Cheyenne, I came across this on the Medicare website regarding mattresses. I don't know how helpful this might be.

I know this site doesn't advertise items; but, could someone give me a link or two for the type of bed & mattress Medicare approves of? Please?

Physician can write an Rx for an adjustable bed and specify the mattress. Medicare covers 80% of the rental.
