For people who are uninsured, under-insured or whose insurance company will not pay for a mobility scooter, there are several options for purchasing a scooter on your own. Some scooter companies will work with people who must pay for their own mobility scooter, so that they can have a payment plan. Another excellent idea for patients who must pay for their own scooter is to purchase a used mobility scooters. Used scooters (that are refurbished) can be less than half the cost of a new scooter, but they can be just as functional and suited to your needs. If you want a scooter with more options, but don't want to pay the high price, getting used mobility scooters can also help you with getting a higher end model at a lower price.
