For HME employees and representatives only:
If the Customer is receiving rented equipment, please check the box below:
[ ] Rental Terms and Conditions Apply
ATTENTION CUSTOMER: If the box below above is checked, the provisions below also apply to you.
In addition to the Terms above, the following rental terms and conditions below apply to you and to the Rental Equipment (defined below).
HME hereby agrees to lease to the Customer, and the Customer hereby agrees to lease from HME, the equipment for lease described in the Order, together with all accessories, additions, repairs and replacements parts affixed thereto, now or in the future (the “Rental Equipment”). For the purpose of clarification, the term “Product” used in the general terms and conditions shall include the Rental Equipment.
The rental term shall commence on the date of HME’s acceptance as indicated in the Order and shall continue on a month-to-month basis, until terminated by HME or the Customer by thirty (30) days’ prior written notice, unless otherwise indicated in the Order (the “Rental Term”).
TITLE: The Customer acknowledges and confirms that HME does not offer “rent-to-own” plans or purchase financing plans. Title to the Rental Equipment shall remain, at all times, with HME unless a sales agreement for the purchase of the Rental Equipment, separate from these Terms, is executed by HME and the Customer.
If elected in the Order, HME shall deliver the Rental Equipment to the Customer on or before the commencement of the Rental Term. If the Customer does not elect in the Order for HME to deliver the Rental Equipment, the Customer shall be responsible, at the Customer’s own risk and expense, to pick up the Rental Equipment at the HME location set out in the Order on the first day of the Rental Term and to return the Rental Equipment at the end of the Rental Term. If the Customer fails to pick up the Rental Equipment within ten (10) days after the first day of the Rental Term, HME may, at its sole option, cancel the Order.
(1) Commencing on the first day of the Rental Term and continuing until the Rental Equipment is returned to HME, the Customer shall pay to HME (a) the full amount of each the weekly or monthly payment as specified in the Order (the “Periodic Charge”) on the first day of each month or week, or (b) if specified in the Order, the full amount of rental charge payable for the entire duration of the Rental Term (the “Term Charge”).
(2) If a Term Charge is applicable, such an amount shall be payable in full by the Customer before the commencement of the Rental Term, and the Customer is not entitled to any refund of the Term Charge even if the Customer returns the Rental Equipment to HME before the end of the Rental Term.
(3) If the Rental Equipment is not returned on or before the end of the Rental Term, then (a) if the Order specifies a Periodic Charge, a full Periodic Charge shall continue to apply for each additional month or week (or portion thereof) after the end of the Rental Term until the Rental Equipment is returned, or (b) if the Order does not specify a Periodic Charge, the Customer shall be liable to HME for the Periodic Charge applicable to the Rental Equipment for each month or a portion thereof until the Rental Equipment is returned.
(4) No refund or discount or other allowance will be made for any Rental Equipment or portion thereof which the Customer claims has not been used during the Rental Term. Acceptance of returned Rental Equipment does not constitute a waiver of any rights HME has under these Terms. In the event a third-party purchaser fails to make payment to HME for any reason, the Customer shall be responsible for all charges relating to the Rental Equipment.
If the Customer fails to pay any part of the Periodic Charges or Term Charges or other amount due under the Order or these Terms, within 30 DAYS of its due date, the Customer agrees to pay HME: (a) on the first month, a late charge to compensate HME for collecting and processing the late amount, which late charge is stipulated and liquidated at $45.00 plus any chargeback or other administrative fees charged by a third party; plus (b) interest for every month after the first month in which the amount is late to compensate HME for the inability to reinvest the amount, which charge is stipulated and liquidated at 9% per annum (or at the maximum rate allowable under applicable law, whichever is less), calculated monthly on the delayed amount outstanding from time to time during this month (collectively, the “Late Charge”).
To facilitate rental payments, HME Home Health requires the maintenance of an active credit card on record. You can securely submit your credit card details via a portal link sent by our accounting team, or alternatively, you may choose to provide the information over the phone.
The Customer shall maintain the Rental Equipment in good working condition at the Customer’s own expense. Normal wear and tear is expected. The Customer agrees to inspect the Rental Equipment upon receipt and to notify HME of any damages, malfunctions, or missing components in the Rental Equipment as soon as possible, and in any case, no later than three (3) business days after the Rental Equipment is delivered to the Customer.
While the Rental Equipment is in the Customer’s possession, the Customer assumes all risk of loss and damage to the Rental Equipment from any cause whatsoever. The Customer shall compensate HME for all costs associated with the replacement of any lost or stolen Rental Equipment. The Customer shall reimburse HME for the costs incurred to repair or replace the Rental Equipment or its parts such that the Rental Equipment is restored to the same condition as at the time of rental, accommodating for normal wear and tear as may be expected during the ordinary and intended use of the Rental Equipment during the Rental Term. HME’s invoice for replacement or repair is conclusive as the amount Customer shall pay under this paragraph for repair or replacement.
The Customer will, and any third-party purchaser to, indemnify, defend and hold harmless the HME Parties from and against any and all Claims arising from loss or damage to the Rental Equipment, providing that the Claim does not arise from defective installation of the Rental Equipment by HME.
Upon the occurrence of non-payment of a Periodic Charge for two (2) consecutive months, and at any time thereafter, HME may exercise any rights and remedies available to it under applicable law, and without limiting such rights or remedies, HME may do any or all of the following: (a) take action to enforce the Customer’s performance of his or her obligations under these Terms; (b) take action to recover damages, costs and expenses incurred by HME by reason of the Customer’s non-payment; (c) elect to terminate these Terms and take action to recover the Rental Equipment from the Customer; and (d) repossess the Rented Equipment by any method permitted by law.
If the Rental Equipment fails to operate in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications during the Rental Term, HME shall replace the Rental Equipment with identical or similar equipment as soon as practicable after the Customer returns the Rental Equipment to HME.
The Customer shall not make any action or omission which results in a pledge or encumbrance against the Rental Equipment in any way. HME may terminate the lease and these Terms immediately upon the failure of the Customer to make payments when due, or upon the filing for bankruptcy or protection from creditors by the Customer in any court of competent jurisdiction.
