Funding Your Device
Funding AbleNet SGDs (Speech Generating Devices) is easier than ever with the support of our Funding Services Department. We break down the funding process into manageable bites, provide clear directions for how to complete necessary paperwork, and are available to answer questions as they arise along the way. AbleNet communication devices, including our new iPad-based QuickTalker Freestyle SGD, qualify for funding from many state Medicaid and Private Insurances, several of our communication devices and accessories also qualify for Medicare. Our team of funding specialists will help determine funding options for your device and step you through the process. Here’s how it works.
AbleNet Funding Process
1. Meet with your doctor about your communication difficulties. Some funders now require a face-to-face visit with your doctor within the previous 6-months of a funding submission. Use this form to document your doctor’s face-to-face visit and SGD prescription.

2. Meet with an SLP to determine the best device. A comprehensive Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) evaluation by your Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) is necessary to determine which SGD best suits your needs now and in the future. The SLP will write a report detailing the findings of the evaluation and rationale for the requested SGD.

3. Get a doctor’s prescription for the requested SGD. Your SLP will forward their report requesting a specific SGD to your doctor for a prescription.

4. Work with AbleNet Funding Specialists to complete the funding packet. Our funding packet includes the necessary documentation for a funding submission. Please be aware that some documents are funder-specific. AbleNet Funding Specialists will answer questions about various insurers and keep you in the loop about additional or state-specific documents throughout the process.

5. AbleNet submits paperwork. When a funding packet is complete and has been deemed to meet criteria for your insurer, it will be submitted to your insurer (Medicaid, Private Insurance, or Medicare). Be aware that funding approvals can take from 30 to 90-days or more. During that time, our Funding Services Specialists welcome your calls to check where your submission is in the process and to provide any feedback possible.

6. Funding Approved, AbleNet ships the device to your door. AbleNet is committed to providing the smoothest, simplest and most effective funding process possible. After receiving your SGD, we are also committed to providing as much supportive service as possible as you learn about your technology and how to integrate it at school, home, work, or community.

Kane’s Story
Kane Fisher was recently introduced to our iPad-based Speech Generating Device (SGD), the QuickTalker Freestyle. He has been without a reliable, intuitive, durable, or loud SGD for the past 28-years following an auto accident that robbed him of clear speech. Yet, Kane has never lost his amazing sense of humor. He is outgoing, smart as a whip, loves to talk, write, tell jokes, and will brighten the day of whoever is lucky enough to be around him for more than a minute.

After successfully getting his QuickTalker Freestyle SGD funded through AbleNet Funding Services, Kane wrote a letter detailing how much his new voice, “Simon”, has changed his world. All of us here at AbleNet share his joy and look forward to hearing from him as he has more adventures in the world of speech with his new partner, Simon.

All the best, Kane!
