Expensive Medical Equipment
I received a bill from Numotion for my Corpus M3 powerchair, and it was $1200. To say I was shocked was an understatement. A month or so ago, I was told that I could use new casters and, with the age of my battery, a new one as well. I agreed to this, and after waiting for some time, they finally scheduled an appointment for me, and 30 minutes later, I signed a paper and was on my way. Unfortunately, yesterday I received a huge bill stating that insurance won’t cover my tired and battery. I have mixed feelings, but right now, I worry about the future and how I will afford a disabled lifestyle.
Do you worry about the financial burden of liability and medical devices? How do you prepare for such unexpected investments and costs? Have you borrowed or looked on Facebook for used medical equipment? Do you prefer to buy it yourself online instead of waiting and going through insurance?
