WHAT IS A CAPPED RENTAL?

Your insurance, and Medicare, purchase and rent medical equipment. The decision to purchase or rent varies by product. In addition, there are some products that are rented for a period of time then convert to a purchase.

If you have questions about the status of your medical equipment feel free to contact us at (800) 977-3002.
