Anyone who has Medicare Part B can get durable medical equipment as long as the equipment is prescribed by a doctor as medically necessary.
Durable medical equipment is reusable medical equipment, such as walkers, wheelchairs, or hospital beds.
A hospital or nursing home that is providing you with Medicare-covered care can’t qualify as your “home” in this situation.
However, a long-term care facility can qualify as your home.
