Actually, I have two questions. Why are all of the posts indicated as being done so long ago? Is this not an active site? Some of the subjects are over 10 months old with no activity since.
But actually, I want to know why the site has not pushed on Medicare and the insurance companies to approve folding power chairs. I have bought a folding power chair (I will name the company to those interested) but without any financial help from Medicare or insurance (Humana) because they consider the chair a “recorational vehicle”. It is anything BUT. My caregiver (my wife) and I are both 84 years old and cannot handle a chair that weighs 80+ pounds. The chair I bought weighs only 41 pounds (then you add the 12 pounds of batteries). It folds to put in the trunk of the car, and will go 10 miles on each of the two batteries. It is a life saver for someone with emphysema and a short garage. Has any research been done for those of us with Lung Cancer on mobility? Does anyone even care?
