In the world of purchasing breastpumps or other types of medical supplies, the term DME gets frequently tossed around. If you are one of those who is curious as to what a DME is, and how it affects your acquisition of a breastpump, this blog is for you!
For starters, DME stands for Durable Medical Equipment. Durable Medical Equipment is classified as anything that you can use in the home to help enhance quality of life for an individual. This does include breastpumps since they can be used in the home, and are intended to enhance quality of life for the user.
Aeroflow is considered a Durable Medical Equipment provider because we offer an avenue for people to purchase this type of medical equipment.
Now as you know, anyone can purchase breastpumps from retail stores or through other websites like Amazon or eBay. However, if you purchase your breastpump through a DME provider such as Aeroflow, chances are your insurance company is going to cover those costs for you. Insurance companies do not cover purchases through retailers. Essentially, DMEs are a way for you to acquire a free breastpump through your insurance. So if you are in need of a new breastpump and have insurance, going through a DME is your best bet.
