I swear I am going to take a 4 hour drive and shove my old power chair up my insurance companies, well you fill in the word. I have waited 3 months, both doctors and scooter place did all required paperwork, and insurance still denied me a new chair!!!! Their excuse is that since I don't use any walking device to walk 6 foot that I don't need a chair. They didn't take the time to read my paperwork and find that I can not use ANY walking device due to severe RA in wrist, elbows, and hands. Also have bursitis in wrist, elbows, and shoulders. They I walk 6 feet is to lean against a wall and hope I don't fall down even with someone beside me. How do I get it through their heads that I need a new chair??? My old one is on its last gasp, they didn't pay for it. I guess I will have to slither across the room pretty soon. They state that since I am not bed bound yet, I do not qualify. AARRGGHHHHHHH!!!! OK, done ranting for now.
