Should I Apply?


The equipment I need is less than $1,000, but I can't afford to pay that all at once.
The direct loan program offered through ABLE Tech allows someone to borrow a small amount of money to purchase less expensive assistive technology, and still make monthly payments. It is coordinated directly with OkAT Foundation, ABLE Tech's non-profit partner, offering much lower loan fees, low interest rate, and flexible repayment terms.

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.

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 the ability to make monthly loan payments based on income and monthly expenses.

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.
