Power Wheelchair: Documentation Requirements


In this presentation, Sherry Kolodziejczak, MS, OTR/L, Crestwood Medical Center, reviews the documentation requirements for power wheelchair evaluation. The Medicare Power Wheelchair form is reviewed in a line-by-line basis teaching the required documentation requirements. Required documentation areas discussed include the Physician Face-to-Face Exam, the 7 element order, the therapist Specialty Examination, and the detailed product description/letter of medical necessity. When proper submission of the power wheelchair evaluation documentation follows the 9 step Algorithm, approval and delivery of power wheelchair to the client is assured.
