Many Americans would love the luxury of having walk in bathtubs installed in their homes but what holds many of us back is the initial installation that can be very costly.
Thanks to a little-known government program called the Medicaid Advantage Plan (MAP), many families are now able to deduct a high percentage of the cost of installing walk in bathtubs.
Depending on your area, you may be able to put $0 down for the installation based on the upfront costs.
Whats The Catch?
That’s the best part about this program, there isn’t any. What helps to make sense of this whole thing, is coming to the understanding that the government wants you to use this home modification program for these reasons:
• You can utilize to prevent, diagnose, or treat a disease or injury
• You better the functional and/or psychological effect of physical/health issues
• You maintain/regain independence in the bathroom
• You reap financial rewards
In April of 2018, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced the expansion of health related supplemental benefits through Medicare Advantage (MA) plans. Unlike the federal government’s Medicare program, Medicaid programs vary by state. So the rules and regulations for obtaining walk-in tub financial assistance may vary depending on where you live.
High Stakes, Huge Opportunity
What’s at stake is nothing less than our basic rights to life, health, choice and freedom itself. When finally understood, this program is truly a great opportunity to claim power back into the hands of the people.
Whether you love the house you’re currently in or have plans to build a home that’s more accommodating, there are many different home modification programs you can choose to implement.
Keep rebate expiration periods in mind. Not all programs are ongoing for years at a time. Some have cut-off dates; you must have your tub installed and functioning before the deadline in order to qualify for rebates.
