Need Motorized Scooter Info

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Went for an appointment to my local VAMC today for an appointment to see if I was eligible for a motorized scooter. The guy in charge said that "the rules" stated that he could not give out scooters unless there was a loss of one or more limbs or unless I had heart and / or lung issues.

I was referred to the rehab dept by my PCP, Psych & local social worker who all said with my pain and mobility issues I should be able to get one. Needless to say, I will have to appeal his initial decision.

I was wondering if anyone knew where I could find these "rules" that state this. Everything I've read so far doesn't contain any specific qualifications for receiving a scooter. 5.gif

Am just wondering if he's blowing smoke up my butt. 6.gif

I'd like to get the regs pertaining to this and go over them myself.
