Supplier Standard #6 states: "A supplier must notify beneficiaries of warranty coverage and honor all warranties under applicable State law, and repair or replace free of charge Medicare covered items that are under warranty."

Medicare pays for reasonable and necessary labor and parts not otherwise covered under a manufacturer's or supplier's warranty. Unless a warranty specifically excludes an item from the warranty, neither the beneficiary nor the Medicare program may be charged.
