Frequently Asked Questions

1) Does health insurance cover equipment cost and installation of a lift?

Because they're home modifications, not durable medical equipment, Medicare does not cover installation prices and stairlift equipment. Durable medical equipment contains lifts which are used to help a patient in out of bed or a chair. Medicaid in your state may cover stairlifts through Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Waivers. In Illinois, individuals with limited financial resources may qualify for the Illinois Medicaid COPES Waiver, recently replaced by the Community First Choice Alternative. It empowers people who supports independent living and need nursing home level care to receive that care at home, including coverage for home alterations. Family can be compensated for supplying caregiving assistance. As stated by the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), some private health insurance providers may offer financial assistance for some home modifications if the elevator is recognized as a medical necessity. It's better to review different insurance policies. Some private health or long-term care insurance may help pay for home modifications that are small. Check with your Bloomington insurance carrier to review coverage alternatives. The National Association of Home Builders suggests that some auto insurance, worker's compensation, long-term care policies, state disastrous accident insurance plans, and medical trust funds can cover the expenses of a house adjustment.

2) Does it increase or decrease the value of my home?

The overall value of your house won't depreciate. If you plan on selling your Bloomington residence, realtors used to recommend that a stairlift be removed prior to placing your house on the Illinois marketplace, nevertheless given increased life expectancy, this isn't any longer the case. You go or may also completely remove the stairlift with no signs of installation when you want or need it. Realtors can list the dwelling is appropriate for living that is reachable independent and that the stairlift is a high utility value for disabled people and if a purchaser desires it removed, then that chance is offered by them.

3) Can these lifts be used on wood flooring?

Lifts can be installed on all types of flooring (carpeting, concrete, tile, marble, linoleum, or bare wooden stairs). Holes will probably be obvious without carpeting when the stairlift is removed. However, the holes are not large and could be filled. Stairlifts can also be installed on wooden outside steps. The truth is, most professionally installed stairlifts in Bloomington price between $500 and $1,000 for the labour given a variety of variables based on the problem of the occupation. Tile, concrete, or metal staircases are less easy than wooden stairs.

4) About how long does it take to fully install one of these lifts in my Bloomington home?

A fitting can take between 1-2 hours for straight stairs. A Illinois professional will install the railing initially, followed by the seat along with the motor. Appropriate setup includes once it is been examined after the fitting walking you through the characteristics of your new stairlift. A fitting for a curved stairlift can take up to a half day.

5) How much do they weigh?

The units are not light, which is among the reasons we do not advocate trying to install them yourself. The lightest units on the market weigh 165-180 pounds installed (chair and course). Some units weight over 250 pounds installed. Chair collections and tracks come in different sizes and shapes and are made of different types of stuff determined by the model and its greatest features.

6) Can you apply for one of these lifts if you are on disability?

Someone have a health condition that meets their definition of handicap and qualifies for Social Security disability benefits when they've worked in a job that was insured by Social Security. If you're injured or on handicap, benefits could be covered. Since SSI is a needs-based plan and an SSI recipient must have limited income and resources, qualification for the Plan for Achieving Self-Support (PASS) allows a person with a disability to attain an occupational goal. The cash that is set aside under a PASS can be used for anything that contributes to an occupational objective and can be used to cover house modifications through an SSI savings strategy. It's possible for you to figure out more about PASS through your Illinois Social Security Administration office or call toll free 800 772 1213.

7) How do stair lifts work?

Basically, it is like riding in your ski lift, minus the bitter cold. You sit in a motorized swivel chair snugly equipped to make you as comfortable as possible with personalized characteristics. A safety belt keeps you firmly in place along with a foot rest prevents you from hitting the steps while using the lift. Some stairlifts come with mounted call/send controls on the wall close to the trails for a user or a remote control can be used by you to send the seat where you would like it to go. Sometimes the control panel can be found on the seat arm. Become acquainted with the particular characteristics of your unit. Once you are ready, determined by the version you bought or leased, you can control the speed and adjust the seat as you travel up and down your stairs. The lift consists of a motor, carriage, the control system, and your comfortable seat so you could once again regain your mobility. Some versions rely on a belt like a conveyor belt and a rack and pinion system is used by other models.

