AAC Funding

Speech generating devices (SGDs) may be funded using private health insurance, Medicare, and/or Medicaid.  Medicaid is the provider of last resort, so funding must be sought through other funding options first. 

At this time, Wyoming State Medicaid provides coverage for individuals on the Medicaid Waiver under the category of specialized equipment. The Wyoming Assistive Technology Resources (WATR) is working with the Wyoming State Medicaid Plan regarding benefit and coverage of SGDs as durable medical equipment.  If you or a client have been denied coverage and need further assistance please contact Terri Wofford at twofford@uwyo.edu 

Most SGD manufacturers offer assistance with the funding process and provide templates for report writing through the manufacturers funding department. 

If you need additional assistance, please contact Terri Wofford at twofford@uwyo.edu or 307-766-2932.
