The new agreement will enter into force on 1 October 2014 and all existing authorisation agreements will expire on that date. All recipients registered by ADP must sign the new agreement with the program in order to maintain their registration with ADP. The first access is often through a specialist or general practitioner who makes a diagnosis. In most categories of devices, a consensor assesses the specific needs of the person and imposes appropriate equipment or stocks. Finally, a seller sells the equipment or delivery to the customer. Most devices must be licensed by a qualified healthcare professional registered for the program. Registered persons work in hospitals, secret care agencies or private practices. The ADP replaces its current agreement with the ADP registered amgregress. The new agreement: ADP includes more than 8,000 separate pieces of equipment or accessories in the following categories: prostheses; wheelchairs/mobility aids and special seats; enteral food reserves; Monitors and tests bands for insulin-dependent diabetics (through an agreement with the Canadian Diabetes Association); hearing aids; insulin pumps and accessories; respirators; orthotists (dental appliances), pressure modification devices for burns and lymphedema (clothing and pumps); visual and communication tools; Oxygenation at home. The equipment covered by the programme must enable people with physical disabilities to increase their independence through access to tools that meet their individual needs. The right includes any resident of Ontario who has a valid Ontario health card issued in their name and has a physical disability of six months or more. The equipment cannot be used exclusively for sports, work or school.
ADP does not pay for equipment available under the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board or group “A” veterans for their retirement benefits. There are specific authorisation criteria applicable to each category of apparatus. In most cases, the customer pays part of the fee at the time of purchase and the seller charges ADP for the balance. ADP registered suppliers receive payments related to invoices that have been submitted for approved claims and are entitled to pay. A person suffering from a chronic illness or dysfunction requiring long-term oxygenation may be eligible for home oxygen funding. The program only helps to pay for devices purchased by providers registered in the help program. ADP pays up to 75 percent of the costs of devices such as artificial limbs, orthopedic dental appliances, wheelchairs and breathing aids.. . . .
