What is a DME?

DME means "Durable Medical Equipment".  A DME certification is a status granted to a person or entity by Medicare.  Once that person or entity has been accepted by Medicare they are then allowed to supply durable medical equipment, such as back braces, to Medicare enrollees and are able to be paid according to the Medicare approved price codes and limits.  This privilege is only granted to those persons or entities that have applied properly and have been screened by Medicare in a very specific and lengthy application process.
