How to select the best alternating pressure mattress for my family member?
The most expensive mattress does not mean its the best choice for you!!
Here is why.
People call us all the time and say "I saw another alternating pressure mattress system at my local distributor for $8000.00 -$15,000 Your mattress is $1450.00 what is the difference?? Our answer is nothing !
Many of the high priced adjustable air mattresses have the same medicare codes as the less expensive models. These medical distributors bill through medicare. If you want to buy an air mattress from a local medical distributor they will often sell you their products for the same price that medicare would have reimbursed them for over time!.
We are a manufacturing group. We have no conflict of interest billing through medicare or insurance company's. All of our products are manufactured and are brand new. We will not sell you a used or rental product like many of the home health care distributors.
