Medicare coverage of Hospital Beds
Last Updated: 03/12/2009
Medicare covers physician prescribed hospital beds as "capped rental" equipment. This means that you must use a vendor that rents equipment and bills Medicare for the monthly payments.  We advise you to seek a local dealer that rents since Medicare will require them to install and maintain this "capped rental" equipment.  Medicare considers a hospital bed to be a semi-electric hospital bed, not a full-electric bed, not a Deluxe bed, not a Luxury bed.
