Advocacy & Funding

USSAAC Leaders & Legends: Lew Golinker

Today we honor, Lew Golinker! As an attorney and advocate, Lew Golinker has been instrumental in advocating for funding of speech-generating devices for people who use AAC in the United States. He was a key figure in the development of the funding mechanism for speech-generating devices through Medicare and Medicaid opening access to thousands of people who were and are in need of equipment. At the same time, Lew is a generous person, happy to advocate for anyone who's experienced an insurance denial for a speech-generating device. We can't overstate our gratitude to Lew for helping our community. Read more to learn about Lew's experiences as an attorney advocating for decades for people who use AAC.
