    Wow. That's amazing incompetence. They should cover either way though as paras need to take it easy on their shoulders anyway.

    Does Medicare ever cover Smart Drive? Even for quads?

    They're pretty strict about their in the house and outside of the bathroom deal, I can't see them covering it, but maybe I'm wrong.

    Report him/her to the state medical board. If they can't tell a quad from a para, they shouldn't be practicing medicine. Hope they aren't a proctologist or gynecologist and get the exam mixed up.

    Regardless, I can't understand why they think paras don't need help. What if you'd asked for a full power chair (mis labeled as a para)?
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

    Cause para's got it friggin easy man, that's why.

    if you made the effort to get there, then at least you deserve an MD with a few brain cells.
    Good luck.
