Medicare Billing



If you have coverage and meet the necessary requirements, Medicare will cover the seat lift mechanism within the lift chair which typically is around $300.


How do you file?  You will need 3 things.

  • a CMN (Certificate of Medical Necessity)

  • a Bill of Sale (We will provide to you at the time of purchase a receipt of sale)

  • and a doctor's prescription for a lift chair and your doctor's signature on the CMN.

  • You can download and Print the CMN here.   Click Here

  • We will provide you with a bill of sale after purchase

  •  There are five questions on the CMN.

    1. Does patient have severe arthritis of the hip or knees?

    2. Does patient have a severe neuromuscular disease?

    1. Is the patient completely incapable of standing up from a regular armchair or any chair in his/her home?

    2. Once standing, does the patient have the ability to ambulate (walk or move about)?

    3. Have all appropriate therapeutic modalities to enable the patient to transfer from a chair to a standing position (e.g., medication, physical therapy) been tried and failed? If YES, this is documented in the patient's medical records.

After your doctor has signed the CMN you will then need to mail it with a copy of your prescription for the chair to your Medicare regional claims office.  If you are approved, a reimbursement check will be mailed back to you from Medicare.
