Renting Home Medical Equipment

When considering rental:

  • Look at the possibility of renting with an option to purchase. Under this method, you are under no obligation to buy. However, if you do buy, this method allows you to apply all rental payments against the purchase price.
  • Keep in mind that when you rent, you have the advantage that there is usually a knowledgeable company representative available to service the equipment for you. Check the servicing arrangements before agreeing to the rental. Read the other terms of the rental contract carefully (including who is liable if the equipment is damaged or stolen). If you are not comfortable reading the contract, ask a friend or relative to do it for you. If you have continuing questions, ask a lawyer.
  • Check to see who is liable in the event of damage or total loss. If you are liable, check your Homeowners Insurance policy to find out if rented equipment is covered. If not, contact your insurance company or broker and have it added.
