Wow--I heard from our insurance company today and I WILL be getting a power wheelchair--maybe as early as tomorrow! Four months in the making, then all of a sudden--here it will be!


The final place where all the paperwork and the decision went was to a nurse for final determination on my need. I knew in advance this was going to happen, so I sent the paper I'd written which detailed everything I could think of that might apply to the decision. I wanted them to have ALL the facts!

The nurse in the final stage of things called today and told me TWICE how helpful my paper was to her to know the situation! I guess they usually don't have any extra information and don't always have a lot to base their decisions on. That just goes to show us that it is not pushy to send more than they ask for if it will help them make a valid decision.

We're consumer advocates every minute! I hope this kind of "aggression" pays off for you too!

It's here!
by: Jane D.

Well, the chair came right on April 10! It's beautiful and super cool! I was sleepy when the lady came, and she was here an hour, but she loaded me up with books and information.

It does indeed turn around right in the same area! BECAUSE IT'S REAR WHEEL DRIVE, THERE IS A LITTLE TO GET USED TO. I will definitely need to practice, but it will be a lot of fun, and it is very, very convenient.

Of course we had to rearrange the house just a bit to make everywhere available. It worked out great and I am very pleased with the new addition. Hip Hip Hooray! Now to name my new friend. Any suggestions?

Success!
by: Akrista

Great job! I knew you could do it. I am so happy for you. That's what it takes, basically, giving them what they want. In your case, (and anyone dealing with insurance and social security, etc...) more than they want.

Can't wait to see your NEW shiny electric wheels! Enjoy them, you deserve it!
