Medicare’s Wheelchair and Scooter Benefit

Medicare Part B covers power scooters, walkers and wheelchairs as durable medical equipment. In order to get these items covered you need to have a written order from your physician, have limited mobility and have a health condition that causes significant difficulty moving around your home. Medicare will not cover this equipment if it’ll be used mainly for leisure or recreational activities.

If you meet all the conditions to get Medicare Part B coverage you will pay 20% of the Medicare-approved amount after you pay your Part B deductible for the year. Medicare pays the other 80%. If you have an Advantage Plan you must contact your plan to discuss the costs and which suppliers you must use.
