Medicare and durable medical equipment options

Help for unfortunate falls or permanent disabilities

Whether you need some short-term support or you have a long-term need for medical equipment, durable medical equipment (DME) is covered under your Original Medicare Part B benefits. You’ll need a prescription from your doctor to access coverage to rent or buy eligible equipment.

Covered DME may include:

  • Canes
  • Crutches
  • Wheelchairs
  • Walkers
  • Oxygen equipment
  • Hospital beds
  • Blood sugar monitors
  • Continuous Glucose Monitors (CGMs)—examples include Dexcom and Libre

Don’t be afraid to ask questions

Medicare doesn't cover everything. If you have a healthcare need and you’re not sure if it’s covered, ask your doctor’s office to check for you.
