Redman Power Chair is contracted with VA centers throughout the United States. If you are a Veteran and believe a standing power wheelchair would improve your activities of daily living, we can help.
If you were injured during active duty or have been diagnosed with one of the following neurological disorders; multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, quadriplegia, paraplegia or other mobility/ neurological diseases the VA may cover the cost of your power wheelchair.
How to start the VA process:
1st : Schedule a mobility assessment appointment with your primary physician.
2nd: At this appointment, the doctor will determine what level of wheelchair your mobility limitations medically justify.
The severity of your mobility limitations determine what level of mobility equipment will be purchased by the VA. The Redman Power Chair is a Level 3. Therefore, your mobility must be limited in both your upper and lower exterminates. If you still have some upper extremity mobility and have pressure ulcers you may be an exception.
3rd : VA Seating Committee must also approve Level 3 power wheelchair
4th: You will be assigned a VA Purchasing Agent.
This person will support your both administratively and financially in the process.
Please contact Redman Power Chair’s customer service department with inquiries on the product or qualification standards.
Workers compensation is one of the easiest insurances for us to work with. If you are injured at work, covered by workers compensation for your injury and you medically qualify most likely you will receive your chair quickly and without the hassle of most insurances.
The department of Veterans Affairs completes the assessment tiers for you and we can assist as much as demonstrating the benefits to you in our chair but we cannot help by submitting on your behalf or help with the process as much. You have to self advocate through the department.
Vocational Rehab is a funding source that varies a bit from state to state. If you have skills that apply to a field you wish to return to they serve as a funding source for your goal in rejoining the workforce. There are many occupations worth looking into and we may be of an assistance if you would like to call for more information regarding the product and experience.
