What are waivers?
Aside from charities, waivers are an alternative funding option that can help you fund a Cubby Bed. Waivers are funding programs that are available in each US state and allow your loved one to receive products or services that are not traditionally covered by your insurance/Medicaid. This includes safety beds like the Cubby Bed! The good news is that Cubby Beds have been covered and paid for by Medicaid waivers in 20+ states! 🎉

Every waiver has a different funding pathway. To get the ball rolling, we need to confirm the following information below:
✅ Is your waiver under the category of assistive technology, specialized medical equipment, home modifications, or safety equipment?
✅ Is it required to have a ‘denial’ from your insurance/Medicaid before funds can be applied? This is very common.
