Enders, A. (1988, Winter). Does your personal health insurance plan cover assistive technology? Rehabilitation Technology Review, 1, 7.

Insurance policies often offer little or no coverage for rehabilitation technology and services. It suggests that employees request extended coverage in this area from their employers, who should then turn to the insurance companies to investigate the possibilities.

Pressman, H. (1987, October). Funding technology devices: Ways through the maze. Exceptional Parent, 17(7),48-52.

While targeting a particular source for funding, the first step is to seek aid from an advisor who is knowledgeable, and who will be able to answer the many questions that result from the process. The next step requires collecting information, and then choosing a funding source. Once this has been achieved, parents should obtain a professional technology evaluation of the device. The written request should also include documentation that supports the application for which the device will be used. When ready to write the request, using the proper terminology gives the proposal added weight. Throughout the process, parents should seek professional advice and support, and should be willing, if a request for funding is denied, to follow through with an appeal.
