Durable medical equipment refers to any medical equipment used in a home or out of the hospital setting to help a patient complete their daily activities and assist in their health care. It can be power-operated or manual equipment such as wheelchairs and hospital beds, depending on the needs of the person. Insurances can cover DME as long as it’s going to be used for medical purposes only. It is also important to equip every medical team with the proper tools to make sure that they can provide medical services anywhere, anytime.
