Private Insurance Contracts & Assistive Technology: Part II

Description: In this article we will discuss special policy provisions, such as a durable medical equipment provision, which determine what AT items are covered under an insurance policy. Next, we will discuss what criteria must be met for the insurer (i.e., the insurance company or other entity providing insurance) to determine that an AT device is medically necessary. We will then discuss how one appeals a denial of AT by a private insurer. We will close with a limited discussion of the applicability of the Americans with Disabilities Act to private insurance companies.
