How can we help you? How is the new Healthcare Law effecting my power wheelchair coverage? 2 out of 3 found this helpful Now, instead of a purchase option, Medicare requires that the power chair is rented over a period of 13 months. Rather than being billed once, seniors will be billed over 13 months for any applicable co-pays and deductibles. Once payment is made in full through Medicare and any beneficiary co-pays and/or deductibles, ownership of the power chair will be transferred to you. Was this helpful?
