First Wheelchair Eval and updated mri
I've been needing mobility aids for so long. I'm so excited that on friday I'm going for my firsr wheelchair evaluation. I have no idea what to expect. I've been researching chairs for almost a year and i have a lot of ideas of what I want.
Any advice for getting my first chair? I'm so worried that my insurance won't pay for the one I want. What has been your experiences with insurance?
I'm trying not to get too excited in case my insurance dosent work out. After my shoulder surgery i met my deductible and my out of pocket max. I also lost my job and did not qualify for unemployment. If my insurance dosent cover my chair I can't get it.
I also finally got my updated mri and it was sent to the nuero yesterday. I havent had a dr in years and when I finally found one who treats sb in adults I couldn't get an appointment without an mri and of course my insurance didn't cover an mri until after the deductible.
Things are finally starting to move. I'm so excited. I'm in some of the worst back/nerve pain I've ever had this week. Just can't get relief. Hoping and praying all works out.
lipomyelomeningocele, tethered cord, nerve damage began as a young adult, still have lots to learn about living with SB!
