What are the Medicare #'s to try to get reimbursement for a Roll-A-Bout (used when crutches and walkers can't)

A Roll-A-Bout is considered a durable medical supply (DMS) but most people rent them as a temporary solution to getting around when crutches are no longer an option (because of hand injuries, shoulders, back ect.) Most DMS are not covered by insurance so the battle begins with getting the right Medicare billing codes. If Medicare will pay, major medical is also suppose to pay. I am tyrying to get my information in order before I speak with them.

Can you give me an estimate of how much my bill would be on medicare?

my social worker wants me to quit my medicare managed plan which is blue cross blue shield.
its just that its impossible to get a standing wheelchair approved.
yea, I’m paralyzed from the waist down.
My medicaid social worker spoke to a medical supply store that said it would accept straight medicare for a wheelchair.
I asked him about a standing one and he didn’t understand what I meant but he assured me if its on the market he can get it for me.
the problem is medicare pays 80% and blue cross pays 100% for my durable medical supplies.
the dilemma:
Is it cheaper paying 20% and deductible with medicare or quarterly payments with blue cross of 172.00
my monthly bill for durable medical supplies is as follows:
10.90 for night drainage bags
35 condom catheters 42.35
extension tube 1.89
skin prep 7.50
leg bags at 15.76
medical supply company and social worker don’t know how much
its just that beside the 20% copay with medicare I also have a deductible for medical supplies that must be met before it I only have to pay 20%
i called up medicare and medicare can’t give me a estimate either
