    Brianm, dude, I don't know what to say other than: You've got some crap insurance. I can't believe, that after 10 years, they would have the justification for scrutinizing, delaying, denying or otherwise failing to pay for a new chair, on your behalf. Filing appeals and grievances are a pain in the ass and more work for your doctors (hopefully you have a medical advocate on your side!) and I'm sorry, and I hope it turns around ASAP. -Dale

    I do not. The dealer I was working with to get a chair said the same as you, that medicare sets the standards for the worst and even they would have purchased the chair in this situation.

    Thanks Dale. I have decided to see if I can get state assistance before pursuing farther with the insurance company, hoping it would be the faster route. I figured the next route to try with insurance was see a specialist, like a tharapist and have them write up a detailed reason of why the need for a chair greater than a K0001.

    Anyway, I am hope to know where I stand with the state next week.

    Do you really think this? I'm surprised.

    I needed a new chair badly but had to make do for the past two years knowing 5yrs is the limit, or I buy out of pocket. Being that I'm single and paying a mortgage on a condo and trying to stuff some cash into my retirement, I didn't have extra to spare on a chair - though the thought of buying from sportaid crossed my mind several times!

    I can't purport to know people well enough to know how they use their chairs. I see active lives here ... ?
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    Wow. Just...wow. I guess if the last chair they bought you was K0001 coded then I can see their point in at least wanting to know what changed, but...wow. That's hard core risk management.
