Cost-share and cost-share exemption

Costs paid by clients and AADL program

Alberta Aids to Daily Living (AADL) is a cost-share program. Clients pay 25% of the cost of program benefits, up to a maximum of $500 per family per benefit year (July 1 to June 30).

For some benefits, clients may choose an upgraded item and must pay the additional cost of this item. These additional costs are not included in the $500 cost-share maximum.

Cost-share exemption

Low-income Albertans may be exempt from the $500 cost-share. You can apply for a cost-share exemption from AADL directly with the Cost-Share Exemption form.

Seniors and their Adult Dependents requiring hearing aids can apply for cost-share exemption by filling out the Hearing Aid Benefit Cost-Share Exemption Application for Seniors and Their Adult Dependents.

If your financial situation has recently changed or you have extraordinary expenses related to your disability, you may be eligible for temporary cost-share exemption. You can apply for temporary cost-share exemption by filling out the Temporary Cost-Share Exemption form.
