Getting and finding the durable medical equipment (DME) can be a challenge… here is a PDF for the current equipment lending closets/programs in Southern Arizona.
I currently work in the home health setting with primarily older adults and many of our clients are in need of affordable options for durable medical equipment. Insurance companies, including Medicare (what Medicare covers), cover SOME equipment, but many times clients and their family members are left with the responsibility and task of figuring out what equipment the client needs and how to get it. Additionally, for insurance and Medicare to cover the equipment, the clients must meet very specific criteria and have a physician prescription (in most cases).
Anyway, I put together a list of the lending closets and programs in Southern Arizona which will hopefully benefit consumers and providers in the area. Enjoy!
