Resources for Mobility Product Coverage

We understand that while necessary, medical devices aren’t always budget friendly. However, there are ways you can purchase or get a mobility product without having to break the bank.

Buying a Mobility Device Through Insurance

Sometimes private insurance companies cover a mobility product if you qualify. If you are covered under an insurance policy, we recommend reaching out to your insurance provider directly for more information about what is covered. You can check their website or your insurance card, if applicable, for contact information.

Buying a Mobility Device Through Medicare

Medicare may pay for an electric scooter or motorized wheelchair if deemed medically necessary in the home. To qualify, there are several steps that need to be completed. This involves working with your physician and finding a provider that works with Medicare. Click to learn more about Medicare coverage for a power mobility device.

Buying a Mobility Device Through Medicaid

Medicaid is the largest government program designed to provide medical and health-related services to people with low incomes. The patient must meet eligibility and coverage requirements in order to be considered for Medicaid coverage of medical services. To qualify for Medicaid, an individual must meet income and resource limits, and be medically needy or fall into an eligibility category specified by your state. For more information on how to apply, read our article about funding through Medicaid.

Getting a Mobility Device Through the VA

If you are a disabled veteran, there is another option available. The Department of Veterans Affairs offers services leading to more independence in daily living to eligible service-connected disabled veterans. The federal VA website has information on VA programs, veteran’s benefits, VA facilities worldwide and more. We recommend contacting your local VA benefits counselor to determine the veterans benefits you are eligible for. We’ve compiled a list of Veterans Affairs Departments by state that you can reference.

Buying a Mobility Device Through CareCredit

More than hundreds of Pride dealers participate with CareCredit. CareCredit is a payment plan based on your budget, allowing you to pay for medical equipment and services over time. Upon credit approval, there are also special promotional financing options available. Visit for more information or contact your dealer to find out how you can fill out an application.

Getting a Mobility Device Through Non-profits

Not for-profit organizations come in all shapes and sizes. There are organizations for veterans, religious groups and non-profits specific to medical conditions. Many of these organizations happily accept mobility scooter and electric wheelchair donations. In accepting these donations, they can pay it forward and help those in need of a power mobility device. If you need a mobility device but can’t find the finances to fund one, you can reach out to a non-profit organization and see if they can assist.
