Assistive Technology Appeals: Medical Assistance
The Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) runs the Medical Assistance (MA) program. There are different ways you could be getting your coverage:
- You can get MA directly from the DHS. This is called fee-for-service Medical Assistance.
- You also can be on MA but get your health benefits through a private health plan. This is called managed care.
- Some people on MA get extra services through home and community-based waiver programs. Waiver programs are run by the county.
All 3 programs fund assistive technology.
