The big change was delivered yesterday - a power wheelchair. It seemed as though we would never get it; the plans were laid near the first of the year, and then we had one delay after another. First, the doc's office didn't sign certain documents, and then Medicare and/or Aetna declined to pay for certain aspects of it; such as a seat belt, a transportation package and arm rests Can you believe they would deny those 3 items? I can't - it was ludicrous!!
Finally, we were able to get all the details worked out and a delivery date was set. Yesterday afternoon, it came, and we got a demo of how to use it and some final adjustments in the fit were made. Of course Jim had a hard time telling the guy what was and was not comfortable for him, so after a few days, we will undoubtedly need to call for another adjustment. I am not surprised!
