Finding yourself in need of medical equipment can cause stress to you and your family, especially when time or funding are limiting factors. Buying a piece of equipment may not be an affordable option especially if the equipment is only needed for a short period of time. Waiting for your insurance company to approve the purchase may also cause a frustrating waiting period between needing the equipment and receiving it. In these cases, medical equipment rental is an efficient solution.
When to Use Medical Equipment Rental
In Case of Emergency
If an accident happens and specific medical equipment is needed as quickly as possible. We offer a wide range of the most commonly needed pieces of medical equipment that can be delivered to your home for immediate use. Some of the most asked for after a discharge from a hospital or rehab facility are; hospital beds, wheelchairs, walkers, patient lifts and bathroom safety equipment. Renting ensures you are not stranded without help.
Healthcare Plan Does Not Cover Equipment
If a patient does not qualify for a specific piece of equipment renting the equipment to cover the immediate need, may be the best answer. Being in a position of this type is stressful to both the patients and to the care givers. Renting medical equipment can remedy the immediate needs and ensure you that you are able to take care of your loved ones. This relief of care can also help you to make better decisions when the emergency of equipment has been handled.
Insurance Waiting Periods
If a patient is discharged and must wait days or weeks for insurance to authorize equipment, patients may be left with deciding between using what you already have at home, or renting the equipment to provide safety in the home.
Most insurance equipment has limited ranges. We offer many types of specialized equipment which we keep up to date with the latest advances in medical equipment. Our equipment is new, and saves you from needing to invest in equipment and then reinvest each time newer technology comes out.
Temporary Care and Short Stays
If a patient is going on holiday or visiting family, and their equipment is not transportable, then medical equipment rental can be an easy way to keep the patient comfortable and safe while away without causing a large inconvenience.
In a practice, care home, or a private household if equipment becomes damaged and requires repairs or replacement, renting equipment offers an immediate solution that allows you to keep functioning without putting the patient at risk.
