Vermont Medicaid funds iOS devices (iPods/iPads/iPad Minis), as AAC devices. For Medicaid to fund an iOS tool as a communication device, an SLP, who is a Medicaid provider, must conduct a 30-day trial and submit the appropriate paperwork with the Department of Vermont Health Access (DVHA). To see the procedures that Medicaid requires, please visit the Department of Vermont Health Access’s complete packet on Augmentative Communication. The Clinical Form for a Speech Generation Device Evaluation is found under DVHA’s Clinical Forms and Prior Authorization forms for Durable Medical Equipment.
