    Its super hard if not impossible to get a zr approved by medicare. they also said 5 years is no longer the mark that you need a new wheelchair

    Exactly they are useless. I have other insurance from my work and I told them to NOT even use medicare I also told them I'm not going to pay for medicare because they suck so bad and they were so surprised.

    Yah my chair was almost $6,000 so its not cheap

    Without insurance mark up you can basically build 2 chairs for 6k.

    This is before the insurance mark up, this was just straight up parts from Ti Lite website on the order form.
