We’ve known for a while that we needed to get Gavin a new adaptive stander. While we have one on loan from the N.E.A.T. Market, the issue is that it’s a little too big and he doesn’t feel comfortable in it because there’s no back to it (the stander makes him lean forward). Problem is when he tones, he does so backwards, where there is very little support to make him feel safe.
Knowing the process to get the new stander would happen after my company changed health insurance companies; I started asking questions weeks prior to ensure we would have benefits for coverage. Without getting into all the details, I was assured that it WOULD be a covered benefit. I checked my benefits summary once enrolled to verify that the stander was INDEED a covered benefit under “Durable Medical Equipment” and was not listed with any “exclusions”.
