Alternate Finance Program
Most individuals with disabilities do not have the private financial resources to purchase the assistive technology devices and services they need. Major service programs such as Medicaid, Medicare, and vocational rehabilitation cannot meet the growing demand for AT devices and services.
In Minnesota, the alternate finance program (AFP) is managed by Equipalife (formerly Assistive Technology of Minnesota). Equipalife provides low interest loans to consumers, their families and employers for the purchase of assistive technology devices and services.
