Chad has a Permobil C500 and Jay Stimulite cushion that was purchased by his BCBS insurance through his employer about 6 years ago. In the meantime, he retired due to medical disability. Thus, in Aug of last year, he rolled over to Medicare and now BCBS is his secondary insurance. He needs a new cushion for his wheelchair. I have heard that if Medicare did not purchase the chair (which they did not, BCBS did, 6 years ago), that they will not pay for any repairs to the chair. Is this true? Will we be able to purchase a cushion for his chair through Medicare?
