Frequently Asked Questions

1) Is there any way to sell the equipment when we are done with it?

Yes. There are providers and manufacturers that offer buy back plans. Many of them are going to remove the unwanted lift also. A lot of people want to purchase reconditioned stairlifts, so the demand is there. Many buyers do not like to buy directly from a seller, because they need to have it checked out by a professional to determine how well it works and whether it'll work on their stairway. Certain versions sell easier than many others.

2) Does AETNA cover the cost of these lifts?

No. Aetna bases this determination on whether several criteria are met. The Aetna member must be: (1) incapable of standing up from a standard armchair at home; (2) and must have severe arthritis of the hip or knee, or have serious neuromuscular disorder; (3) and the seat lift mechanism must be prescribed to effect improvement, or arrest or retard deterioration in the member's condition; (4) and once standing, the member should possess the capacity to ambulate. Subsequently, Aetna would consider seat lift mechanisms medically necessary durable medical equipment (DME). Nevertheless, Aetna does not insure stairlifts because they're considered residence modifications. They basically follow the rules for aerodynamic lift mechanisms of Medicare as explained in the question that handles Medicare coverage of these medical devices.

3) How sturdy are these lifts to install?

The sturdiness of the chair assembly and path of a stairlift can fluctuate so it's good to do some homework. Some companies claim the strongest in the industry is the model that offers the most significant weight capacity at 400 lbs.. Heavier duty versions require more sturdy tracks and bigger batteries. Most lifts are made to fit passengers who weigh 250 pounds or less. Heavy-duty versions cost more so be sure you get the model that fits the individual who'll use the stairlift. Always check whether the producer has an established reputation for durable, safe and well-made products.

4) How are they powered?

You can save energy by turning it away with the remote also, when you're not using the stairlift. Stairlifts come in both battery powered (D/C) and electric (A/C) versions. One concern is whether you reside in a location that experiences lots of power outages, since you don't want to be stranded mid-elevator during a storm. (Yet, ask the maker about the backup power system which should be included in your version.) Additionally, consider the price of replacing the battery and the life of the battery. While some favor electric models for reasons which range from battery life to some apparatus issues specific to battery models, others favor battery powered stairlifts, because they are able to lead to lower electric bills, although the cost of the electricity to control the stairlift has been considered negligible by the majority of manufacturers. Because the battery version still has a wall plug to keep the battery charged, you really do not have to plug in a battery charger after every use. Another thing to consider is the way inclined the user is, because the seat and casing on some versions have to be removed and cables need to be disconnected and reconnected to insert the new battery. Ask for instructions and see whether it is something you will wish to replace yourself. We'd be very happy to help you out. In case you decide on an electric version, make certain there is a spark plug within a couple of feet of the lift. No specific outlets are essential. Request the best way to change the back up fuse on an electrical stairlift.

5) Why are they so expensive to install?

Above all, they help you each step of the way and comprise regular care. Professional setup is significantly more economical in the long-run with regards to warranty, service and long-term care since they are trained to follow security measures and experienced at installation. The installer is getting paid to correctly install your unit so that you do not confront serious hazards that do result when an inexperienced man installs a stairlift and opens the manual for the first time. A Wilmington professional also knows just how to ensure that the stairlift follows fire exit demands, how to ensure that assure that all the appropriate operating features are empowered, and the charger connections are working correctly to avoid serious accidents. The price you pay to have a trustworthy and trained technician ensures your safety as well as the longevity of your purchase. Repairs and reinstallations can take longer and cost more than a suitable first installation. Additionally, installation includes lifting a good quantity of weight. Many installations could be finished in a couple of hours by a professional.

6) Can these lifts be used on wood flooring?

Lifts can be installed on all types of flooring (carpeting, concrete, tile, marble, linoleum, or bare wooden stairway). Holes will probably be apparent without carpeting when the stairlift is removed. However, the holes are small and can be filled. Stairlifts can be installed on wooden outside steps. The railing will soon be attached to your wooden steps. In fact, most professionally installed stairlifts in Wilmington price between $500 and $1,000 for the labor given a variety of factors based on the difficulty of the occupation. Tile, concrete, or metal staircases are less easy than wooden stairway. Having wooden stairs as a construction material of the staircase makes the occupation for an installer less labor intensive and affordable for you.

