The FOOTBAR Walker is a Class I Medical Device.
According to the National Coverage Determination (NCD) for Mobility Assistive Equipment (MAE), to consider an MAE, including a walker, reasonable and necessary, you must determine that the beneficiary/patient has a personal mobility deficit that impairs their participation in mobility-related activities of daily living (MRADLs) such as toileting, feeding, dressing, grooming, and bathing in customary locations within the home. Coverage and payment determinations are made based on the Clinical Criteria for MAE coverage.
