The process of financing a stair climbing wheelchair such as Scewo BRO is as follows:

- Together with the test report, the medical prescription is submitted to your health insurance company.
- In Germany, a specialist from the Medical Service (MD; formerly MDK) will then visit you to check the suitability of BRO as your power wheelchair. In Switzerland, a specialist from the SAHB usually assesses the suitability of the requested wheelchair.
- Based on this, your insurance or health insurance company decides how much they will pay for your new power wheelchair. If the health insurance company does not agree to pay, you can appeal the decision, turn to foundations or finance the amount privately.
