Many people ask if their insurance or Medicare/Medicaid will cover the cost of an Action Trackchair. Many insurance companies (especially Medicare/Medicaid) do not consider the Action Trackchair a wheelchair but instead label it a recreational device. However, we have had SOME success with private insurance companies, depending on the state in which you reside and your insurance company. These individuals have had some or all of their Action Trackchair covered after a doctor or physical therapist wrote a letter of recommendation deeming the Action Trackchair a QUALITY OF LIFE enhancement. Contact us for tips on working through the insurance process. We are happy to help!
After months of Resna testing, the Action Trackchair and Action Trackstander were granted HCPC code K0899 (a Healthcare Common Procedure Code) in early 2015. This medical billing code allows doctors, physical therapists and medical professionals to write prescriptions and claims to insurance companies for the Action Trackchair.
We have also found that code K0898-RT (Power Wheelchair not otherwise classified) or E1399 (Durable medical equipment, miscellaneous) have worked better varying by state.
If you were injured at work and have a Workman’s Compensation account, check with them to see if you would qualify for an Action Trackchair. Again, using a letter of recommendation from your doctor or therapist could help you obtain an Action Trackchair paid through Workman’s Compensation. If you need a quote to send in for this, please contact our office.

Most states have a DVR department, otherwise know as the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation. The purpose for this department is to get individuals back into a work environment. Many Action Trackchairs have been purchased by state departments of Vocational Rehab to assist in getting individuals back into the workplace. If you feel that you could use an Action Trackchair to get back to a prior occupation, or get into a new career path, get in contact with your local Action Trackchair dealer, or your local Vocational Rehab representative, and they can help you go through the process. This is not a guaranteed process, but it is definitely a fantastic resource for those looking to get back into work.

We have been honored to deliver the gift of an Action Trackchair to hundreds of our nation’s wounded warriors over the past years. We work closely with foundations that are providing Action Trackchairs for veterans from all eras and conflicts. Each group has a different application process and approval criteria.
If you are a veteran that was injured in combat in a warzone or past conflict, or have an injury or disability related to your time serving our country, please get in contact with our office and we can get you on the path to applying with the foundation that best fits your current situation. We cannot guarantee approval, but there are so many willing to help our nation’s wounded veterans get what they need to enjoy their daily lives.
Some of these foundations are also able to help veterans that have disabilities and injuries that are NOT related to their time in the military. If you are a veteran facing this issue, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will do our best to get you in touch with the proper foundation(s).
Most importantly, from all of us at Action Trackchair to you…
