Medicare Hospital Beds
We do not bill Medicare for Hospital Beds delivered thru an Internet purchase. You must visit a local dealer that rents beds and bills Medicare. Hospital Beds are a 'Capped Rental' item thru Medicare. Medicare covers 80% of the monthly rental for a year. After that period you may elect to purchase the hospital bed from the dealer.
