Will the cost of installation and equipment be covered by my disability in California?

If your disability was a result of a work or vehicle accident, check together with the right insurance carrier to find out if home modifications resulting from your CA handicap are insured. Claims that contain Bakersfield home adjustments are not inadmissible in insurance resolutions. Someone have a medical condition that meets their definition of impairment and qualifies for Social Security disability benefits when they've worked in a job that was insured by Social Security.

The money that's set aside under a PASS can be used for anything that results in an occupational objective and can be utilized to cover home adjustments through an SSI savings strategy. In case you are a veteran, the Department of Veterans' Affairs does offer individual programs that could allow you to deflect some of the cost.

Many of the walk in tubs on the market have a 40-80 gallon capacity.

How do walk-in tubs drain?

Some systems employ a gravitation simply drainage system, while other manufacturers offer power-assisted drainage systems. Usually, the drainage system in a walk-in tub is attached to the normal bath drain, which is threaded into a flat conduit called a waste shoe. The shoe is sealed with putty or a foam washer under its flange. Since a bather cannot leave the bath until all of the water is drained, the huge difference is the fact that since sitting there waiting for the water to drain can leave a bather feeling cooled, manufacturing companies have attempted to decrease the waiting time. Some features may cost you more, therefore it is almost always wise to inquire. Finally, get to know the difference between frameless tubs and framed tubs since frameless baths tend to empty quicker than framed baths, because they do not alter the drain height of your existing tub. Framed baths are constructed on a steel frame as well as the base of the bathtub is dangled off the floor. Frameless tubs are designed with an extra-strength form that does not need a steel frame and the underside of the tub isn't hung in the air.

Will AETNA cover the cost of equipment and installation in California?

Aetna doesn't cover walk in bathtubs under their traditional plans in California. They usually follow Medicare's criteria for durable medical equipment (DME) items used in the bathroom. In the event the member is bed- confined or room - confined some DMEs are considered medically necessary, rather than a convenience. DMEs are considered medically necessary if it's needed for day-to-day tasks and is primarily medical in nature. Since bathing is considered a daily living action and considered crucial, Aetna lists bathroom items that are considered medically necessary if a member is unable to bathe or shower without being seated or unable to transfer to and from a tub.

Why are these tubs so much more expensive than normal tubs?

Mainly you are paying for a listing of safety features that are unavailable on a regular bathtub. These safety features are built into walk in tubs for persons with limited freedom to reduce the chance of falling down. Model wall heights are generally 37 to 47 inches tall and contain a built in shower seat, textured floor, grab bars, anti-scald valves, in-line heater, temperature controls, and also a water tight door. An essential feature of walk in baths is that there is a low step threshold to allow a user to easily enter into the bathtub unconcerned in regards to the normal high wall of a normal bathtub. The walk-in tubs also typically comprise jet treatment a cleaning function, and enhanced drain choices. Also, one of the reasons why the price changes among the walk-in tubs is that the tubs are custom-made depending on an individual 's needs rather than factory replicated, so you could find a bathtub that's especially made for someone who wants wheelchair access, a bath that fits a larger individual, or a soaker tub with jets.

What sort of guarantees are there that these tubs won’t leak and damage my Bakersfield house?

Consumer Affairs recommends that an initial owner purchase a lifetime guarantee to give peace of mind to buyers about flows. Also, ask if the lifetime warranty is extended to other owners as well. For most California house installations, this will probably be included for a set number of years.

How do walk in bathtubs work?

When you enter the walk in tub, by pulling the handle toward you, you close the doorway and seal it. Make sure that the handle is locked in order to prevent any water loss. There are different types of handles determined by the version you decide to buy. Make sure it is a handle which you can easily work. Following that, you shut the floor drain and ensure that the anti-scald device has already been preset before using the bath. Your bath is ready, once the tub fills to the desired depth. Ensure that you get familiar with the operating instructions to estimate which speed works best for your requirements in case you plan on using jets. Makers may also recommend a maximum time of use. After you've completed your bath, remove the drain determined by the kind of drain or turn the overflow knob you must drain the water. Pull on the bathtub exit and handle the bath.

Nonetheless, many folks typically desire to make sure they are purchasing a walk-in bath that personally meets with their needs for the long term. They are not as inclined to choose a big risk by paying all of the costs associated with transportation as well as the removal of their existing tub without assurance and a little more investment in the state and quality of their purchase. There's not really a big market for used plumbing fixtures. If you are not sure how long you are definitely going to be at your Bakersfield home and can not justify a long-term care alternative of a leading walkin tub installation, then there are simple step retrofits that give you the ability to return the toilet to an unmodified bathroom to avoid turning potential buyers away who don't need to pay for a large removal.
