The success Steven's had in PT lately, culminating in some strong stepping on the bars confuses insurance companies.
In order to spring for a walker, they would have to declare he's no longer in need of a wheelchair and stop paying out for the power chair, any adjustments or replacements, etc. since they're considered "forever" in the minds of the person in the dark corner of BC/BS who thinks of things to deny and ways to complicate things.
Don't worry, he's GETTING the walker.
I'm just going to be adding a name or two to the "Eat my shorts." list from last post.
It just never occurred to me the power chair was an admission of resignation for life. It's a wonderful "problem" to have so much hope he'll be less dependent on it in time.
