They had a TV ad for a while that pretty much guaranteed if you would just call them they could get you a scooter if you had Medicare or Medicaid. No mention of needing a Dr. to say you needed one or anything like that. Those scooters are pretty pricy; but when my brother needed one last year he found a nice one on Craigslist for next to nothing- the people told him they got it for “free” so they likely didn’t even have any idea what it cost the taxpayers.
My 90 Year Old Father wanted a Hoveround to take him where he wanted to go. I think he really wanted the free Insulated Cup and Cup holder they were offering with the Chair.
We took him to a Doctor for an evaluation and was declined.
He uses a Cane and a Walker right now and he is pretty shaky when he walks more than 100 feet. He still wasn’t considered to be in bad enough shape to need a power chair.
Meanwhile, I love watching the big fat people using the Power Shopping Carts at Walmart and at the Grocery Store. Most of them are half my Father’s age. LOL
I had better start checking Craigslist. Sounds like the same thing people do with Food Stamps, sell the Groceries bought by the Taxpayers for cash. The price of Choom is skyrocketing in the Obama Economy you know.
