Abstract: 

A wheelchair clinic at an adult rehab center typically consists of an assessment of one to four visits on an inpatient or outpatient basis followed by one or more visits for fitting and delivery once the new equipment arrives. Barriers such as transportation, geography, medical fragility, funding, and conflict with other home-based or outpatient services may appear to prevent the consumer from getting the needed services. This presentation will address some strategies to allow health care providers to supply these services and get reimbursed for them.
