I called my insurance and they referred me to a rehab company. This guy was so much nicer, more pleasant to deal with and actually took the time to ask questions about what I needed and explained to me why he was recommending both a motorized wheelchair and a scooter. He came to my home, evaluated my home to accomodate those things, and then made his recommendations. He submitted for approval to my insurance on Friday and by yesterday afternoon , had it approved. If you have to face mobility issues, find out if your insurance will refer you to a rehab company instead of a medical supply place because there is a world of difference in how you are treated and how they fit the chair or scooter to you, not you to the chair or scooter....
Anyway, they should be here in a week or two, depending on how fast the company who makes the wheelchair gets the chair to him. Oh, and the best part, is that they are giving me the scooter for nothing. It's nice , especially since my insurance is paying 100% for the chair, and it's a really expensive one.
Here are links in case anyone is interested.
