      Ugh, insurance companies are terrible, I'm really sorry. Can relate a bit, I went into a bit of credit card debt and had to pay it off over time to get a rollator walker with a seat. (Not recommending this unless you have the means or some help.) Thankfully, my insurance covered a basic wheelchair but the rollator walker helped with my freedom since I can be ambulatory with the rollator and just sit as needed unless pain has me stuck in bed. I otherwise needed someone to help push me in the wheelchair. The rollator helps me tolerate longer events and helps during my flare-ups.

      Is it just a basic wheelchair? Or do you need the ones with remote and all that?
