If you are taking your mobility device via
airline please remember a few this before you go.
Remove the key from your scooter prior to
boarding the aircraft.
Leaving your key in the ignition of your scooter can
lead to a few problems when you get to your
destination. If the scooter power is left on for the
duration of the flight there is a good possibility
your batteries will be low or discharged when you
get to your destination. Also by leaving you key in
the ignition there is a higher risk of the key being
lost or even broken in the ignition.
Check your batteries and charger.
Check when was the last time you changed your
batteries, extreme heat and cold can effect the
condition of your batteries and speed up any
weakness your batteries may have. If possible have a
local dealer perform a load test on your batteries
before you go.
Always put your charger in to your checked
baggage or carry on luggage so you know its safe and
not in the basket or back pocket of the seat of the
scooter as its more likely to be lost, damaged or
miss placed while being stowed in the plane. Check
your charger is functioning correctly the night
before you leave and there is no damage to the
charger or wiring.
- a few facts
Insurance - First
check with your insurance company that DME equipment
is covered by your medical insurance policy. If you
are eligible you will then need
a prescription from your doctor plus a letter from
your insurance company stating what medical benefits
are available to you for a DME (Durable Medical
Equipment), or commonly called mobility scooters and
power wheelchairs. Once you have this in place
arrange a visit to our store so we can best asses
and assist you with regards to which unit would be
best for for medical and everyday needs. Once you
are happy with choice you would need to purchase the
unit and claim remittance back from your medical
insurance company by providing a paid receipt of
your purchase any any other supporting documents
required by your insurance company.
Medicare - as of writing
this (late 2016), Medicare will not cover any
mobility scooter or power wheelchair. Medicare
Advantage coverage varies. If your Medicare
Advantage coverage excepts DMA equipment you will
need to find a DMA provider who is authorized to
except Medicare. If you have a private insurance
supporting your Medicare insurance
and wish to get a Mobility Scooter rather than a
Powered Wheelchair there is a great possibility
Medicare will deny their portion of the percentage
of coverage which then has to be funded by the
individual. This percentage is governed by how much
your private insurance will to cover e.g. If your
Private insurance was set at 80% your Medicare
coverage would be 20%
If Medicare deny the request for a
DMA mobility scooter you would have to pick up the

equipment or repairs)
