Infusion pumps & supplies
Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) covers equipment and supplies (like a pump, IV pole, tubing and catheters) for home infusion therapy to administer certain IV infusion drugs to a patient at home. Certain equipment and supplies (like the infusion pump) and the infusion drug are covered under the durable medical equipment (DME) benefit. Medicare also covers services (like nurse visits), training for patients or caregivers, and monitoring. These are covered as that your doctor prescribes for use in your home.
