What is a "capped rental" item?
A capped rental category consists of any item which meets the following qualifications:
- Not customized
- Not oxygen or oxygen related
- Not routinely purchased
- Not service intensive
The capped rental program enables beneficiaries to spread their share of the rented item's cost over an extended time period rather than paying in a lump sum. It also ensures that the item is paid for only as long as it is needed. Examples of capped rental items include, but are not limited to, the following items:
- Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) devices
- External infusion pumps
- Hospital beds
Note: Condo Pharmacy does not rent medical equipment and as such is unable to furnish any capped rental items to Medicare beneficiaries.
