This includes those with wheels or without wheels. They are generally covered partially or completely by insurance under the following circumstances:

They must determine which is the least level of equipment needed to help you be mobile within your home to accomplish daily activities by performing a mobility evaluation. The type wheelchair or scooter will be determined if canes, crutches, walkers and rollators or any other previously mentioned equipment will not assist in improving your completion of MRADLs.
