With a standard trackmaster wheelchair costing $16,000 to $18,000, we understand that it can be difficult to pay for upfront and without assistance. Unfortunately, Medicare and Medicade will not cover the cost of a motorized wheelchair or track chair. However, there are other ways that you can receive assistance in financing a chair.
How can I receive help with paying for my track chair?
Insurance coverage – Although Medicare and Medicade do not cover the cost of a standard track chair or a motorized wheelchair with trackmaster customs, many insurance companies will. If you can provide a letter of medical necessity written by a doctor, or a workman’s compensation form, most state and private insurance will grant partial or full coverage of your track chair. In addition, programs such as Vocational Rehabilitation will typically also assist in financing of your chair.
Apply for a loan – Though various venders, suppliers, and banks, we are able to offer loans as a form of assistance. Just like a car loan, you will be able to pay your loan off in smaller payments over time.
Lease a track chair – As of recently, we are offering customers the opportunity to lease a trackmaster wheelchair. For 20% off payment, you are eligible to lease the balance of the machine for a period of time. After that time is up, you pay a small reclamation fee, or you can buy the chair for a small fee if you are interested. This option is very beneficial to those who have not built up their credit or don’t have enough job experience to be approved for a loan, such as young veterans. This program gives our customers the option to use the chair for a while at a lower cost and then buy it for a small fee if they would like.
How to get started with financing your track chair
We recommend that our customers reach out to their insurance company to discuss possible plans for coverage. You may also need to contact your doctor or employer for the paperwork necessary to give to your provider. If your insurance does not cover the cost of your standard track chair or motorized wheelchair with trackmaster customs, we may be able to help with assistance.
