Abstract: 

There is a misconception that the provision of power adjustable seat height (aka power seat elevation) is not covered by third-party payors, which is inaccurate. Many third-party payors that implement a prior authorization process will consider this technology on a case-by-case basis and are looking for assurances that the need for the power seat function has been clearly documented. This course will examine the clinical benefits and research in support of a power height adjustable seat system, provide the clinician, provider and consumer with practical tools to consider and incorporate when evaluating, documenting and advocating for this power seat option.
