  1. I AM A VETERAN’S SPOUSE, WILL I BE ABLE TO GET ASSISTANCE IN GETTING A LIFT CHAIR? THE SEAT WOULD NEED TO BE AT LEAST 29inches from arm to arm. Right now my weight is about 365lbs.

    1. Hello Harla! If you are covered by your spouse’s veteran’s benefits I suggest speaking with your primary care physician to see what your insurance will cover. Please let me know if you have any additional questions, I will be happy to help point you in the right direction after that.

      Thank you,

      Amanda

  2. I am a disabled Veteran with prescriptions from my Orthopedic Physician and my Primary Care Physician for a Power Lift Chair. I purchased a PLR-975M chair because the Prosthetics Dept. at the Reno, NV VAMC stated that they do not buy furniture. Can you offer any assistance for me trying to get reimbursed?
    Thank You
