I started the process of getting an electric wheelchair in December. A physical therapist, my doctor and a wheelchair vendor need to work together in a thirty-day window to submit their paperwork to Medicaid to approve the chair. The physical therapist didn’t do the paperwork and the wheelchair representative never came to measure me for a seat. I was promised a new electric wheelchair in four months. Of course, I didn’t believe it. I really wanted to avoid this hassle, but I need an electric wheelchair to shop and go out. Do I really need an electric wheelchair? No. I need an electric wheelchair to be mobile. Just give me a computer to write and I will be happy.
