There’s now an easier way to find medical equipment & supplies

When you or a loved one needs medical equipment like a wheelchair, hospital bed, or walker, it may be hard to know where to start, and what suppliers carry the equipment you need. That’s why we’ve launched an improved supplier directory to help you more easily search for suppliers of Medicare-covered equipment and supplies.

Medicare’s improved supplier directory includes new features and functionality to help you:

  • Customize your search with better search capabilities, and compare up to 3 suppliers at a time
  • Easily find medical equipment and supplies using plain language descriptions  
  • Find suppliers in your area that carry the products you need using an interactive map

The improved directory also includes 2 new product categories – off-the-shelf back and knee braces – that will be introduced when the 2021 Competitive Bidding Program starts on January 1, 2021.

Take a look at the new supplier directory. Have ideas to help us make it even better? Take our survey on Medicare.gov to give us your feedback.

Modernizing the way you find and compare information about health care providers and services builds on previous eMedicare initiative efforts. To stay up-to-date on eMedicare improvements and other important news from Medicare, sign up for our email list and follow us on Facebook.
