Enteral nutrition supplies & equipment

Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance)  covers enteral nutrition supplies and equipment (feeding pumps) under the prosthetic device benefit.

Your costs in Original Medicare

After you meet the Part B deductible , you pay 20% of the  Medicare-Approved Amount . Medicare will cover your enteral infusion pump from a Medicare-enrolled doctor or supplier. If a supplier doesn't accept  assignment , there’s no limit on the amount they can charge you. You may also have to pay the entire bill (both your share and Medicare's share) at the time you get the pump.

note:

To find out how much your test, item, or service will cost, talk to your doctor or health care provider. The specific amount you’ll owe may depend on several things, like:

  • Other insurance you may have
  • How much your doctor charges
  • If your doctor accepts assignment
  • The type of facility
  • Where you get your test, item, or service
