Getting a Mobility Device Through Insurance

Getting a Mobility Device Through Insurance

Mobility devices can be covered by insurance in certain cases but requires a visit to the doctor, a prescription, sometimes a therapy visit and no device ordered within the past 5 years. It can take 2-3 months to get the device. But it is worth it to go through insurance for custom devices. If you need that we can refer you!

Why we know this works

If you want to try to get a manual wheelchair, scooter or power wheelchair through insurance follow these steps:

1. Schedule an in person visit with the physician or nurse practitioner - they'll need to write a prescription and write they recommend it in their clinic notes.
2. Connect with a wheelchair provider in your area that accepts your insurance. Use the Medicare Supplier Directory to help.
3. They will help you the rest of the way by scheduling a wheelchair evaluation, collecting paperwork and getting it sent to the insurance provider for approval. Finally they will provide the chair and maintenance for the next 5 years.
