He'll turn 80 next January. How many months would I have to wait wait before the payment starts?
Don't quite understand the question.
Medicare would pay the supplier directly from the start. You would likely pay nothing at all.

Would I pay nothing at all, including radiotherapy and transportation to and from home?

Do you mean, zero nada zilch at all?

I thought you were only talking about the wheelchair. You'd pay nothing for that.
Radiotherapy would probably involve copayments. Transportation might or might not be paid for.
Both of those would depend on exactly what insurance plan you would be using to supplement Medicare--that is, to pay what Medicare itself doesn't pay for.

Thanks. I pay nothing for radiotherapy. Transportation is not covered.

Now, we''re really way off topic. I'm done with healthcare, for good.  :D
