positioning devices (e.g. cushions, back and head supports, power tilt and recline)

You can apply to replace your mobility aid if:
Your medical condition and/or functional ability has changed
and your current mobility aid no longer meets your needs
Your body size has changed and your current mobility aid no longer fits
The mobility aid is worn out, no longer covered by warranty
and cannot be repaired at a reasonable cost
ADP does not cover costs to replace a lost mobility aid or to repair aids damaged through misuse or neglect.
Equipment sold at Comfort Mobility Inc. has a limited warranty against manufacturer defects.
How much is covered
ADP will pay 75% of the ADP price for mobility aids. You must pay the remaining 25% of the cost.
When ADP sets the ADP price for each mobility aid, they take into account:
Manufacturer’s and/or distributor’s costs
Complexity of device
A business can’t charge you more than the ADP price for the approved device.
You have to pay for additional items not covered by the ADP
(e.g. add-on accessories, batteries for power wheelchairs, etc.)
Getting 100% coverage
The ADP covers 100% of the cost, if you receive financial support from one of these programs:
Ontario Disability Support Program
Assistance for Children with Severe Disabilities
Note: If you have Green Shield, Comfort Mobility Inc. can bill
directly for the remaining portion if your benefits cover it.
So How Do I Get Started?
A formal Assessment by an Occupational Therapist or Physiotherapist
registered as an ADP Authorizer is required. (Fee for Assessment to be paid directly to Therapist)
This will confirm that you need a mobility aid and determine which type best suits your needs.
ADP Application must be completed by you and your Therapist.
We Comfort Mobility Inc. will then fill your prescription based on the Therapist's application.
What happens next
ADP aims to review your application within eight weeks of receiving it.
If you order or buy the mobility aid(s) before we have completed our review, and your application is denied, you are responsible for the full cost.
If your application has been denied, you will receive a letter from us telling you the reason for the denial and how you can follow up, including appealing our decision.
If your application is approved, ADP will contact your vendor and Occupational Therapist/Physiotherapist by mail. They will contact you and arrange a time for your mobility aid to be delivered if it has not already been provided.
When you get the mobility aid(s), you must pay your 25% share. We pay the vendor the 75% separately.
