Funding Guide to Standing Technology

Obtaining funding for a standing frame can be a challenging task, depending on what state you live in, your insurance coverage, and your persistence. Over the years Altimate Medical has helped thousands of people through the funding process for standing equipment. We understand the health benefits that standing brings to people who use wheelchairs for mobility, and know that it is worth the fight.

As a result, the Funding Guide to Standing Technology was created. Originally in a print version, now (many years and many versions later) we are becoming more environmentally-conscious, and are offering the funding guide online. The Funding Guide to Standing Technology is meant to assist you with the entire process in obtaining your standing equipment. From understanding the steps to obtaining a stander, to writing a letter of medical necessity, to starting the appeals process, our funding guide is a wealth of information and resources to help you get the standing equipment that you deserve.
