I have a doctor's prescription for me to receive a motorized recliner. I have Mass Health & AARP for my Medicare. Can you help me with this?

michaeljg, what I did was rent a lift-recliner so that my Dad could test drive it, to see if he could use the controls, and that the recliner was a right size. If a recliner is too big, then it become difficult to get in and out even with the lift.

It was rented from a Medicare approved store. Glad I did that, as the first chair brought out stopped working after a couple of weeks, and the store brought out a replacement.

This was self-pay for my Dad.

Mass health will cover certain durable medical equipment with a Prescription and Letter of Medical Necessity Requirements. I am not sure a motorized recliner is considered a durable medical equipment. You would best check with the agency that handles Mass Health.

AT MOST, they may pay for the motor part of the recliner, less your copay. They won't pay for the entire recliner. You're probably better off purchasing one on Craigslist.
