Does Medicare Cover Walkers?

there is a lot of them that are covered by medicare.

i want to know if medicare covers walkers, especially in florida.

>> reporter: actually, medicare does cover walkers.

and you can get them with a prescription.

they have to be prescribed.

the one thing they are most often prescribed for is for people with osteoporosis.

it's a problem across the country in all ages.

it's a problem for a walker or a cane.

people who need a walker or a cane to get around.

>>> next up, the republican candidates are in the race.

but did you know that the democrats are in the race too?

the democratic field is getting huge.

according to the politico poll, jeb bush is at the top of the republican field with 11% over that -- over trump at 10% and rubio at 9%.

the democrats, hillary clinton, is still the clear front-runner, but she is coming under some fire as well.

according to the politico poll, she is at 38%.

bernie sanders is at 18% and vice president joe biden is at 17%.

>>> on this date in 1983, the gender gap, the gender gap, it is a real thing.

it was created in that year.

it was created when women's rights activists were trying to make sure that the equal rights amendment would get passed, but it failed, never got past the senate.

it was a deadline that was set back in the '70s.

that's when the gender gap began.

women started voting democratic because of the issue of equal rights.

this year, as we head into 2016, that gap is still very much in play.

>> it's historic in the sense that you have the potential to have the first woman nominated by a major party.

i don't think that's happened ever before.

but in the end, i think we can get there.

i think it will depend on the democratic voters.

>> i'm a female driver.

i'm a woman driver, you know.

i'll go anywhere, so you can see the difference.

so, actually, i got a ticket yesterday.

>> reporter: the gender gap is something that has been a part of american politics for a long time, especially in the last 30 years.

it's something that has been talked about a lot.

and it's something that can also, depending on who you talk to, i think it depends on who you ask, if it is even real or not.

that's the thing about the gender gap.

it's the idea that women vote differently than men.

there's a lot of debate on this, but it is something that has been around for a long time.

white women in particular have voted differently than white men.

as far as the difference between women and their votes, there are a lot of things that go into it.

education is one.

it has to do with race.

it has to do with income level.

it has to do with age.

that's something that might change as well.

there are a lot of factors that go into the gender gap.

it's something that's been around a long time.

i think it's something that will continue to be around.

it's important to note, though, that the democratic party is not necessarily the party of women.

and it's important that we don't forget that.

i think it's important for us to remember that.

>> we have to go.

i'm so happy you're back on the show.

>>> coming up, the latest on the kim kardashian robbery that happened in paris.

we have the latest for you.

don't go anywhere.
