PLEASE READ: Important Transition of your MedEQUIP Products & Services

Dear MedEQUIP Patient,

We are writing to inform you that Michigan Medicine’s MedEQUIP will be sold on or about September 4, 2018. The purchasers of the MedEQUIP are Binson’s Medical Equipment & Supplies (Binson’s) and CareLinc Home Medical Equipment & Supply (CareLinc).

Michigan Medicine and MedEQUIP have and will continue to work closely with Binson’s and CareLinc to facilitate the transfer of your care. Michigan Medicine chose these suppliers because they have committed to making this transition as smooth as possible for you, as our valued patient. As always, you are free to select the DME supplier of your choice.

Binson’s and CareLinc are also established DME companies. Binson’s service areas include Ann Arbor and areas to the east, south and north of Ann Arbor. CareLinc concentrates on communities west of Ann Arbor. Both offer delivery, mail order and web-based services. In order to make this transition easier for you, these companies are working together in this transition.

Unless we hear from you otherwise before September 4, 2018, your medical records pertaining to your MedEQUIP DME supplies will be transferred to either Binson’s or CareLinc, depending on their coverage area and ability to serve your needs.

If you would like your care to be transferred to either Binson’s or CareLinc (depending on their coverage and ability to serve your needs), you do not need to do anything at this time. You may call the MedEQUIP Transition Team (Monday – Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., 800-530-0714) to learn whether your care and records were transferred to Binson’s or CareLinc.

If, however, you want your records transferred to another supplier, we must hear from you by September 4, 2018. You can call the MedEQUIP Transition Team (Monday – Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., 800-530-0714).

If you select a different supplier, then Binson’s or CareLinc will contact you to collect the equipment in your home.

MedEQUIP very much appreciates the opportunity to have been your DME supplier and hopes to facilitate a smooth transition for you. Below is the contact information for the Michigan Medicine transition team, Binson’s and CareLinc. We are available to answer your questions and assist you during this transition.
