Finding the Right Adaptive Equipment Dealer
Choosing an adaptive equipment provider is an important decision that should not be made without adequate information. Be sure to ask about credentials, experience, warranty coverage and service after the sale. Your Ford Dealer can help. Feel free to discuss your options with your Ford Dealer before you make your decision.
Ford recommends you choose an adaptive equipment dealer that has been accredited by the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA).
National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association
NMEDA is a non-profit organization composed of dealers, automotive manufacturers, rehabilitation professionals and mobility equipment providers that encourage professionalism and work to establish national guidelines, standards and best practices for the vehicle accessibility industry.
NMEDA's Quality Assurance Program (QAP) is a nationally recognized accreditation program for the adaptive mobility equipment industry. As such, the companies involved have been certified to comply with NMEDA quality control processes, have the proper insurance and have obtained the applicable training from the adaptive equipment manufacturers they represent.
To be eligible for reimbursement, eligible equipment must be installed by either:
- Ford Quality Vehicle Modifier (QVM) participant (required for structural vehicle modifications)
- National Mobility Equipment Dealer Association (NMEDA) member
- Modifier holding current National Safety Mark (NSM) with Transport Canada
