We are often asked if Medicare will pay for a lift chair. The short answer is rarely. And, when if does pay it is only a small amount which equals a small amount of money compared to the actual purchase price of a quality Reclining Lift Chair. Here are the general Medicare rules.
Medicare only covers the seat-lift mechanism, but not the actual chair/furniture portion itself. The reimbursement amount is between $250-$300 depending on where you live IF all the criteria is met. Also, there is a yearly deductable fopr Medicare Part B that you pay out of packet before any benefit is paid.
A lift chair is considered medically necessary if all of the following coverage criteria are met:
Unfortunately, few qualify and the time and effort spent is not in proportion to the amount received, assuming you receive anything.
