ndependence. Security. Good health. Goals desired by us all. But, as we grow older, attaining and maintaining these goals is more challeng ing. Innovations and advance ments in home medical equip ment have made it easier for older adults to reach these goals and to remain in their own homes. home can be a personal residence or an apart ment in a continuing care/retirement community or other complex. Whether recovering from an accident, illness or surgery; living with a disability; or, adjusting to the normal effects of growing older, living at home can be a realistic and attainable goal. home medical equipment companies provide the ser vices, equipment and supplies to assist many individuals who believe home is where they want to be. In consulta tion with your physician and other health care professionals, the right products and services can be prescribed and provid ed. Many of these products and services are covered by Medicare, Medicaid or private insurance. here is a partial list

your insurance coverage may include several preferred providers of home medical equipment, supplies and ser vices. To help you decide which provider to use, ask your physician or relatives and friends who may have been served by a home med ical equipment company. or, contact the companies yourself and ask questions that include: • Will the provider bill my insurance, Medicare and/or Medicaid when appropri ate? • does the provider train, supervise and monitor its clinical services and delivery personnel? • Will the company deliver the products and provide instructions on their use? • does the company provide 24-hour service? • Is the provider accredited? using products and ser vices provided by home med ical equipment companies can add to your good health and feeling of independence and security.
