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. 

As of April 1, 2022, WY Medicaid will now cover costs associated with Speech Generating Devices (SGDs).  You can access the details listed in the WY DME Manual beginning on page 96. This coverage will increase access to communication for many Wyoming residents.

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

Please do not hesitate to contact Terri Wofford at twofford@uwyo.edu or 307-766-2932 should you need assistance along the way.
