Thread: Wheelchair pool lift

    Wheelchair pool lift

    I was curious if anyone has gotten one of the wheelchair lifts (like the ones at the hotels) covered by insurance?

    Any help is appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Joanie

    Certainly not Medicare or Medicaid, which also usually sets the bar for most private insurances. The only funding agency i have seen purchase these for home use are Worker's Comp and the Veteran's Health Administration (VA).

    The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.

    I know of a guy who got his insurance to cover a hot tub. But they wouldn’t cover the lift to get him into it.
    T3 complete since Sept 2015.
