Here's a list I found of things not covered.
Non-covered items (partial listing):

Adult diapers
Bathroom safety equipment
Hearing aides
Syringes/needles
Van lifts or ramps
Exercise equipment
Humidifiers/Air Purifiers
Raised toilet seats
Massage devices
Stair lifts
Emergency communicators
Low Vision Aides
Grab bars

But...there is a website for caregivers to get cash back on certain products that will helpm you. Go to the caregiver's marketplace at www.caregiversmarketplace.com

Also, I know that there are a great deal of products covered depending upon your ailment so you really need to check out places like medicarerights.org or medicre.gov.

Probably not. My husband was in the Veterans Hospital and before I left, I asked if he could get an extension for the toilet. They said yes, so I asked if he could also have those bars that you put in the shower for safety. They said no. And they told us where we could buy some. We got a wheel chair and a new walker for free. Is your husband a veteran? Some of these little things that still is a big expense to us, is not given. I don't like that! Try the dollar stores, and the stores that even beat Wal Mart.
