Wheelchair Pricing & Costs
Unlike electric scooters, during the electric wheelchair ordering process you will have a number of options to choose from that could affect the price of the wheelchair, such as high-performance wheels, power options, or a cool paint job.
Your wheelchair budget might be dictated by your insurance coverage. Medicare sets ceilings on the price they will approve, whereas some private insurers pay a given percentage of the cost. Take time to research your coverage, including any co-pay you might be responsible for.
Having an accurate prescription often affects an insurer's approval of the wheelchair you need. When you determine your wheelchair needs, ask your doctor to include those specifications on the prescription. Otherwise, your doctor could simply write down "one electric wheelchair" on the prescription.
