Yes, health insurance companies do pay for electric wheelchairs. All insurance policies should state if they will or will not cover wheelchairs. Check with your insurance company or health care provider if your policy will pay for an electric wheelchair. Please note, the process may take up to 9 months due to large amount of paperwork and doctor visits needed to get approved.
Make sure to present all of your documentation and a valid case when requesting for wheelchair coverage with your insurance company or healthcare provider. This will help you save a great deal of time. Doctors rely on a few basic rules to judge whether they should recommend a wheelchair or not. Your doctor will have the final say in recommending the coverage for your wheelchair.
