Home » Do I Qualify? » Walker
 Walkers may be covered if:

  • The beneficiary has a mobility limitation that significantly impairs his/her abilities to participate in one or more Mobility Related Activities of Daily Living (MRADL’s) in the home (toileting, feeing, dressing, grooming and bathing). A mobility limitation is one that prevents one from accomplishing MRADLs, or causes a heightened risk of illness/injury or death secondary to the attempts to participate in MRADLs, or prevents one from completing MRADLs within a reasonable time frame. In addition, equipment may be covered if other conditions limit the ability to participate in MRADLs (e.g., impaired cognition or vision).

  • The beneficiary/caregiver is able to use a walker safely.

  • Documentation: Medical history notes documenting the coverage criteria.
