The Maryland Department of Aging (“MDoA”) is excited to announce the launch of its statewide Durable Medical Equipment (“DME”) Reuse Program.
Many residents of Maryland require the use of durable medical equipment such as wheelchairs, walkers, bathroom aids, and other assistive devices, in order to maintain their safety and mobility. Often the cost of this equipment is a serious burden, not only to uninsured residents, but also to insured residents whose insurance will not approve the equipment needed or whose approval is delayed. To address this need, MDoA has developed this innovative program to provide durable medical equipment to Maryland residents. The program will serve Marylanders with any illness, injury, or disability, regardless of age, at no cost. All donations will be sanitized, refurbished and redistributed to the public free of charge. This service will improve the mobility and quality of life for many Maryland residents.
The DME Reuse Program can only operate with the assistance of donations. Not only will these donations help improve someone’s world, but they will also dramatically improve the environment by diverting DME from landfill. To inquire about donating OR becoming a local DME distribution or donation site, please visit the MDoA website.
