Will insurance, including Medicare, cover the Hoveround?

According to the official company, they note that you must be able to provide medical documentation from your patient charts which note your continued use and the medical need for the equipment.  If you do decide to use your Medicare benefits, then the company will not be able to provide service until documentation is received from your doctors but have the option to pay out of pocket for the said repairs if you so choose.  They also note that you must provide any new documentation about the continued use every 12 months.

In conclusion, in order to be approved, you must meet the Medicare guidelines, which includes a physician’s order that contains specific elements, which must be received within 45 days after the order, and a face-to-face mobility examination.  9 out of 10 customers will meet the criteria as long as you have met your deductibles.
