    We've used the MC6000 daily for the past decade.

    Yes, had one for my mother's use when she visited me. Sold it through this site when she died. Good product.

    Are these typically covered by insurance?

    Not that I'm aware of. Sometimes they are available on Ebay at a lower price.

    Medicare does not cover bathing equipment nor toileting equipment, and many private insurance companies follow Medicare guidelines. If you are eligible for VA or Workers' Comp, they may cover.

    I've been looking at the MC6000 and the tilt version. Is it possible to safely adjust the dump or backrest angle on the MC6000? I'd prefer to save $1k+ by not getting the tilt version, but don't know how comfortable I'd be sitting at an upright angle.

    I just looked at ours. The backrest angle isn't adjustable.

    Thank you for checking. Is the backrest set at 90 degrees?

    It's a 90 degree backrest.

    As best as I can tell, the only adjustable parts on the MC6000 are the chair leg and shower-base leg height, armrest height and foot rest height.
