Wheelchair Ramp FAQs: Everything you need to know
A wheelchair ramp makes your house safer and more convenient, and can be essential in helping you remain independent in your own home. Check out our most frequently asked questions about wheelchair ramps:
How much does a wheelchair ramp cost?
There is not a simple answer to this question because the price of a ramp depends on the length, material, and upgrade options. The prices listed below are estimated ranges, but our suggestion is to schedule a free in-home evaluation to get a better idea of how much the ramp you would need would cost.
- Threshold ramps: $35-$140 range for aluminum, $94 - $150 range for rubber
- Portable folding ramps: $99 - $520 range for aluminum, $460 - $1,000 range for lightweight graphite fiber
- Residential modular ramps: Prices depend on the length of the ramp and the angle of slope. See our Residential Modular Aluminum Ramps page for more information and sample ramp pricing.

- Rental options are also available.
Will health insurance policies or Medicare pay for a wheelchair ramp?
Unfortunately, most health insurance policies and Medicare plans will not pay for a wheelchair ramp. A ramp can be considered as a medically necessary piece of equipment, but unfortunately, Medicare does not mark it as an item that would directly treat a medical condition.
What type of wheelchair ramp material is best?
There is not one type of material that is the "best" for ramps, but we often suggest aluminum because of the benefits that it has over wood and concrete. Aluminum wheelchair ramps are least expensive, can be installed within days, and require little-no maintenance. There are also a variety of surface materials to choose from.
What are the ADA requirements for a wheelchair ramp?
According to the ADA, the length of ramp should be based on a 1:12 ratio, meaning for every 1 inch of rise, there should be 1 foot in length of ramp. Lifeway follows the ADA ramp guidelines, but there may be times where a 1:10 ratio is an option if a caregiver or family member will always be assisting a wheelchair user on the ramp.
What types of wheelchair ramps does Lifeway Mobility offer?
