Examples of DME
Leg and body braces
Some medical or surgical supplies
Usually, your child will need a prescription from a health care provider for DME. DME is provided by companies (usually called DME vendors or providers) that have a contract with your child's health plan. Contact a Member Services Representative or your child's case manager at the plan to learn more about DME services. Refer to the health plan benefits handbook for more information.
Tip: Keep track of your child's DME on the Supplies/Equipment form in Chapter 1.
