    Medicare/Medicaid guidelines changed for purchase of all types of chairs. Private insurance has followed suit. Been lots of stuff posted in the last year to try to prevent the changes. Most folks ignore it.

    Welcome to the tightening world of DME. Perhapsif you agree in writing to pay for all non-covered aspects of the chair the DME will order it for you. The DME owner could also try getting a pre-cert from BC/BS first.
    Every day I wake up is a good one

    Kind of off topic, but I've been reading over a bunch of threads lately mainly pertaining to the ZR and didn't you just get one at some point in the last year? How is it you need another one now and you're able to get insurance to even cover it?

    No offense, but how much damage can you really do in two years? What do you do that "beats it up" in that short of a period of time? I've been using the same ZRA for four years and while I would hardly say it looks new it's perfectly presentable for any demographic I encounter.

    Interesting, I never realized tossing an empty frame in and out of a Dodge constituted heavy use. Sounds like you're doing a good job scamming the insurance companies though.

    hmmmmm, how is getting a new chair every 2 years scamming anyone. i trade my cars in every 3 years too.

    anyway take it to pm if u have an issue.
