Are you eligible for a new wheelchair thru Medicare?

Do you currently own a wheelchair that Medicare purchased for you?  Is the wheelchair at least 5 years old?  If so you are probably eligible for a brand new wheelchair thru Medicare.  Medicare will pay for a new wheelchair every 5 years or 60 months.  Whether it is a manual wheelchair, lightweight wheelchair, bariatric wheelchair or even a power wheelchair you can get a brand new one using Medicare Insurance.  Our staff can check to see if you are eligible.  Call our office today to find out!  Wouldn’t it be nice to ride around in a brand new one!

 

The process is simple.  We would need a new prescription from your doctor for the new wheelchair.  If it is for a manual wheelchair then we can take care of the rest.  If is for a power wheelchair then the process can a take a month or more.  Please be patient with us as many steps need to be taken to ensure we have the correct paperwork so Medicare will pay.  Often times we are waiting on doctors to fill out forms and return them and they are usually slow about it.  We always do our best to speed the process along so you can have your new wheelchair as quickly as possible.
