A Walker or walking frame is a tool for disabled or frail people, who need additional support to maintain balance or stability while walking, most commonly due to age-related physical restrictions. Freehold Medical Supplies carries 2 types of walkers, Adjustable and Rollator.
The main difference between a walker and a rollator is that a walker is a frame with handles and legs that needs to be lifted for movement, whereas a rollator has wheels and is pushed.
Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) covers walkers, including rollators, as durable medical equipment (DME).
The walker must be Medically necessary, and your doctor or other treating provider must prescribe it for use in your home.
If you’re the recipient of Medicare, you may be able to access most Medical Supplies that are fully covered by your insurance plan. The team at Developed Medical can help match you to the right supplies that are covered by your insurance.
