I was watching the commercial for The Scooter Store and they say they can get you one through Medicare or private insurance for little or next to nothing out of pocket. I was wondering if anyone here has ever applied for one. Also, do you all like me use them at stores or supermarket and how do you feel about it? I have to use them and I'm not embarrassed anymore. If I go somewhere I worry about getting around. Walking, standing or sitting too long while cause more pain. Lately if I venture out, I will feel too uncomfortable and can hardly wait to go home.
