Home Modifications Covered by Medicare and Medicaid

“Walk-in tubs, hospital beds and wheelchair ramps are among the many home modifications and devices keeping seniors safe. They don’t come cheap, but government programs such as Medicare and Medicaid can defray the cost.”

“Medicare is extremely strict about what it covers, but seniors who show medical necessity qualify for up to 80% coverage. Seniors using their hospice care benefit don’t have to pay anything for covered equipment. Meanwhile, a few Medicare Advantage plans offer limited support for home modifications.”

“Medicaid is more flexible, with many programs routinely offering medication dispensers and personal emergency response services.”
