Lift Chair Options for Seniors Covered by Medicare

As people age, it becomes more difficult to do simple things that were once taken for granted, such as getting out of a chair. A power lift chair, on the other hand, can be an excellent investment for seniors who value their independence and want to do as much on their own as possible.

If you have Medicare Coverage and believe you would benefit from a lift chair recliner, there is some important information you should be aware of. The lift chair or seat-lift chair’s motorized lift mechanism is a Medicare-covered item. If you qualify, Medicare may cover up to 80% of the approved amount for the seat lift mechanism, but you must also purchase your lift chair from a Medicare-enrolled equipment supplier.

Choosing the right lift chair can be difficult, so here’s a breakdown of what these chairs can offer and what to look for when purchasing one. Take a look at these superb Lift Chairs for Seniors that come with coverage and get yourself mobile again.
