You May Be Covered Up To 100%
Depending on your insurance plan you could be covered up to 100%! We work with ALL major insurance providers and specialty insurers including:
Most Employee (Group) and Individual (Personal) Health Insurance Plans provide coverage for durable medical equipment such as electric wheelchairs. Durable medical equipment coverage is usually part of the extended health benefits coverage, which also covers things like prescription drugs, vision care, hospital services and more.
While insurance coverage for durable medical equipment varies, a TYPICAL plan offers 80% to 100% coverage for durable medical equipment up to a maximum of roughly $5,000 to $10,000 per year. Plans will vary.

Will my Provincial Healthcare cover the cost of a Travel Buggy?
Unfortunately not. Provincial healthcare does NOT cover the cost of durable medical equipment. There are exceptions to this, however, especially if a Canadian is enrolled in some sort of specialty program (e.g. social assistance, AISH etc.).
Is Government assistance (ADP, AADL etc.) available?
Unfortunately not. Government mobility device programs (such as ADP) cover only a select few mobility devices, all of which are significantly more expensive. That said, many insurance plans will cover our products.
