Please Note: Medicare pays for hospital bed rentals only. The hospital beds that we rent are Full Electric Hospital Beds (FEHB). These types of beds are an out of pocket upgrade to the Fixed Hospital Bed that Medicare covers. To obtain a Full Electric Hospital Bed, upon qualification, we will apply Medicare's Fee Schedule to the rental rate of a Full Electric Hospital Bed.
[FEHB Rental $180/month - Medicare ~~$60/month] = Out of pocket $85/month] 13/months)
