  1. Access-Ability is an organization committed to getting the right medical equipment to patients that need it the most, but may not have the means to purchase it themselves. Some may have found that their insurance does not provide the coverage they need for the equipment. Access-Ability is able to provide their services because of the monetary donations, equipment donations, and volunteers from the community.
