Will Medicare Pay For My Mobility Equipment?
Being reimbursed by Medicare is a very lengthy and complicated process. Their requirements for eligibility are quite extensive, and you could be waiting around for months for an answer from them. If you are unable to pay the full amount of your mobility equipment, we recommend you pay in installments over time by selecting “Shop Pay” at checkout.
Below is a list of things to keep in mind when trying to get reimbursement from Medicare. If you’re still confused, we strongly suggest you give Medicare a call to clarify any information.
Medicare Phone Number: 1-800-633-4227
Important things to consider before using Medicare for reimbursement:
1.) Sometimes, you may need a doctor's prescription in order to be reimbursed for the equipment. Please ask Medicare if that's the case for your situation.
2.) If approved, Medicare Part B usually covers up to 80% of the cost of the equipment, but in some cases, they may cover all of it.
3.) Although we do not accept direct payment from Medicare or any other insurance, we can offer itemized receipts and medicare billing codes upon request to help with the reimbursement process. Simply send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 800-971-5369 to let us know you will be requesting that info after you purchase.
4.) Medicare and other insurance will often only cover certain models of scooters and wheelchairs. Please call Medicare first to make sure the item that you are buying is Medicare approved.
