Frequently Asked Questions
Does Insurance cover a power wheelchair or scooter?
Major changes in Medicare and the closing of the Scooter Store bring new challenges to the power mobility industry. Many insurance companies might cover a power wheelchair if your doctor qualifies you with a medical prescription and when activities of daily living within your home are impeded by immobility.
