Durable medical equipment (DME) is provided by insurances to assists patients in the home environment. Equipment, like wheelchairs, walkers and hospital beds, are provided to facilitate “getting around” in your home. Most homes are not suited for someone who is suffering from serious injury, recovering after extensive surgery or suffering from a serious condition. There are certain conveniences an individual needs to sleep comfortably or move from room to another.
Therapeutic benefits are also involved as DME helps patients perform daily activities and tasks otherwise not accomplishable without the proper equipment. DME is meant to provide stability and safety to anyone in need. Loved ones greatly benefit from special equipment because DME assumes a helping hand position, which is very much needed during difficult times.
Your doctor will prescribe the equipment you will need following surgery or diagnosis. In the best of all possible situations, your insurance provider will approve the prescribed item.
