Does Medicare Cover A Bathroom Safety Product?

No, Medicare does not cover any bathroom related products such as transfer benches, shower chairs, raised toilet seats, grab bars and any other products for bath safety. Manual wheelchairs are covered as "capped rental item" which means that purchase of a manual wheelchair is not covered. Commode wheelchairs or shower wheelchairs are not covered.

Other equipment not covered by Medicare includes adaptive daily living aids such as reachers, sock-aids, utensils... anythings not on the coverage list. For more detailed information regarding coverage, call 1-800-MEDICARE.
