Bet ya dollar to donuts Medicare/Medicaid will pay for the repairs to your  
chair, but not thru the provider who is trying to get a new chair.  Call  
Medicaid/Medicare and ask for yourself and a referral to a repair provider. 2 
 that I know of are Wheelchair & Scooter Repair-Solutions in Maryland  
888-584-3095 The other is X-Med in Texas.  These companies can only repair,  
not sell them.
Hope it works for you as Knowledge is POWER.

I went for an evaluation  yesterday to get a power chair.  Even though the 
Dr, wrote up all that.  I need she said she did not think  medicare would 
pay for an elevating seat and she was not sure about the tilt  and recline. 
She said it would take months to get  a review through  medicare.I asked if I 
could get some repairs done to my old chair but was told  NO not while I am 
waiting for a new chair....medicare would not pay for  repairs and then a 
new chair.

Who told you that you could not get your chair repaired while you are  
going thru the process of a new one?

My  chair is so weird, I can charge it all day and night, but it still say 
not  charged. Or I can run it almost dead, and it charge full just over 
night.  I charged it all day, and all night, went dead after 2 miles. A few 
 ago I went 6 miles.
It kind  of feels like the breaks come on while driving sometimes. Other 
times it  feels like something comes loose and my chair comes to a dead  stop.
I can't  do too much to it because I'm trying to get a new chair.
