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 or call 1-844-FL-FAAST (353-2278).

Like the November webinar, this training will focus on mobility aids and speech generating devices; the only difference is the funding source. Medicare, having its own policies and guidelines, is very different from Medicaid. This webinar will provide participants with skills like working with a Primary Care Physician on proper paperwork, identifying a RESNA certified provider, scheduling the proper evaluations, finding help with deductibles, and if necessary working through the appeal process.
