VA Dental Insurance Program

U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs

877-222-8387 

https://www.auntbertha.com/health/www.va.gov/healthbenefits/VADIP

VA is implementing a comprehensive national VA Dental Insurance Program (VADIP) to give enrolled Veterans and CHAMPVA beneficiaries the opportunity to purchase dental insurance through Delta Dental and MetLife at a reduced cost. Participation is voluntary. Purchasing a dental plan does not affect Veterans' eligibility for VA dental services and treatment. VADIP opens November 15 for the purchasing of plans, with coverage beginning January 1, 2014.

Covered services include diagnostic, preventative, surgical, emergency and endodontic/restorative treatment. Delta Dental and MetLife are offering multiple plans. Each participant pays the fixed monthly premiums for coverage and any copayments required, depending on the type of plan selected. Dependents of Veterans, except those eligible under CHAMPVA, are not authorized to participate in VADIP. Those individuals may be eligible for separate dental insurance coverage offered by these carriers.

The telephone application option is a more convenient way to apply for enrollment, and eliminates the need for a signed paper application. VA staff members will collect the needed information and process the enrollment application for an enrollment determination.

Oxford Houses of North Carolina

http://oxfordhousenc.org/

336-547-6008

3809 Repon Street, Greensboro, NC, 27407

Oxford House Repon, chartered by Oxford House, Inc., provides a clean and sober housing option for males in recovery. Individuals typically enter an Oxford House after completing a drug and alcohol treatment program. Individuals living in a house are expected to participate in a recovery program in the community during their residence.

Any recovering alcoholic or drug addict can apply to get into any Oxford House by filling out an application and being interviewed by the existing members of the House. 

A recovering individual can live in an Oxford House for as long as he or she does not drink alcohol, does not use drugs, and pays an equal share of the house expenses. The average stay is a little over a year, but many residents stay three, four, or more years. There is no pressure on anyone in good standing to leave.

Some basic house rules are:

• Houses operate democratically, electing house officers who serve six-month terms.
• Houses are financially self-supporting; members split house expenses, which average $90.00 to $130.00 per person per week.
• Any Resident who relapses must be immediately expelled.

It is preferred that Individuals complete a treatment program, depending on what treatment options are available in that area and be drug and alcohol free for 14 days or more (longer is preferred) at the time of application. Generally an individual comes into an Oxford House following a 28-day rehabilitation program or at least 10-day detoxification program. They must also be willing to accept the house rules and expectations, and be able to pay their share of the expenses.

Individuals who are interested in living in an Oxford House should first call the house of their choice to see if there are any vacancies, and if there are some available an interview will be scheduled. The interview with an applicant involves all members of a house. Eighty percent of the house members must vote to accept the applicant as a roommate.

Substance abuse counselors are the primary source of referrals to Oxford Houses. Getting a workable match between the individual and the Oxford House is important, as residents who are disruptive and not serious about recovery can cause serious problems for a house. Counselors can be a big help if they take the time to pre-screen potential referrals, The following criteria are afforded for use.

• Is the individual willing and able to live in a shared housing arrangement?
• Has the individual shown reasonable behavior in an in-patient setting?
• Has the individual thought about his/her own recovery and is he/she determined for recovery?
• Does the individual have a recovery plan when he/she finishes treatment?


Provider Description Oxford Houses of North Carolina is a non-profit publicly supported corporation which acts as an umbrella organization, Oxford House Inc., for the national network of Oxford Houses. It provides quality control by organizing regional Houses into Chapters and by relying heavily upon the national network of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous groups.

Guilford Residential Center provides a comprehensive array of services to adults, both men and women, age 18 plus, coping with addiction and related disorders, providing both high and low intensity residential care and treatment. The Guilford Residential Center is a 24 hour, 365 day per year residential treatment facility for persons with substance abuse issues.

Guilford Residential Center acknowledges that this takes time and as such anticipates a minimum stay of 30 days with the actual length of stay being determined by the persons served progress. During the persons served stay, they will have access to addiction education, an in-depth study of coping mechanisms, group therapy and individual sessions s needed. Family therapy is also available for involved families and significant others.

The primary objectives of this program are to return persons served to a satisfying and productive lifestyle or if they have never experienced a life with turmoil and unhappiness to assist them in learning how to have a life free from addiction, abuse and dissatisfaction. It is up to the person served to determine what they want from life and the staff will assist them in determining if it is reasonable and obtainable.

Guilford Residential Center will not refuse treatment to any Guilford County resident suffering from drug and alcohol addiction because of the inability to pay.

Program referrals can be made by contacting the facility at 336-845- 3988 or visit our location.

iCanConnect - National Deaf-Blind Equipment Distribution Program (NDBEDP)

Phone: 866-874-7280

Website: http://www.icanconnect.org/how-to-participate/north-carolina

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) National Deaf-Blind Equipment Distribution Program (NDBEDP) provides equipment needed to make telecommunications, advanced communications and the Internet accessible for people who have significant combined vision and hearing loss. Through the program, also known as iCanConnect, qualified low-income deaf-blind residents can receive free accessible communications equipment. Installation, training and other technical support, including individual assessments of each consumer's specific accessibility needs, are also available. Each state has one organization certified by the FCC to lead the iCanConnect program.

