Getting Your Power Wheelchair Without Insurance

Getting a Power Wheelchair Without Insurance

Many patients call Aeroflow Healthcare in need of a power mobility device; unfortunately not everyone qualifies for an assistive device through their specific insurance guidelines. In order for insurance to pay for a power device, many providers want to know why other devices have failed to aid you with your mobility issues.

Insurance Process

First, insurance will require that you set up a face-to-face mobility assessment with your healthcare provider.  During this assessment your physician will state objectively why a cane, walker, and manual wheelchair have failed to assist you with your current activities of daily living within the home.

You can visit the Medicare website to see the official items that insurance will pay for as well as the guidelines for each item. Many individuals do not ultimately qualify for a power device for use inside the home. Most patients are able to get from room to room in their home, however doing other activities that require a greater distance of walking such as shopping at the grocery store or at the local mall is not possible for them to accomplish.

If you need a device for long distances or for outside use, don’t worry; you’re not out of luck!
