Does Medicare pay walkers?
Medicare generally covers walkers as part of “durable medical equipment.” To get full coverage, you may need a Medicare Supplement plan. A walker may be essential for you if you struggle to walk without support.
What is a 2 wheeled walker?
A two wheel rolling walker is defined as a walking aid with two front wheels and no rear wheels. These walkers are geared toward users who have more limited mobility and can walk slowly.
Why do some walkers only have 2 wheels?
TIPS FOR CHOOSING THE CORRECT WALKER
Recommend a two-wheeled (rolling) walker for patients who have an unstable gait but do not need to bear a substantial amount of weight on the walker. Recommend a four-wheeled (Rollator) walker for patients who need a walker only for balance but not for weight bearing.
