Ron’s Medicaid paid for him to purchase a wheelchair, however, he still could not lift himself into bed from the wheelchair. Medicaid would not pay for a lift that would move him between his bed and wheelchair.
Ron used his Special Needs Trust at Springhill Pooled Accounts Trust to purchase a ceiling track lift to solve this problem. This lift allows Ron to have safe and secure transfer within the home without strain to either caregiver or patient.
Contact Springhill Pooled Accounts Trust to learn how you can use your Special Needs Trust to pay for medical expenses that Medicaid does not cover.
