Does Medicare or other insurance cover LiftSeat?
Medicare does not cover the HCPCS Durable Medical Equipment Code E-0172 (powered toilet seat lift). However, some secondary policies or private insurance companies (e.g., BlueCross/BlueShield, Aetna, etc.) may cover HCPCS Code E-0172 when prescribed by a physician. Check with your provider to see if they cover E-0172 and what paperwork would be needed to cover your powered toilet lift. You may also contact LiftSeat and a representative can help walk you through pursuing insurance reimbursement. If you are a military veteran and receive veteran medical benefits from the VA Health System, the VA does purchase LiftSeats for veterans.
