Medicare does not presently cover stairlift products. Unfortunately, they do not consider stairlifts a “medical necessity”. Until this changes, all we can do is try to point the financially needy in the right direction. Hopefully the following information will assist you.

There are many organizations that provide financial assistance to people in need of medical devices not covered by Medicare or insurance.

You may find assistance by calling the Veteran's Administration on 1-800-827-1000.
