Does Medicare Cover Shower Chairs?
This article was updated on: 10/26/2015
Original Medicare, Part A and Part B, doesn’t consider a shower chair to be durable medical equipment. Items primarily used for self-help, convenience, or personal comfort do not fit into Medicare’s definition of medically necessary equipment. So a shower chair doesn’t qualify and would not be covered by Original Medicare.
If you’re considering a Medicare plan that could offer coverage beyond Original Medicare, you may want to compare your Medicare plan options. I can help you with this process.
