Funding & FAQ

Available funding for medical supplies and equipment

Medical and assistive devices can be costly, but help is available. If you have a long-term disability, you may qualify to get financial assistance from the Ontario Assistive Devices Program (ADP) and other third-party payers.

OMS is an authorized ADP vendor for:
Wheelchairs
Positioning devices for mobility aids
Mobility/Ambulation aids
Enteral feeding grant program
Respiratory devices
Oxygen
Check your private insurance coverage to see if they will reimburse some or all of the costs for medical supplies and equipment for your medical issue. Additionally, medical and assistive devices are eligible for tax credits or exemptions, and you can often claim medical expenses on your provincial tax return.
Support icon Supporting you so you can focus on what’s important

Sorting through all the funding available and managing the application process can be an additional burden for those who have or care for people with a disability. If you or your client qualifies for one of the available financial assistance programs, OMS can bill major third-party payers directly on your behalf. The supportive team at Ontario Medical Supply can walk you through the application process and assist with document preparation if required.

OMS also offers short term rentals to support clients while they wait for funding to go through or require support for a short period of time.
