Description

Specialized Equipment and Supplies is a waiver and Alternative Care program service for people who have an assessed need for additional supplies and equipment beyond what is covered by Medical Assistance (MA) and other funding sources.

* Communicate with others


State plan medical equipment and supplies are defined under Minnesota Rules, parts 9505.0310 at http://www.dhs.state.mn.us/id_008993
