A common question we're asked: Does Medicare cover my lift chair?

The answer is: sometimes they cover part of it. If the patient meets certain conditions, Medicare may cover the cost of the lift mechanism itself, but not the cost of the rest of the chair. In the state of Michigan, this is approximately $300. In order to qualify, the patient normally has to meet the following conditions:


  •     You aren't able to stand up on your own from a regular chair.
  •     You have severe arthritis in your knee or hips
  •     You are confined to a chair or bed without a lift
  •     You can operate the lift chair by yourself
  •     Once you’re standing, you can walk, even if it's with the help of a mobility aide.
