If you have trouble moving around within your home, and are unable to use a cane/walker, or a standard manual wheelchair, a power wheelchair may be right for you. A power wheelchair is a motorized version of a standard wheelchair, controlled via the use of a joystick mounted on the armrest. Our power wheelchairs are fully adjustable, and come in varieties that can accommodate any size and shape. They are easily maneuverable in tight spaces, and fit well in almost any home. Those with mobility issues, such as arthritis and back pain, as well as those with respiratory issues such as COPD are all good candidates for power wheelchairs. We are able to bill Medicare, Medicaid, and most private insurances for a power wheelchair.
Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) covers durable medical equipment (DME) however your doctor will have to prescribe this for you in order to begin the process. It is important to understand that only your doctor can prescribe the use of medical equipment that will be approved under Medicare and Medicaid. Medicare will cover DME if the following criteria are met:
- The device is durable (long-lasting)
- It is used for a medical reason and is considered a medical necessity by your doctor
- Used in your home and will assist in enhancing your ability to complete ADLs (activities of daily living).
All individuals who have Medicare and Medicaid can be considered for payment of DME and because Aeroflow is licensed by Medicare and Medicaid we are able to help you get a power wheelchair. Our mobility specialist work closely with your doctor and insurance to make sure that you will be covered; and at what percentage, for your DME. Give us a call today to start the process of regaining your independence. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
