A commode is only covered when you are physically incapable of utilizing regular toilet facilities. For example:
- You are confined to a single room, or
- You are confined to one level of the home environment and there is no toilet on that level, or
- You are confined to the home and there are no toilet facilities in the home.
- Heavy-duty commodes are covered if you weigh over 300 pounds. Commodes with detachable arms are covered if your body configuration requires extra width, or if the arms are needed to transfer in and out of the chair.
