Medicare Help Funding Wheelchair Vans
Medicare grants were created by the US government to help not only senior citizens, but disabled persons as well with their medical needs. Funding is provided by Medicare on a state by state basis. Often funding can at least be partially attained for the ramp itself.
There are also other organizations out there that are willing to help. Listed below are just a few national organizations. For more financing options such as grants, loans, and other help funding, visit our mobility finance information page.

NTAF Emergency Grant Program
The NTAF Emergency Grant Program helps patients who have exhausted all other resources by providing them with a one-time grant. Categories of grant payments include: a month of medications or medication co-pays; gaps in Medicare coverage; relocation housing following transplantation; donor expenses; one month payment of primary residence rent or mortgage for transplant patients who have had to relocate; and adaptive equipment or ramps for spinal cord injury patients. Social workers or financial coordinators should call NTAF and speak with a Patient Services Coordinator who will help determine a patient's eligibility for this limited program.
