    INSURANCE

         DME will bill the major insurance companies for any insurance covered item. Equipment with (CR) is considered a capped rental item under Medicare guidelines. What this means is that we will bill Medicare rental for 10 consecutive months. At this time, you will receive a letter that will ask you if you want to rent or purchase this equipment. If you decide to purchase, we will bill the equipment for 3 more months which will be a total of 13 months. After this time, the equipment will be yours. If you decide to rent, we will bill the equipment for 5 more months and once every six months thereafter.

         If the equipment is listed with (R), the equipment is only available as a rental under Medicare guidelines and will be billed monthly.

         If the equipment is listed with (P), the equipment is a one time purchase.

         Medicare only pays 80% of purchases and rentals. Other insurance companies pay according to individual policies. You may contact your insurance company or employer to determine the amount your policy will pay.

    Clay County Hospital Durable Medical Equipment also carries items that are not covered by insurance such as:

       Adult Diapers (Case)
       Blue Pads (Case)
