If your child needs medical equipment, there are several places to look. You may be able to borrow equipment from your local pharmacy, school, volunteer agency, or medical recycling company. Your child's doctor or rehabilitation specialist can advise you on which items can be reused. Durable medical equipment suppliers offer new equipment. Just like buying any product, it is wise to shop around for the best prices, selection, and service. Try to rent rather than buy equipment if your child is likely to outgrow it quickly. Your choices of equipment suppliers may be limited by your location or your insurance coverage. Listed below are some questions to ask your durable medical equipment (DME) supplier.
