How can I locate funding for rehabilitation and equipment?

Financial assistance for rehabilitation and necessary medical equipment

Depending upon the cause and the nature of the injury, you should seek out various insurance policies that may cover medical emergencies (homeowners, auto, and Workers’ compensation) in addition to your health insurance.

If you still need assistance, there are some non-profit organizations that provide grants for individuals. However, funding levels and guidelines do vary from organization to organization.

For more information on organizations that provide grants to individuals as well as those that donate wheelchairs and other equipment, please call our information specialists at 800-539-7309, Monday through Friday, from 9am to 8pm ET.

You can also refer to HelpHOPELive to create a fundraising campaign. They assist individuals with raising funds through their Catastrophic Injury Program. Call toll-free 800-642-8399.
