Steps to Obtaining a Wheelchair through Insurance
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.
Most insurances, including Medicare, will cover a manual or power wheelchair depending on your mobility needs. Qualifying criteria may include:
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.
The reasonable useful life (RUL) of a wheelchair is five years. Most insurances will cover a new chair after that time.
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.
