This fund will cover any expenses to get a head array running on my wheelchair because Medicare is unlikely to cover it.

I am Alin S I have Rett Syndrome and Cerebral Palsy and have worsening spasticity and control in my upper body. The sad truth is that Medicare and Medicaid do not cover alternative drive controls for a wheelchair until you cannot use the standard drive controls at all. Which means total immobility and being bedridden until they authorize it. This is wrong! Medicare and Medicaid often even then will not cover such devices instead forcing people like me to use dependent manual wheelchair bases which is fine when I am completely incapacitated but when I want some sort of independence a head array is the key to that and Medicare and Medicaid don't care. Any funds placed here will immediately be dispatched for the purchase of components to get the head array that I got donated to me up and running on my wheelchair. Should a miracle happen and Medicare or Medicaid cover these components all funds from this fundraiser will be moved to the Heating & Air Conditioner fundraiser OR the Making my house accessible fundraiser. You may also request the funds be refunded for a period of 7 days after the notification that it has been covered by Medicare or Medicaid.
