I have Original Medicare
If Original Medicare already paid for durable medical equipment (DME) (like a wheelchair or walker) or supplies (like diabetic supplies) damaged or lost due to an emergency or disaster:
- In certain cases, Medicare will cover the cost to repair or replace your equipment or supplies
- Generally, Medicare will also cover the cost of rentals for items (like wheelchairs) during the time your equipment is being repaired
Call us at 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227) to get more information about how to replace your equipment or supplies.
I have a Medicare Advantage Plan or other Medicare health plan
Contact your plan to find out how it replaces DME or supplies damaged or lost in an emergency or disaster.
