I am so grateful for this site. There are a lot of benefits that some of you may not be aware of especially for prescription’s. We have some great advocates for us injured workers. My situation: I was assaulted at work over 8 + years ago. WC has treated me like a criminal even though my injury (that was witnessed by another staff member) was by a criminal background who student physically assaulted me. It has been a nightmare, but it will be over soon, hopefully, this year. Anyway, since WC had denied my prescriptions and medical since about 6 months after my injury. My attorney, at the time, instructed me to use my regular work insurance. I did, however, after not being able to work anymore and going on SSD in 2009, all medical went through Medicare and Medicaid. I am not getting the treatment I need, Ketamine for RSD/CRPS. I am searching and working on finding someplace that takes Medicare or some way to get that treatment. More recently, one of my medications were being covered until this January. Without having a transition month, the stopping of this medication was causing sleep problems as well as upset stomach and increased pain. After exhausting almost all possibilities with my doctor and the Aging Resource Disability Center, I contacted Jon Arby and he gave me several resources listed below. If you are getting medications from your doctors and they are billing WC directly. Try the first site below. If you have other meds and have a pet that needs medication the discount card is a cost saver. In my case since my WC has been ignoring and stalling my case I used the Injured Workers Pharmacy. They are awesome! I email them and within 24 hours someone called me. Within 24 hours I received a voice mail and several emails informing me my medication would be sent priority mail within 24 hours. And they sent me priority mail envelope for any new or other prescriptions. I am so grateful I am once again on this medication. I experience a good night rest for the first time since January. My stomach upset is also better and pain is better - just from getting the reprieve of sleep. It pays to ask and investigate what this organization has to offer. Now, if there was some way, I could get the ketamine covered until my case gets settled. That would really be sweet. Once step at a time, currently I feel very blessed and I am so appreciative for the support of this organization. Thank you NAIDW and Jon Arby!
The NAIDW also has drug cards for family and pets...worth getting. You can save 15 to 85% on meds.

Thanking you for your assistance...
After 6hours on the phone with Medicare and the internet resources that you provided me , we finally got Medicare to pay 100% of his Medicare motorized wheelchair. Now, that's a Jazzy Elite, Pride mobility Corp. wheelchair. He got it 2 years ago and it doesn't hold his weight (250lbs.), and is a flimsy wheelchair. So at least he'll have a wheelchair that is operational in case the one that he uses daily a Jazzy Ultra 1103, Pride Mobility Corp. one. This is a heavier and more durable one that he uses daily to walk his dog on pavement and grass and to move about in his small apartment. This one needs serious repairs but Medicare won't repair it because they didn't provide it. I've called all of your referrals' and they won't touch Medicare either because of what " The Scooter Store" did to your industry. A company"Advanced Vehicle Modifications" referred me to Danny from New Motion from Gainesville, Fl. who then referred me to "Precision Repair Network" out of San Diego, California which help us qualify for repairing the Medicare chair (Thank the Lord) . And we should have someone out to access the work shortly. The rest of "All" the other referrals wanted from $75.00 to $225.00 just to come out and access the costs of repairs needed. Crazy....!! The higher one was a company called"Gator Custom Mobility" out of Gainesville, Fl. Plus 20%out of pocket with Medicare. I mentioned"Abilities Expo" and they had no idea what I was talking about......I have a prescription from his Dr. to get someone to look at his wheelchair but nobody seems to care about that. If you can help us in any way to get the motorized wheelchair that he uses daily fixed with very little out of pocket pls call me. That's the one we need fixed asap. It's the Jazzy Elite 1103, which needs tires, a fixed controller key pad, seat mounting bracket and a general tune up....!! It's 8 years old.
I will be keeping notes on all my contacts and providers and writing an " Editorial" in the Miami Herald" and the Ocala Banner to make people aware of this disability subject and resources. I look forward to writing how much you've been a great source of help and guidance during this nightmare.

Disability has become a dirty word in America and we need to stop this stigma. Where there was once compassion, there is now apathy. Where there was once assistance through various programs, there is only denials and mistreatment. Where there was once community to help take care of those in need, we now live in a digital society where community is in cyberspace. NAIDW is going to make a change to the stigma of disability and all mentioned. As one of those who need help and receive none, I have hope for the first time in nearly 20 years that there is going to be change and the NAIDW is the reason for that hope. Please help the NAIDW and the millions of Americans and their families who are struggling because of a disability and the many problems it brings. Let's not leave anyone behind anymore in America! We need the NAIDW just like we have needed for organizations such as AARP, Unions etc. Where there is need, there is someone willing to step up to the plate and the NAIDW has done just that. Please help all the AMERICANS who are injured & disabled.

Had I never been injured, I would not have known first hand the plight of Injured Workers.
I would not have known of this website (NAIDW) and how it brings people together – not only as a support system for Injured/Disabled Workers but an avenue to work toward a Positive CHANGE of this SYSTEM for ALL workers.
Be Encouraged and NEVER GIVE UP!
