Who are we?
ALS M&D is a partial operation of the ALS Liga. One of the reasons for the foundation (2007) of this separate service are the long waiting times at the governmental agencies. Due to the administrative burden in the public institutions, people with ALS often have to wait too long to get their assistive devices. These assistive devices are therefore not available for the patient, whose condition evolves continuously.
In addition, you must be registered with the concerned institutions before your 65th birthday in order to claim interventions and/or reimbursements for the purchase of assistive devices. If you are affected by ALS and you’re older than 65 years old, you have to bear the cost yourself.
