Medicare Rollator Coverage

Did you know that a medicare rollator purchased thru Medicare has to go thru a contracted supplier?  To find a contracted supplier for your area you can contact Medicare or go to their website or call us and we can help you.

Unfortunately, Medicare only pays for a walker so the cost difference between a walker and a rollator must be paid by the patient.  Usually the cost is $64-$100 depending on the brand.Medicare Rollator with Loop Brakes

There are also a few hoops to jump thru to get coverage for a walker/rollator.  The patient cannot have any mobility equipment on file with Medicare for the previous 5 years.  If you do you will not qualify for coverage.  Additionally, you must have a prescription for a walker/rollator from your doctor.

Many of our customers actually choose NOT to bother with Medicare’s rules and purchase a rollator out of their own pocket.  The cost out of pocket is anywhere from $149-$189 for a rollator.
