For many, the cost of something determines whether or not they purchase the item. So what is the cost of a TrackMaster wheelchair? The answer depends on what kind of chair you wish to purchase. Additionally, what you’ll have to pay out of pocket depends on your insurance, as well as your mobility situation.
There are three purchasing options for a TrackMaster chair:
- Power Package: This includes everything that makes the chair move, such as the motor, but does not include the actual chair. This costs $14,000 to $15,000.
- Standard Chair + Power Package: This option includes the power package and the standard chair. It costs between $16,000 and $18,000.
- Custom Chair: Purchasing a custom TrackMaster wheelchair allows you to design and personalize your chair to fit your specific needs. Typically, custom wheelchair costs start around $20k.

We understand that it is not realistic for many individuals to pay these rates upfront and without assistance. Although programs such as Medicade and Medicare will not cover costs of a TrackMaster wheelchair, your insurance might. If a letter of medical necessity written by a doctor or a workman’s compensation form is provided, most state and private insurance companies will grant partial or full coverage of your track chair. Vocational Rehabilitation will typically also assist in financing of your chair if it is needed for mobility.
Additionally, we are able to offer loans to our customers. If you are approved for a loan, you will be able to pay it off overtime, just like a car loan. We also offer the option to lease a track chair. This payment method allows you to lease the chair for a period of time with a discounted cost of 20% off the listed price. After that period is over, you pay a small reclamation fee, or you can buy the chair for an additional fee if you are interested.
Our goal at TrackMaster is to make sure the cost does not prevent our customers from having access to mobility. Our loan and leasing options are available to help with the financial aspect of using a standard track chair or a custom TrackMaster wheelchair. We also encourage our customers to reach out to their insurance providers about additional assistance.
