Medicare Details

At this time, Medicare does not have Walk-In Tubs on the “Durable Medical Equipment” list therefore there is not a five digit billing code for walk in tubs. This means that even if you submit a doctors prescription and a paid invoice for your walk in tub there is no guarantee that Medicare will cover any of the expenses.

If you or your parent is 65 or older and collecting Social Security, the insurance premiums are deducted from monthly benefits. Part D prescription drug coverage is subsidized by Medicare through payments to private company insurers who then fund an average of 90 percent of the cost of prescription drugs. If you are receiving only Social Security, Medicare may subsidize all but about $10 of the monthly premiums.

Possible Reimbursement for Your Serenity Bathtub!

After you purchase your Serenity Walk-In Bathtub, you can submit your prescription and the paid invoice for your tub to Medicare. Medicare does occasionally reimburse a portion of your purchase price, so taking the time to submit your request is well worth the effort, even if there are no guarantees. Bathing is an essential part of good health.  If you can get the bath you need at a discounted rate, not only will your physical health reap the benefits, but your financial health will as well.
