Subject: help with funding for mattress -- funding through Medicaid
Consumer has arthritis in his back, has a prescription from his doctor
for an extra-firm mattress without pillow top. Both the doctor and the
physical therapist highly recommend this for the client. However,
Medicaid flattly refuses to fund this.
Consumer has a source where he can get the mattress but no funding.
Does anyone know of any other funding sources or any suggestions that
