Medicare pays a monthly rental fee for a period not to exceed 15 months for the enteral feeding pump. Medicare requires Centrad Healthcare, LLC to provide you the option of renting or purchasing this item. You may make this decision at any time during rental period. If you decide to rent the item for the full 15 month time period, you will be responsible for the rental payment coinsurance, and Centrad will be responsible for all maintenance and service to the item. If you decide to purchase the item, Medicare will pay Centrad the used purchase allowance less the amount allowed to date for the rentals. You will be responsible for the coinsurance for that payment, the equipment title will be transferred to you, and you will be responsible for future maintenance and service.
