Does Insurance or Government Funding Pay for Mobility Scooters?
Mobility scooters are powerful pieces of medical equipment that do a lot for the occupant. So, it stands to reason that in some cases their price tag will be relatively high.
But not to worry! In many cases, your insurance will cover much of the cost. In addition, Canadian government funding and insurance options can cover about 80% of the cost with Durable Medical Equipment (DME) coverage if you meet certain conditions, including:
You must need the scooter because your mobility is affected by a health condition.
Your doctor must provide a written confirmation that you need a mobility scooter.
You must be capable of using the scooter or there must be someone present at all times to provide assistance.
There are more requirements, so be sure that you meet all of them. If you’re in need of more assistance, do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
Add the Right Mobility Scooter to Your Shopping Cart
Here are some features and benefits of using a mobility scooter, but remember that these details vary from model to model. Remember to carefully read the specifications of each scooter since they vary from model to model:
Batteries: A single charge can help you drive between 20 and 40 miles. The weight of the machine, batteries, and occupant will affect the driving range.
Turning Radius:This is the smallest circular turn the scooter can make. Portable models can have a turning radius of 32” whereas our heavier models can have one of 59”.
Ground Clearance: Also called ride height, this is the space between the base of the tire and the undercarriage. Scooters normally have a high ground clearance to prevent damage to the frame, such as 4”.
Storage: For the occupant’s convenience, scooters offer at least one storage space, such as a basket.
Customization: Many of our models, including the Eclipse Bigfoot, Trailmaster Inceptor and Pathmaster Spyder series come in a different colours, so you can drive around in your preferred style.
Speed: Our available models can achieve a speed between 6 mph and 11 mph. This can vary depending on the weight that is added on your mobility scooter.
Weight Capacity: Designed to chauffeur you and your essentials around, our mobility scooter models have a weight capacity that generally range from 274 lbs to 500 lbs.
