Billing Questions
How much will Medicare pay for Medical Equipment?

How does Medical Arts file Lift Chair claims to my Medicare Insurance?

Medical Arts collects the full amount of the Seat Lift Chair you have chosen to purchase upfront. We then obtain a Seat Lift Chair CMN form and Medical Records from your physician to verify you do qualify for reimbursement and for Medicare Billing. Once obtained, the Seat Lift Chair can be delivered to your residence. The claim is filed to Medicare as Non-Assigned, which lets Medicare know that you paid for the Seat Lift Chair upfront and the 80% reimbursement needs to be sent directly to the Medicare Beneficiary.

*This process is done because Medicare does not reimburse the full cost of the Seat Lift Chair.  They only allow reimbursement on the lift mechanism itself and not the furniture portion of the chair.*
