Medicare Coverage Criteria:
Medicare pays for walkers with our without wheels if a patient has:
-a mobility limitation that significantly impairs his/her ability to participate in one or more mobility-related activities of daily living in the home;
-the patient is able to safely use the walker and
-the functional mobility deficit can be sufficiently resolved with use of a walker.
 
A heavy duty walker is covered for patients who meet coverage criteria for a standard walker and who weight more than 300 pounds
Medicare ppays for Rollators up to $130 (keep in mind that medicare pays 80% of allowable, 20% must be paid by patient or secondary payer). The difference between the cost of the Rollator and Medicare paid amount is patient's responsibility. Please note that if you have received a regular walker from medicare and now need a rollator, Medicare will not pay for it because it will be considered same or similar equipment and change in condition will not justify the new equipment.
 
Required Documentation: Prescription
An order for the walker which is signed and dated by the treating physician must be kept on file by the supplier. The medical records must contain information which supports the medical necessity of the item ordered.
 
If a rollator is ordered, the usual out of pocket expense does not exceed $40
