With the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003 (MMA), a competitive bidding process was required for durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics and supplies. This process requires suppliers to submit bids for selected products and contracts are then awarded.
For Medicare patients, this process can make it more difficult to find the supplies they need, when they need them. Behrens Southern Comfort Medical Supply in Galveston can help.
Behrens Southern Comfort is a Medicare-authorized supplier of oxygen. We also can meet all of your medical supply needs, with great cash discounts are available for Medicare beneficiaries who can’t find or don’t have time to wait on an authorized provider for their supplies.
In their showroom and on their website, www.scmsgalveston.com, you’ll find a wide selection of bath aids, lift chairs, walkers, incontinence supplies, diabetic supplies, compression stockings, infant-child reflux products, mastectomy supplies and more.
