Alberta Aids to Daily Living benefits
Benefits provided through Alberta Aids to Daily Living (AADL) include:
* Equipment might not be new
** All seniors in Alberta who receive prosthetic, orthotic, mastectomy prosthesis and eye prosthesis benefits through the AADL program receive these benefits at no cost. This includes seniors who are currently receiving these benefits as well as those who will be applying for them in the future.
What's not covered
AADL does not provide coverage for foot orthotics, eyeglasses, prescription drugs, dental care or dentures. Seniors may be eligible for financial assistance with these items through other programs.
Equipment and supplies
Once assessed by an AADL Authorizer, clients will be provided with a list of up to 3 AADL approved vendors from which to obtain medical equipment or supplies.
If clients are assessed by a specialty supplier, they will supply the benefit.
A maximum number of benefits are available each year. AADL will review requests for more than the maximum number through an appeal.
Some benefits may be upgraded to a more expensive item, but you are responsible for paying the additional amount. If you have any questions or concerns about this, please speak to your authorizer or specialty supplier.
