face it, anything to do with medical services is confusing these
days. Juggling insurance information, Medicare, doctors and
your personal needs is enough to make you go crazy! That's why we're
here to help. Like caring for a family member, Ellsworth Medical is
here to help you negotiate the complex maze of insurance and
healthcare needs. Whether a simple question about which product is
best for your situation, or helping make a phone call to an
insurance provider to make sure your products are paid for, you can
always count on us.
1) Will Medicare cover my purchase?
It depends upon what you are buying. At Ellsworth Medical we will
work with you and your insurance company/Medicare to ensure that you
get as much reimbursement as possible.
2) If my doctor has written a
prescription for a product, does that mean it's covered? As
with all insurance plans, whether or not a product is covered
depends upon your plan type and what the item is. For example, most
insurances do not cover bathroom safety products. At Ellsworth
Medical we will work with you and your insurance company/Medicare to
ensure that you get as much reimbursement as possible.
3) Do you deliver your products?
Yes we offer delivery services on all of our products.
4) Is there financial assistance available
to help pay for my new stair lift? Typically stair lifts
are not covered by insurance.

open five days a week. Monday through Friday 9:30a until 5:30p.
6) Do you accept credit cards?

and American Express.

install my home ramp, stair lift or walk-in tub? Ellsworth
will install home stair lifts, ramps and/or walk-in tubs throughout
Southern New England including CT, MA and RI.
