Durable medical equipment (DME) is reusable medical equipment such as walkers, wheelchairs, or hospital beds. In general, DME is covered at 80% of the allowance. DME must be medically appropriate and directly related to the treatment of the patient’s particular illness or injury. Before renting or buying DME, it is recommended that you contact the Fund Office at 301-731-1050 or at 1-800-929-3983 to verify that the equipment is covered.
For information about sharing DME through the IBEW Local 26 Retired Members Club, see here.
