Pride Mobility Products Corp. sells Medicare-approved lift chairs through local medical equipment retailers and online shops when a doctor prescribes it and with prior approval before purchase. Other approved lift chair manufacturers include Comfort Lift and Golden Technologies.
Individuals with Medicare part B are covered when buying durable medical equipment for the home. The individual pays 20 percent of the Medicare-approved amounts and any applicable deductible. Some retailers require payment but send all the purchaser's information in to Medicare for direct reimbursement as a matter of convenience. Medicare-approved lift chairs include models that feature two, three and infinite positions, and those who need them can also choose zero gravity models.
