Thread: Medicare & Hospital Beds.

  1. #1

    Exclamation Medicare & Hospital Beds.

    I need a hospital bed. I've been injured for almost 3 years and have been using my regular bed since then with no issues. Lucky me.

    I need a hospital bed now and I just got on medicare.

    Does medicare reimburse me 80% for a hospital bed only if it's used?

    I've been contacting vendors and they've been telling me that medicare will reimbrse me 80% for a used bed with a used mattress.

    Is there something I'm missing?

    Medicare will pay $160 a month for 12 months on a used bed? They could spend $800 on a new one. It makes sense for a temporary condition, but I dont have a temporary condition.

    I have Medicare & Medicaid and it paid monthly 100%.
    Then it's mine when paid in full.
    Either 18 or 24 mos.

    Good Luck
