Q: Does Medicare purchase or rent durable medical equipment?
A: Depending on the type of durable medical equipment (DME) you need, Medicare may require that you either rent or buy it. Most equipment is initially rented, including many manual and power wheelchairs. Original Medicare covers 80% of the cost of a monthly rental fee for 13 months. You pay a 20% coinsurance.
Q: Why is my equipment a rental?
A: Insurance determines whether or not your equipment will be rented or purchased. In most cases, your equipment will rent monthly until it meets purchase price. Transcend Medical owns the equipment until it is purchased.
Q: How long will my equipment rent?
A: It depends on your insurance company’s guidelines. Most items above rent for 10 - 36 months. There are a few items that rent continuously. Your insurance company determines how many months they will rent an item.
Q: Will my rental copay be the same each month?
A: The amount you are billed may vary and is dependent on a few things:
If your insurance processes more than one monthly bill at a time, you may be billed for more than one month’s copay at a time.
Some insurance companies pay a higher rate in the first few months of the rental. If that happens, your monthly copay may decrease over time.
If your insurance initially covers your equipment as a rental, then converts it a sale shortly thereafter, your final copay bill may be higher.
If your insurance policy includes a deductible, your billed amount may be higher until the deductible has been met. For information about your deductible, please contact your insurance company.
Rates vary by insurance. If your insurance changes, it may affect your billed amount and / or the rental status of your equipment. Please contact us at 1-800-403-3740 or email us firstname.lastname@example.org immediately if your insurance changes.