8) How fast do stairlifts go?

Generally the speed ranges from 13.78 feet per minute to 29.53 feet per minute with the speed varying with the rider's weight, all within the recommended industry standard. The most rate in the usa is 40 feet per minute. Units can come with an emergency brake safety feature in case you feel out of control descending. The American Society of Mechanical Engineers oversees the standards for stairway chair lifts for issues of public safety, including speed under ASME A18.1.. Some manufacturers provide a variable speed of 0 to 38 feet per minute.

9) What types of financing are available if insurance doesn't cover home modifications?

Depending on your own medical condition, there are several plans which help make the home modification less expensive. 1. Government grants that are offered for home alterations are listed by the Fall Prevention Centre of Excellence. 2. Contact the National Council on Independent Living Center (703) 525-3406 on the best way to get financing and referral services in your area. 3. You can also contact the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) which is part of the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to make an application for financing to pay for your stairlift through a mortgage insurance program. 4. It may reassure you to be aware of that if your insurance doesn't cover the cost, several of the stairlift manufacturers have partnered with banks to provide funding alternatives, including monthly payment choices and loans. 5. There are other options to consider. The IRS may determine your house adjustment qualifies for tax deductions. Phone the IRS to find out when you can deduct the cost of installing your stairlift. IRS Publication 502 is a good resource that will enable you to gauge whether altering your stairway qualifies you to deduct it as a medical expense. You may also call them at (800) 829-1040. 6. Should you qualify, some Area Agency of Aging use funds from the Older Americans Act Title III to alter homes. Many cities and towns use Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) for home alterations, so check with your Bloomington , Illinois office. It's possible for you to phone them toll free at 877-866-2476 or visit

10) How much do stair lifts costs?

Based on Consumer Affairs, the top nine stairlift brand names starting with the best-rated comprise: Ascent Stairlifts, Reachable Building, Acorn Stairlifts, Silver Cross, Bruno, AmeriGlide, State Home Elevator, 101 Mobility and Stannah. Experts rate these based on various attributes, variables, and suitability as a result of circumstances. Many of these companies do not publicize their costs, since every staircase is different. Frequently, they are going to beat any competitive quote. Used stairlifts can cost under $2,000. Aid and rental systems are available. While some don't contain setup in the cost, some products are sold as complete packages including installment plus a warranty. The shape of the stairwell, the span of the seat style the track, job, and the attributes you desire decide the cost.

11) How are they powered?

Here's another remote to add to your set, in the event you have ever fought for the remote. When you're not using the stairlift, you can conserve energy by turning it away with the remote also. Stairlifts come in both battery-powered (D/C) and electric (A/C) versions. One concern is whether you reside in a location that experiences a lot of power outages, since you do not need to be stranded mid-lift during a thunderstorm. (Nonetheless, ask the maker about the backup power system that should be contained in your version.) Also, consider the price of replacing the life of the battery and also the battery. While some favor electrical models for reasons ranging from battery life to some device difficulties unique to battery models, others prefer battery-powered stairlifts, since they could result in lower electric bills, although the cost of the electricity to control the stairlift has been considered insignificant by the majority of manufacturers. You do not have to plug after every use in a battery charger, because the battery version still has a wall plug to keep the battery charged. Another thing to think about is the way mechanically inclined the user is, because housing and the seat on some versions must be removed and cables need to be disconnected and reconnected to add the brand new battery. Ask for instructions and see if it's something you'll need to replace yourself. We'd be very happy to help you out. Make certain there is a plug within several feet of the elevator in case you decide on an electric model. No specific outlets are essential. Ask the best way to change the back up fuse on an electrical stairlift.

12) Are there any structural modifications needed before installing a lift?

No. There are no adjustments which are essential since stairlifts don't attach to the wall. The stairlift is installed into existing stair treads. The one thing that we do advocate is that if you are intending to modify the flooring or carpeting in your stairs in the following five years, you might want to plan to do it before you install your stairlift to avoid future removal and re-installation costs.
