A fully electric bed allows you to adjust all sections with a push of a button.
Medicare usually doesn't cover the cost of a fully electric bed. However, if your care receiver meets the requirements for a semi-electric bed, Medicare will pay for that amount and then you (or your care receiver) pay the difference. Check with your health care provider for more information as certain hospice benefits cover a fully electric bed.
A fully adjustable electric bed may be necessary for you – the caregiver – if you have a physical limitation. For example, turning the crank can be difficult or impossible if you have a bad back or arthritic hands. Make sure to talk to the person's doctor about any limitations you yourself may have.
