I'm perfectly fine with used. Is there a good place to buy hospital beds online? I tried calling a couple of companies offering used beds locally but they both seem to be home based operations where I can't even see the bed beforehand. Also, the prices didn't seem much lower than some new beds I've searched for online. Do people have any recommendations?
What's the story with Medicare paying for it? A SNF suggested I get one because it will be needed but when I asked if Medicare would pay for it they said probably not since the criteria for that is high. So we need one but not enough for Medicare to pay for it?
Since they are telling me I would only get a couple of days warning before any possible discharge, I'm feeling kind of anxious to have one ready to go at any time. So I may just buy one on my own instead of having to deal with not having one when it's critically needed.
Any advice on how and where to get a hospital bed is appreciated. I have looked on craigslist, but in my area at least. It seems cheaper to buy new online.
