Gaining funding of assistive technology (AT) is a very frustrating process. FAAST has developed a series of webinars to make this process easier. These webinars will cover four major funding sources for AT in Florida. Each webinar will discuss one of the four successful strategies for acquiring AT by focusing on the FAAST FIRST process. For more information, please email faast@faastinc.org or call 1-844-FL-FAAST (353-2278).

This webinar will focus on acquiring AT through Florida Medicaid, specifically mobility and communication devices. This webinar will teach participants how to acquire mobility devices; such as scooters, manual/power wheelchairs, and specialty seating systems. As well as how to secure Speech Generating Device (SGD), better known as a communication device, with Medicaid. Participants will learn the steps for requesting an evaluation, proper paperwork, follow-up, and if necessary the appeal process. Specific information will be provided for state plan and managed care beneficiaries.
