Effective May 1, 1991, suppliers must give beneficiaries entitled to electric wheelchairs the option of purchasing them at the time the supplier first furnishes the item. Contractors make no rental payment for the first month for electric wheelchairs until the supplier notifies the contractor that it has given the beneficiary the option of either purchasing or renting. Information contained in Exhibit 2 may be furnished to beneficiaries by suppliers to help them make a rent/purchase decision. Contractors provide copies of Exhibit 2 to suppliers. Payment must be on a lump-sum fee schedule purchase basis where the beneficiary chooses the purchase option. If the beneficiary declines to purchase the electric wheelchair initially, contractors make rental payments in the same manner as any other capped rental item, including the instructions in §30.5.2.
