    Equipment providers?

    United seating & Mobility is now Numotion. Who else is available that does this same thing of getting chairs to folks..? They completely cut Invacare chairs out of their product supply ordering & that's the chair I like & use.. Has anone had similar issues of having to change chair vendors or whatnot.?

    Have you tried a local mobility shop? If you're not sure of one, build a chair on the brands website and there's usually a spot the reads find a local dealer. Once you determine the local dealers, reach out to the to see if they accept your insurance.

    Who is requiring you to use those DME vendors? Medicaid? Private insurance? Workers Comp? You need to take it up with them.

    If you are having problems obtaining your Invacare chair call Invacare at 800 333 6900.

    If you are not successful I have a corp contact that may prove useful, let me know.

    Medicaid pays for your chair the way you explain it, so contact your Medicaid contact. Ask them why "you" cannot get the chair you want.

    For an FYI, They are operating on an Order of Consent from the FEDs. But they are in operation and able to supply you a chair equipped with the devices they supply, from their approved current line of chairs. But Medicaid will only pay for a chair of their choice. But, again it sounds like your vendor has dropped the Invacare line, if there is a problem with the contracted supplier, you will need to get that cleared up, with Medicaid yourself.

    Apologies to keep bending you bout this here Bob. I did contact my Medacaid agent & she was able to view the $$sum I was approved for.
    I brought to a head all these stipulates, she wasn't really aware all the Beuracatic bull w/ the vendors, yet looked into it & later advised I hold off on pursuing since I had a semi hefty $$ service call recently.....
    I just wanted to re-iterate some from your post so when I return to this at years end...

    "Medicaid pays for your chair the way you explain it, But Medicaid will only pay for a chair of THEIR choice"???

    So if I explain I Need/Want Invacare, & they've are in a compliant working order..your saying it's still ultimately Medacaids choice & can deny me??
    Sorry just confusing post u made..
