Durable Medical Equipment (DME)

Montana Healthcare Programs generally does not cover Durable Medical Equipment, Prosthetics, Orthotics and Supplies (DMEPOS) for members on Basic Medicaid.

Essential for Employment

In limited circumstances, Medicaid will cover a DME service normally not covered under Basic Medicaid if it is essential to obtaining or maintaining employment. Prior to receiving DME services as an Essential for Employment benefit, the member must obtain eligibility through their Local Office of Public Assistance.
