Procurement

In the United States, a Government Program called, the Medicare, is responsible for purchasing these Health Aids for those in the Program. But non-members will have to foot the bills if they are able. The same or similar methods operate in many other Countries.

What the Health Care Program needs is a prescription from a Doctor or qualified Health Care provider who examined the problem and recommended suitable equipment for the patient.

The few problems with this program are: 1) not every person can qualify for the benefits 2) In some situations, the co-payments may be too high for the patient to pay, and 3) there might be waiting periods, during which disaster could occur.
