POWER MOBILITY CHAIRS
The minimum criteria for qualification for a power wheelchair are as follows, but not limited to:
A. The beneficiary has a mobility limitation that significantly impairs his/her ability to participate in one or more mobility-related activities of daily living (MRADLs) such as toileting, feeding, dressing, grooming, and bathing in customary locations in the home. A mobility limitation is one that:
- Prevents the beneficiary from accomplishing an MRADL entirely, or
- Places the beneficiary at reasonably determined heightened risk of morbidity or mortality secondary to the attempts to perform an MRADL; or
- Prevents the beneficiary from completing an MRADL within a reasonable time frame.
B. The beneficiary’s mobility limitation cannot be sufficiently resolved by the use of an appropriately fitted cane or walker.
C. The beneficiary’s home provides adequate access between rooms, maneuvering space, and surfaces for use of the manual or power wheelchair that is provided.
D. Use of a wheelchair will significantly improve the beneficiary’s ability to participate in MRADLs and the beneficiary will use it on a regular basis in the home.
E. The beneficiary has not expressed an unwillingness to use the wheelchair that is provided in the home.
F. The beneficiary has insufficient upper extremity function and other physical and mental capabilities needed to safely self-propel a manual wheelchair. Limitations of strength, endurance, range of motion, or coordination, presence of pain, or deformity or absence of one or both upper extremities are relevant to the assessment of upper extremity function.
