Basically everybody who is looking at purchasing a lift recliner wants to know if they can be fully or at least partially reimbursed for their purchase. Here you will learn what you need to know and how Medicare can help pay for your lift chair.

- A supervising physician must have exhausted all other treatment options, such as physical therapy.
- You must be unable to stand up or sit down normally in any given chair in your house.
- Once standing, you must also be able to walk.
- The use of your lift chair must be prescribed by a doctor to improve, or slow the deterioration of your existing medical condition.
To Receive your Medicare reimbursement you will need:
