Memorial Hermann Home Care offers a wide range of home equipment and supplies, including but not limited to oxygen, sleep therapy equipment, wheelchairs, hospital beds and urological supplies.
Most insurance plans cover Durable Medical Equipment (DME) costing $150 in total or more on a rental basis. If the patient no longer needs the item, please contact us and we will arrange to pick up the item.
If the patient needs the item for at least 12-13 months, the item will convert from a rental to a purchase. Since all insurance plans are different, please contact our customer service or billing office for more information specific to your plan.
Medicare insurance plans cover oxygen equipment from a supplier for a total of 36 months. After 36 months, we will bill once a year per maintenance. Visit Medicare.gov for more information.
Most insurance companies cover the rental as long as the patient needs the oxygen equipment.
Refer to the Frequently Asked Questions for information about the frequency for reordering supplies.
Your health plan has rules that apply to HME coverage. For instance, some health plans might not charge you directly and will cover the cost of qualified, in-network home medical equipment. With other plans, you might be responsible for your coinsurance payment, or a percentage of the costs of the equipment, whether rented or purchased.
If you have a supplemental insurance policy, it can help offset out-of-pocket expenses after your supplemental plan’s deductible has been satisfied. Most plans will determine what types of HME they will cover based on your package, ailment, and medical needs. Contact your insurer, using the toll-free number on your insurance card, to get specifics about your coverage.

Sleep Apnea is a sleep disorder where breathing is interrupted during sleep. People who have sleep apnea will stop breathing repeatedly throughout their sleep cycle. This disruption in a person’s breathing pattern may cause the brain to not get enough oxygen. If you snore loudly and feel tired during the day after a full night’s sleep, you may have sleep apnea.Learn More About Sleep Apnea
