Q – Does insurance cover the expense of a stair lift?
A – Unfortunately, at this time most insurance companies will not cover the cost of a stair lift since it is not deemed Durable Medical Equipment. However, the K Plan of Medicaid does cover the expense. We also work closely with the Department of Veterans Affairs and they offer a program that covers the cost of a stair lift as well.
