Assistive Devices Program has Resumed Processing Applications

Communication from the Assistive Devices Program (ADP) on April 29, 2020 confirms  that in response to the evolving situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, the ADP will temporarily accept applications for ADP-funded devices via fax and for ADP grants via email.  Applications must not be mailed to the ADP office.  Applications that were previously received by mail are being processed and must not be resubmitted.  ADP-registered vendors can use ADP policies to make informed decision on eligibility of new claims and continue to provide assistive devices before receiving approval.

  • Note :  Please include only one (1) application per fax (including attachments, for example, quotations for repairs, where applicable).  The temporary fax-based submission process works most efficiently when one application is submitted per fax, allowing for faster adjudication and  PLEASE DO NOT include cover letters, except where the application is being resubmitted due to a correction.  Faxes are received in a dedicated, virtual fax system, not on paper.  Additional pages reduce efficiency for vendors and for ADP.

ADP Authorizers will have received communication from the ADP.  During the pandemic period, OSOT is wishing to monitor members' ability to complete seating and mobility assessments to support ADP applications.  We invite member input sharing whether you are able to conduct in-person assessments as needed or otherwise - forward your input to osot@osot.on.ca.  The Society has engaged a working group to support planning and guidance for assessments during this pandemic period.
