Grandma will be coming to live with me soon. I need to buy her a wheelchair and bathroom safety items. Will insurance cover any of these costs, particularly the wheelchair?
The wheelchair will probably be around $200 out-of-pocket. She only needs it so we can get her in and out of the house. It would also come in handy to get her to go places like the grocery store as she dislikes walking and is afraid of falling. She doesn't need it at the doctor's office. She always uses a walker.
I figure the grand total of everything she'll need will come to around $541 + tax.
I know nothing about her insurance and neither does she. Her son (my uncle) is in charge of that. I just thought I'd check things out before talking to him about it.
