Does Medicare Cover Electric Scooters?

A: Yes, Medicare covers the purchase of a wheelchair or handicap scooter. And, if you have Medicare, you will pay only $20 for a prescription to purchase a scooter. But, be sure to check with your specific insurance company or Medicare plan to make sure you will not be charged a co-pay for the scooter. Medicare also covers the cost of repairs for the scooter, as well as the cost of batteries.

Q: What is the best size scooter to buy?

A: The best size scooter to purchase will really depend on your body size as well as the weight of the rider.

The larger the rider, the larger the scooter you will need.

And, if you are planning to travel with the scooter, a larger, wide wheel, heavy duty scooter will be more stable than a smaller lighter weight scooter.

With that in mind, the largest scooters are often 3 wheel scooters, and have a turning radius of about 24 inches.
