Should I Apply?


OkAT - for over $2,500

I can't qualify for a financial loan because I had to file bankruptcy due to medical expenses.
A bankruptcy due to medical-related expenses will not necessarily disqualify you from the program. Our non-profit partner will review your application for special guaranty consideration. Applicants are reviewed on a case-by-case basis to determine their ability to make monthly loan payments based on income and monthly expenses..

I need a modified vehicle and don't know what my options are.
This loan can be used to purchase a new or used modified vehicle or to acquire funding to modify your current vehicle. It may also be used to fill the gap with other public or private funding sources, such as the Department of Rehabilitation Services or Developmental Disability Services.

My insurance out-of-pocket / co-pay for my prescribed durable medical equipment is more than I can afford.
This loan can assist with medical co-pays and/or deductibles for equipment that is considered assistive technology. A quote or invoice for your portion of the cost is required with your application; if approved, payment will be made to the vendor.
