People with very different backgrounds and wide range of experience need information about SGD funding. You can get complete details on funding at the following website: AAC Funding Help

This web page will help SLPs, advocates, people with severe disabilities and their family members, funding program staff, and decision makers. It is designed to be of benefit to those who are confronting SGD funding questions for the first time, as well as those with prior funding experience. This page provides information useful to each of these diverse populations interested in SGD funding.

USSAAC Board Member Lew Golinker did a webinar on February 8, 2018 on Medicaid SGD Funding Update: Current Developments and Issues:

SGD funding by health benefits and other sources has been ongoing since the the mid-to-late 1970s, when SGDs were introduced for use by individuals with complex communication needs.  Most often, funding sources have accepted SGDs as covered benefits without conflict or dispute.  On the other hand, some funding sources accepted SGDs as covered benefits only as a result of administrative or court appeals. 

Copies of significant funding decisions are posted here.
