Medicare Documentation Requirements for a Walker

A Standard Walker (E0130, E0135, E0141, E0143) and related accessories are covered if all of the following criteria (1-3) are met:

  • The beneficiary has a mobility limitation that significantly impairs his/her ability to participate in one or more mobility-related activities of daily living (MRADL) in the home.

    A mobility limitation is one that:
  • Prevents the beneficiary from accomplishing the MRADL entirely, or
  • Places the beneficiary at reasonably determined heightened risk of morbidity or mortality secondary to the attempts to perform the MRADL, or
  • Prevents the beneficiary from completing the MRADL within a reasonable time frame; and
  • The beneficiary is able to safely use the walker; and
  • The functional mobility deficit can be sufficiently resolved with use of a walker.

 A heavy duty walker (E0148, E0149) is covered for beneficiaries who 

  • meet coverage criteria for a standard walker and 
  • who weigh more than 300 pounds

A heavy duty, multiple braking system, variable wheel resistance walker (E0147) is covered for beneficiaries who 

  • meet coverage criteria for a standard walker and 
  • who are unable to use a standard walker due to a severe neurologic disorder or other condition causing the restricted use of one hand
