"I am a double amputee and have used both a Hoveround and an Amigo scooter. The scooter allows me to transfer to the toilet, bath or bed much more easily than the wheelchair.
In addition, I can transport the scooter in my minivan much more easily than I could the Hoveround. The Hoveround requires a ramp while the scooter only requires a sling.
Let me know how I may help with your effort to make the playing field more level as far as Medicare reimbursement for wheelchairs and scooters."
