Durable Medical Equipment

Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) covers durable medical equipment (DME) that your doctor prescribes for use in your home. Only your doctor can prescribe medical equipment for you. DME meets these criteria:
– Durable (long-lasting) – Used for a medical reason
– Not usually useful to someone who isn’t sick or injured – Used in your home
A complete list of DME that Medicare covers is available on Medicare.gov:
