Your Medicare Coverage

Is my test, item, or service covered?


How often is it covered?

Generally, Medicare doesn’t cover room humidifiers or other similar items, like room heaters, dehumidifiers, or electric air cleaners.   

However, Medicare covers humidifiers used with certain covered durable medical equipment (DME) when medically necessary.

Your costs in Original Medicare

You pay 100% for most room humidifiers or other similar items. You won’t have to pay a separate amount for an oxygen humidifier. The cost of a humidifier will be included in the monthly fee for your oxygen equipment.
