What steps must be taken to obtain insurance funding for a wheelchair?

Steps to Obtaining a Wheelchair through Insurance

  1. Most insurances require the patient to have a face-to-face examination by the treating physician to determine if a manual or power mobility device is necessary.
  2. A Frontier ATP will complete an evaluation to ensure that you get the equipment that fits you and meets your needs. We will work with your Physical or Occupational Therapist if they are involved with your evaluation.
  3. Frontier will work with your insurance to verify they will cover the equipment based on your medical need.
  4. Ordering the equipment, delivery, and adjustments will be made by Frontier Home Medical. We will be sure that you are comfortable with your equipment and any concerns are addressed at the time of delivery.

The steps to obtaining a wheelchair with insurance funding may vary based on your insurance and the type of mobility device that will meet your needs. For a more detailed explanation of what is needed for your specific insurance, don’t hesitate to get in touch with your local Frontier Home Medical location.

How can I qualify for insurance coverage for a wheelchair?

Most insurances, including Medicare, will cover a manual or power wheelchair depending on your mobility needs. Qualifying criteria may include:

  • Impaired ability to walk
  • An appropriately fitted cane or walker was trialed and failed to meet your needs within the home
  • Requires a manual or power wheelchair to perform daily tasks inside the home
Will Medicare cover a wheelchair if I live in a nursing home?

Medicare will not cover a wheelchair if the patient lives in a nursing home. Durable Medical Equipment (DME) is covered under a patient’s Medicare home health benefits. When patients live in a nursing home, they are no longer eligible for home health benefits. The nursing home would be responsible for providing durable medical equipment for the patient to borrow.

Nebraska Medicaid and some private insurances will cover the cost of a wheelchair while a patient is residing in a nursing home.

How often can I get a new chair?

The reasonable useful life (RUL) of a wheelchair is five years. Most insurances will cover a new chair after that time.

Does my insurance cover ramps?

Ramps are not an insurance-covered item. However, Frontier Home Medical can help you get the ramp that meets your needs and assist you with funding options that will work for you.
