If you need a scooter for mobility and you meet your insurance's coverage guidelines, they may pay for all or part of the cost of the scooter.  Coverage criteria and payment amounts will vary depending on the type of insurance you have.  Most heath care insurance companies, including Medicare, have minimum requirements that need to be met before they will purchase a scooter for you.

Power Operated Vehicles (POVs)/Scooters

Medicare Coverage Criteria

A power operated vehicle (POV) is covered when all of the following criteria are met:

1.  The patient's condition is such that a wheelchair is required for the patient to get around in the home,

2.  The patient is unable to operate a manual wheelchair,

3.  The patient is capable of safely operating the controls for the POV, and

4.  The patient can transfer safely in and out of the POV and has adequate trunk stability to be able to safely ride in the POV.

Most POVs are ordered for patients who are capable of ambulation within the home but require a power vehicle for movement outside the home. POVs will be denied as not medically necessary in these circumstances.
A POV that is beneficial primarily in allowing the patient to perform leisure or recreational activities will be denied as not medically necessary.
If a POV is covered, a wheelchair provided at the same time or subsequently will usually be denied as not medically necessary.
A POV is usually covered only if it is ordered by a physician who is one of the following specialties: Physical Medicine, Orthopedic Surgery, Neurology, or Rheumatology. When such a specialist is not reasonably accessible, e.g. more than one day's round trip from the beneficiary' s home, or the patient' s condition precludes such travel, a prescription from the beneficiary' s physician may be acceptable.

If you feel you meet these requirements, you may be eligible to receive the most stylish, best performing and most reliable scooter available on the market today.  Please call us at (845) 353-5451.
