The professional team at the St. Lawrence Rehabilitation Center Wheelchair / Seating Clinic will obtain a prescription and all necessary paperwork, and write a letter of medical necessity for the wheelchair in order to justify reimbursement through your insurance company, providing you meet the qualifications. A preferred certified vendor will be present during the evaluation and will order the chair and handle all maintenance requirements of the wheelchair.
