Where will your journeys take you?

Primary Indoor Use

Examine the floor transition area to every interior doorway in your home to ensure the mobility scooter can climb the threshold. Checking the threshold area ensures the mobility scooter does not get hung up and can easily move from room to room. You may want to consider adding an ADA rubber or aluminum threshold ramp to make the transition from one room to the next smoother.

Check the doorway widths the mobility scooter will need to fit through easily. This includes but is not limited to accessibility to your kitchen, bathroom and bedroom.

Checking the height of flooring such as carpet or tall thresholds to ensure your mobility scooter can drive over, allowing you easy access to each room.

Check for any obstacles throughout the house such as but not limited to, cords, furniture, etc. These obstacles may need to be moved so that you can use your mobility scooter safely in your home.

Indoor and Outdoor Use

Follow the recommended list above for primary indoor mobility scooter use.

Closely examine all the transitions leading into and outside your house to guarantee your mobility scooter can climb thresholds and other flooring, allowing the mobility scooter to pass effortlessly from room to room. You may want to consider adding an ADA rubber or aluminum threshold ramp to make the transition from one room to the next smoother, especially for steps, porches and other thresholds in and out of the house.

Examine the terrain outside your home. Make sure there aren’t any obstacles such as gravel, grass, loose dirt and soft ground where your mobility scooter could get stuck.

How far are your journeys? - I’m not sure - Help me decide.

Short trips around my neighborhood

If you’re planning to use your power chair in your home or for short trips around your neighborhood, any Pride Mobility Jazzy Power Chair will fit your need.

Local shopping and exploring the city

Are you planning to take your Jazzy Power Chair out for the day to shop, explore the city or just have fun with friends and family? You may want to consider a unit with a longer per-charge range or chose a unit that allows you to purchase an additional battery pack to take with you.

Where will your journeys take place? – Not sure. How do I determine?

I love to travel! Portability is important.

Larger power chairs might be a bit more difficult to bring on your trips since they do not disassemble or fold, making it difficult to travel with while on vacations, visiting loved ones, or simply going out for the day. If traveling is your lifestyle, you might want to consider a unit that disassembles or folds. A few of the Pride Mobility power chairs disassemble into four or five pieces for traveling and each unit can be easily stored in the trunk of a vehicle.

No, I won’t need to take apart my device.

If you do not plan on disassembling your power chair to travel, please make sure to factor in a secondary mobility product for travelling or make sure your power chair is transportable via a vehicle lift or ramp.

Let’s discuss payment the method - Not sure. Give me some options.

I will be paying for my product out of pocket, 100%.

I have Insurance or Medicare

Are you planning on filing for Medicare or insurance to determine if a mobility scooter is right for you? Follow the steps below to see if you qualify.

Visit with your Treating Practitioner for a Face-to-Face Examination

During your exam, your treating practitioner must first consider the options of a cane, walker, or manual wheelchair before considering a scooter or power wheelchair. If your treating practitioner feels your mobility needs must be resolved with a scooter or power wheelchair, this must be supported in your medical records and a prescription can be written. A physical therapist or occupational therapist may also conduct an additional assessment if your treating practitioner deems it necessary.

Submission of Prescription & Medical Records

Have your treating practitioner fax or mail the written prescription and medical records to your mobility supplier. The mobility supplier must receive the written prescription and supporting documentation (medical records) withing 6 months from the date of your face-to-face examination. Once received, the mobility supplier will work with you and your treating practitioner to determine the appropriate power wheelchair model for your needs. Your mobility supplier will need to submit all the information to Medicare for prior approval.

Home Assessment

Your mobility supplier will conduct a home assessment to ensure that you have adequate access and maneuverability space to maneuver a power wheelchair within your home. This may be completed prior to, or at the time your power mobility device is delivered. It is critical to determine if your home environment will support the use of a power wheelchair in helping you perform activities of daily living such as toileting, grooming, bathing, dressing, and eating.

Order and Delivery of your Power Chair

Your mobility supplier orders the power mobility device prescribed by your treating practitioner, delivers it to your home and instructs you on how to operate it.
