In this video, you will learn about how to pay for a hospital bed. Guidelines on how to get reimbursed for a hospital bed are hard to meet these days. How to get your hospital bed covered by insurance is complicated. Your doctor does not have any power for the insurance company.
If the insurance company will cover it or not is up to your provider. Insurances will only pay for semi-electric beds. This will only raise the head of the bed or the feet. That is the only two things that are covered by the insurance companies. The main difference is in some beds, the entire bed can be raised up or down. This can come in handy when a caregiver is not that tall. Or, if the person is moving from a chair to a bed. You can get full rail or half rail beds. These can go up and down easily. There is usually a 5-inch foam mattress on it. Typically, you will see an air spring mattress. People coming from a regular bed to a facility will not find these very comfortable.
