Savvy Senior: Does Medicare cover mobility scooters or wheelchairs?
November 15, 2021
Dear Savvy Senior,
I have arthritis in my hips and knees and have a difficult time getting around anymore. What do I need to do to get a Medicare-covered electric-powered scooter or wheelchair?
Need a Ride
If you’re enrolled in original Medicare, getting an electric-powered mobility scooter or wheelchair that’s covered by Medicare starts with a visit to your doctor’s office.
