About This Quiz

While this quiz can provide a quick way to determine Lift Chair Reimbursement eligibility, it is important to note that Medicare does not reimburse the full cost of a lift chair. Instead, they only cover the lifting mechanism of the chair, which usually costs between $250 and $300. Visit our Lift Chair Medicare Page to learn why only the lifting mechanism is covered and more about Medicare Lift Chairs

What is a Lift Chair

A lift chair is a device used to make it easier to stand and sit. The base of the chair contains a strong lift system that raises the chair, and its occupant, slowly into the air. When the chair has been completely raised, it is possible to exit the chair in a safe standing position.
