  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

    1. Hi Frederick! Thank you for reaching out to us. We recommend speaking with your insurance carrier about funding options and reimbursement. Be sure to check with your primary and if applicable secondary insurance.

    2. The people in your Reno VA evident;y have no clue what a power lift chair is.. I strongly suggest you do two things, First contact your Patient Advocate at the VA and see if they can educate the ones who declined you. Second Contact the Regional VA rep and I suggest contacting the VFW Regional rep at the same time. That get folks educated in a hurry.

    1. Hi Jerry! We suggest speaking directly with your primary healthcare physician and mentioning to them that you are interested in exploring mobility options. At the VA there are typically seating and mobility specialists you can work with.
