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.
