Will Medicare Pay For My Mobility Equipment?

Obtaining reimbursement from Medicare can be a lengthy and intricate process. Their eligibility requirements are extensive, and it may take months to receive a response. If you are unable to pay for your mobility equipment in full, we recommend considering the option of paying in installments over time by selecting "Shop Pay" at checkout.

Here are some important points to keep in mind when seeking reimbursement from Medicare. If you still have doubts or confusion, we strongly advise you to contact Medicare directly for clarification.

Medicare Phone Number: 1-800-633-4227

Things to consider before using Medicare for reimbursement:

  1. Doctor's Prescription: In some cases, you may need a doctor's prescription to be eligible for equipment reimbursement. Please inquire with Medicare to determine if this applies to your situation.

  2. Coverage Percentage: If approved, Medicare Part B typically covers up to 80% of the equipment cost, but there are instances where they may cover the entire amount.

  3. Payment Process: Although we do not accept direct payment from Medicare or any other insurance, we can provide itemized receipts and Medicare billing codes upon request to assist with the reimbursement process. Please contact us via email at contact@astrahealthnow.com or call us at (800) 281-3653 to notify us of your intention to request this information after making a purchase.

  4. Approved Models: Medicare and other insurance plans often only cover specific models of scooters and wheelchairs. It is advisable to contact Medicare first to ensure that the item you intend to purchase is approved by them.