7) How are these lifts fitted?

Making your purchase can involve an excellent deal of time effort and decision-making once you consider which attributes matter most to you and all the different types of stairlifts that are available to you personally that will suit your requirements. Fitting the lift involves making certain that the best attention is given to the system fitting correctly in order that you don't have to worry about its security or reliability, once you have decided. Your best bet would be to have it meet by licensed Wilmington professionals. These certified professionals quantify the step heights and pitch angle to achieve correctness. The professional ascertain your stairs can be fit by the stairlift --and will visit the site--indoor or outside. The track will be secured by them to the stairs with supports fixed to the staircase. Often people wonder if it is attached to the wall, but the stairlift is right fitted via the floor covering of the stairs. In case the stairwell is removed, your stairs is free of damage.

8) Can you rent a stair lift for an extended period of time?

As a result of individual circumstances you might be facing, you will need to lease a stairlift instead of buy one. Some makers offer this option understanding that there are particular occasions when a customer may only need it for a short period of time. Maybe you will have business for a protracted period of time that can reap the benefits of its use, maybe you let your house, or someone in your household has had an accident or surgery and needs it briefly. Sometimes, determined by the medical condition, you simply can not be sure how long you'll need the stairlift and renting seems like the best option on a month-to-month basis. Rental programs frequently provide a minimum of 3 months and normally contain the setup and de-installation in the rental package. Some North Carolina firms even offer lease to own programs. Nonetheless, it's important to consider the price of installation and de-installation before picking this alternative instead of buying a stairlift that is secondhand.

9) Does AARP cover the cost of these lifts?

AARP isn't a provider of insurance, but contracts with insurers to make coverage available to AARP members. AARP does not cover the price of any health needs or stairlifts and doesn't make people health plan recommendations. AARP does provide coverage like other health plans and Medicare Supplement Insurance and accessibility to health care tools to members as a resource, but third parties provide member advantages. Check with the plans that are listed under the membership services of AARP.

10) Does health insurance cover equipment cost and installation of a lift?

Medicare will not cover setup prices and stairlift equipment, because they are house modifications, not durable medical equipment. Durable medical equipment contains lifts that are used to help a patient in out of bed or a chair. Medicaid in your state may cover stairlifts through Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Waivers. In North Carolina, persons with limited financial resources may be eligible for the North Carolina Medicaid COPES Waiver, recently replaced by the Community First Choice Alternative. It enables individuals who supports independent living and need nursing home level attention to receive that care at home, including coverage for home alterations. Family members could be compensated for supplying caregiving aid. It's best to review different insurance policies. Some private health or long-term care insurance can help pay for small house adjustments. Check with your Wilmington insurance carrier to review coverage alternatives. The National Association of Home Builders suggests that some auto insurance, worker's compensation, long-term care coverages, state disastrous accident insurance plans, and medical trust funds can cover the expenses of a home modification.

11) How much do electric stair lifts cost in Wilmington?

Used electric-powered stairlifts can start at about $1,299.00, while battery powered stairlifts can start at about $1,399.00 in North Carolina. Both versions are priced when you buy them new. The cost difference is minimal initially. In the future, electrical-powered stairlifts may cost you less, if you factor in the amount of care and replacement batteries. Frequently, although there are batteries that are pretty simple to install depending on the model it's recommended to get the battery rather than attempt to replace it yourself. Most batteries are rated to last for approximately 3,200 one way trips, but the life of the battery really depends on how frequently you use the stairlift.

12) How much do they weigh?

The units are heavy, which is among the reasons we do not recommend trying to install them yourself. The lightest units available on the market weigh 165-180 pounds installed (seat and path). Some units weight over 250 pounds installed. Seat collections and tracks come in different sizes and shapes and are made of different kinds of materials determined by its finest attributes and the model.
