Benefits of AT Reuse

What is AT Reuse?

Benefits Of Reuse

  • Provides free or low-cost refurbished equipment on a permanent basis when funding is limited or there is no insurance coverage.
  • Helps keep our homes and storage spaces green by reusing unused equipment; great for the environment.
  • Provides interim equipment on a short-term basis while waiting for approval from insurance or a repair to existing equipment.
  • Helps bridge the gap between what will benefit the user, and what the insurance company will cover due to annual coverage limits and higher DME deductibles.
  • Provides tax benefits (write-offs) for donors of used equipment and makes a positive impact on health care costs.
  • Saves dollars for both the state and consumers by ensuring equipment is being used for the full value of its lifecycle.
  • Solves the issue of greater difficulty in qualifying for AT/DME authorizations and provides for duplicate devices in warranted situations (i.e., both a manual and power wheelchair).

“Independent Living Center let me borrow legs (that electric wheelchair) until I get mine back. In other words, they gave me my life back! Independent Living Center has a program that allows people to donate any type of equipment to help people in need of equipment so they can live independently, like me.”
