Durable Medical Equipment

Baraga County Medical Equipment, a service of BCMH, located at 510 Memorial Street in L’Anse (behind the old BCMH hospital), is a local provider of respiratory home products, in addition to a full line of durable medical equipment for use in the home.  

Many insurance carriers cover Home Medical Equipment as a benefit. It is important to note that in order to dispense some types of equipment or bill equipment to an insurance carrier, the first step is a visit to the physician. During this visit the physician evaluates and documents the need for the equipment in the medical record and issues a prescription for the item. Prescriptions can be brought to an equipment provider and based on diagnosis and insurance plan the equipment will either be rented or sold. For equipment or accessories that are not an insurance benefit (reachers, cast covers, bath benches, tub rails etc.) no prescription is needed.  For more information, and answers to questions regarding billing and insurance coverage, call (906) 524-7156.
