New Braunfels, TX (PRWEB) May 30, 2007
The SCOOTER Store and Bravo by Elder Health, a Medicare Advantage Program, have announced they will be partnering and providing power mobility equipment to more than 3,500 members in Texas. The contract will offer mobility equipment to the health plan's Texas members in need of mobility assistance.
Under the partnership, Bravo by Elder Health members can obtain their power mobility equipment such as electric scooters and power wheelchairs from The SCOOTER Store. The Medicare Advantage process allows beneficiaries to use a private health plan, such as Bravo by Elder Health, while Medicare makes payments to the private health carrier.
"We are proud to become part of the Bravo by Elder Health network," said Dan Gibbens, executive vice president of The SCOOTER Store. "We look forward to assisting Bravo members in Texas obtain power mobility equipment that can increase their mobility and bring them new independence and freedom. Mobility equipment can greatly enhance the quality of life for seniors, and people living with disabilities."
Bravo by Elder Health, founded in 1996, is a senior-focused company committed to being a national leader in simplifying access to healthcare and improving service, outcomes and healthcare quality for seniors. Through its Medicare Advantage and prescription drug programs, Bravo by Elder Health currently serves more than 57,000 individuals in Texas, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and the District of Columbia.
"We look forward to working with The SCOOTER Store," said Pat Feyen, senior vice president and executive director of Bravo by Elder Health in Texas. "The SCOOTER Store shares our goal of enhancing and supporting the quality of life for older adults."
Mr. Gibbens said The SCOOTER Store hopes to make similar arrangements with other Bravo by Elder Health locations across the country.
"We hope this relationship can grow," Mr. Harrison said. "Every day, we help hundreds of seniors and people with disabilities improve their mobility, and live more fulfilling lives. Together, Bravo by Elder Health and The Scooter Store make a strong team that can make a difference in the lives of some of the most vulnerable people in our society."
