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.

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.
