An application for an aid or technical working aid is always made in writing.
The important thing is,
- to make the application before the purchase or a barrier-free building measure and
- to wait for approval.
Different documents are required depending on the cost unit.
Usually the application includes
- a medical prescription with a detailed and comprehensible justification
- any expert reports or discharge report from the rehabilitation clinic and
- at least one cost estimate.
If it is an application for workplace equipment, additional proof/copies must usually be submitted such as
- Assessment notice on the degree of disability
- Severely disabled person's pass
- Employment contract and job description
Please note that medical aids are not included in the budget of the doctors. The applicant should point this out if doctors refuse to prescribe medical aids due to a limited number of prescriptions.
The cost estimate can be obtained from a service provider (e.g. a medical supply store) or a company that manufactures or sells occupationally relevant aids or technical work aids.
