What do you think of when you hear the term “durable medical equipment?” The first thing that comes to my mind is something that is going to withstand repeated, heavy duty use like a wheelchair, or walker. However, for medicare and other insurance companies, this is partly true, but it also means anything that is going to be used long term in the home that is normally used to treat a long-term condition. This actually broadens my own personal definition of what I thought “durable medical equipment” meant, and may do the same for you, as well.
