With no specific facility within the VA to identify the veterans that will benefit from this assistive technology, IndeeLift has prepared a process that will assist any disabled and mobility-challenged veteran to seek to receive a PPU for their home.
IndeeLift has created this informational packet to help you determine if you qualify for an IndeeLift and if so, to help streamline the process to obtain an IndeeLift via the VA.
How do I know if I qualify to receive an IndeeLift via the Veterans Affairs?
To receive an IndeeLift prescribed and funded by the VA, you must meet certain criteria, i.e., you are enrolled in VA healthcare, disabled with mobility challenges, or you are prone to falls and are unable to get back up on your own. A diagnosis of any of the degenerative musculoskeletal disorders (such as Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, Parkinson’s, Myositis, or paraplegia, etc.) or you have mobility challenges due to loss of limb or other physical failure of your body.
I believe I qualify for an IndeeLift and that it will make a difference in not only my life but would benefit my spouse or caregiver and/or reduce or eliminate calls to 911/EMS to help me get up. What’s next?
