State Resources

Here is a State by State resource list of government and non-government organizations and programs that may be helpful when looking for assistance in paying for a wheelchair accessible shower. Each state has subsections with links to info on financing, state Medicaid waivers, donation locations and more.

Assistive Technology Project - Every state receives a grant to fund a state program that provides services to persons with disabilities to learn about and have access to Assistive Technology.  Assistive Technology is any item, piece of equipment, or product system, whether acquired commercially, modified, or customized, that is used to increase, maintain, or improve functional capabilities of individuals with disabilities.

EXAMPLES: Walkers, patient lifts, electronic communication devices, special-purpose computers, wheelchair accessible showers

Assistive Technology Financing - Every state has its own program that offers financing to persons with disabilities to help them obtain purchasing Assistive Technology.

State Medicaid Waivers - The Shower Bay has been approved in varying states on a case by case basis under its state's Medicaid Waiver.  The State Medicaid Waiver is different in every state and not everyone qualifies. Please reach out to us and we can try and assist with information on the process.
Unfortunately, the Shower Bay is NOT covered by Medicare.  The State Medicaid Waiver sometimes has more flexibility on approving products.

Equipment Loan Closet - What do you do if you no longer need your Shower Bay?  Most customers will try and resell the shower on a used DME website but others will donate to an Equipment Loan Closet so that the Shower Bay can continue to help others have access to a safe shower.
