Working With Us

Great American Mobility is committed to providing excellent customer service and a stress-free step by step process to all of our patients.

To better ensure a positive experience, it is essential to understand the many steps involved and the information that will be required.


Keep in mind
Each chair is hand crafted and customized to the patients unique situation, comfort, and lifestyle.

Our Process

Ordering, receiving, and customizing your mobility equipment involves several moving parts. The process is set in motion once we receive a request for assistance.

We begin by reviewing & verifying the patient information.
Next, an ATP will schedule and conduct the evaluation.
The documentation is finalized and submitted to insurance.

Once approved, our team will order the components needed to build the mobility equipment.
The final stages include the assembly and delivery of the chair, followed by the final adjustments to the chair.

Gathering Patient Information

Face-To-Face Encounter

The Face-To-Face will include all of the following*:

2e. The beneficiary has enough upper extremely function and other physical and mental capabilities needed to safely self-propel the manual wheelchair that is provided in the home during a typical day OR the beneficiary has a caregiver who is availing, willing and able to aid with the wheelchair.
