Individuals can rent hospital beds from various sources, such as local companies, SpinLife.com and RentItToday.com. Most hospital bed rentals are covered by Medicare if the bed is deemed necessary by a licensed physician.
The types of rentable hospital beds are manual, semi-electric, electric and bariatric. Manual hospital beds are usually the most cost-effective and easy-to-use choice. The bariatric hospital bed is recommended for patients who require more support and spend significantly more time in bed. Spin Life and Rent It Today feature manual, semi-electric, electric and bariatric beds for rent. Most companies rent out hospital beds for a minimum of two weeks and provide discounts for monthly rentals. As of September 2015, the average cost of renting hospitals beds ranges from $200 to $500 per month.
