Florida Medicaid restricts wheelchair users to their home

Several years ago, without warning, Medicaid policy was enacted that limits approvals of wheelchairs to those patients that require the chair (ONLY) for access to bathing, feeding, toileting and dressing and grooming IN THE HOME. Any wheelchair or wheelchair feature not directly related to one or more of these activities is no longer covered by Medicaid.
