Does Medicare Cover Shower Chairs?

Medicare does not include “shower chairs” in their list of DME(durable medical equipment). Devices used for convenience, self-aid, or comfort do not fit the criteria for Medicare’s meaning of medically necessary equipment.

So unfortunately, you will need to pay out of pocket to acquire a shower chair for your use. The good thing is that shower chairs are usually under $100, and the most basic one can be priced at around $20-30.