The goal of iCanConnect is to provide distance communications technology and training for people with combined hearing and vision disabilities, and to increase opportunities for independence for this underserved population to stay connected with family, friends, service providers, and their communities. 

iCanConnect serves people from a wide range of backgrounds, including older people who have lost their sight and hearing later in life, people with Usher and CHARGE Syndromes, and others with combined significant vision and hearing loss who meet federal income guidelines. 

 

Equipment:

Below is an overview of the types of distance communication equipment the program can provide to help people with significant combined hearing and vision loss stay connected to friends, family and the world. iCanConnect professionals in each state and local community will work with individual consumers to identify and install the equipment that addresses each person’s specific need. Note that equipment recommendations are only provided for iCanConnect program participants as part of the individualized assessment they receive.

•Accessories-Includes specialized keyboards, mounts, switches, headsets and other support devices.


•Braille Devices-Braille equipment provided through the iCanConnect program includes a wide variety of refreshable displays and sophisticated multipurpose devices, that enhances access to distance communication. Some can be used as stand-alone devices connected via Wi-Fi, while others are paired with a mobile device to provide tactile access to e-mail, text messaging, and other modern communication resources enjoyed by the general public. To receive braille equipment, an eligible consumer must be proficient in braille and must have access to the internet or cellular service.


•Computers-iCanConnect provides both Windows and Apple computers, including desktops and laptops, to eligible consumers who have Internet access. The program can also provide a large monitor if needed.


•Mobile Devices-Includes cell phones, smartphones, tablets, and associated accessories such as keyboards and protective cases. iCanConnect provides the equipment, but the consumer must pay for his or her own internet or cellular service.


•Phones-Includes a variety of amplified speaker phones, cordless phones, and related devices that connect to the “landline” telephone service. An eligible consumer must have telephone service to be considered for this type of equipment.


•Signalers-Includes audible, visual, and vibrating signalers that alert the user to a phone ringing, new e-mail, or other types of distance communications.


•Software-Includes screen readers and screen magnifier programs. A screen reader can serve as an interface between a computer and a braille display, and for those with usable hearing, it also provides synthesized speech output of what is on the computer screen. The user interacts with the screen reader and the computer via a complex set of keyboard commands. A screen magnifier selectively enlarges what is on the computer screen to enable access by individuals with very limited vision.

Contact your local iCanConnect program to discuss your options, learn more about the program, make a referral or to apply for eligibility or an assessment of your needs. 

To be eligible for iCanConnect, you must have both significant vision and hearing loss, and meet the program’s income guidelines.

-You must provide proof of all household income that does not exceed 400% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines.
-You are automatically income eligible if you can provide documentation that you are currently enrolled in a federal program with an income eligibility requirement that does not exceed 400% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines, such as: Medicaid; Supplemental Security Income (SSI); federal public housing assistance or Section 8; food stamps or Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP); or Veterans and Survivors Pension Benefit.

Video Relay Services by CONVO

https://www.convorelay.com/

510-629-5622 

Description

Convo is a Deaf-owned company, we create signing-centric experiences that feel right to us. We provide video relay service and other communication solutions for Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing people. We provide the most natural and organic VRS experience possible. We come from different places and backgrounds, but there’s one thing we have in common. We communicate our ideas and find solutions in sign language, which influences everything we do. 

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is the regulatory body for VRS in the United States. In addition to overseeing VRS, the FCC also oversees Telecommunications Relay Services (TRS), from which the VRS regulatory framework has evolved. The FCC oversees TRS and VRS as a result of their mandate in the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) to facilitate the provisions equal access to individuals with disabilities over the telephone network. The FCC is an independent government agency overseen by Congress and regulates interstate and international communications by radio, television, wire, satellite and cable. The commission is the United States' primary authority for communications law, regulation and technological innovation. 

Video Relay Service (VRS) is a form of Telecommunications Relay Service that enables persons with hearing disabilities who use American Sign Language to communicate with voice telephone users through video equipment, rather than through typed text, at no cost to the caller. Video equipment links the VRS user with a Telecommunications Relay Services (TRS) operator - called a communications assistant, or CA - so that the VRS user and the CA can see and communicate with each other in signed conversation. 

VRS offers several features:

-VRS allows those persons whose primary language is ASL to communicate in ASL, instead of having to type what they want to say.
-Because consumers using VRS communicate in sign language, they are able to more fully express themselves through facial expressions and body language, which cannot be expressed in text.
-A VRS call flows back and forth just like a telephone conversation between two hearing persons. For example, the parties can interrupt each other, which they cannot do with a TRS call using a TTY (where the parties have to take turns communicating with the CA).
-Because the conversation flows more naturally back and forth between the parties, the conversation can take place much more quickly than with text-based TRS. As a result, the same conversation is much shorter through VRS than it would be through other forms of text-based TRS.
-VRS calls may be made between ASL users and hearing persons speaking either English or Spanish.

VRS is different from some of the other forms of TRS in two important ways: the conversation between the VRS user and the CA is made through a video link and sign language, rather than typed text; and the service relies on the Internet, rather than the telephone system, for the connection between the VRS user and the CA. It is a relatively new service and, unlike some other forms of TRS, it is not mandatory. Here are some things you should know:

-VRS providers must answer 80 percent of all VRS calls within 120 seconds. VRS providers must also offer the service 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
-VRS providers must provide VRS users with a ten-digit number, so the VRS users are able to make 911 calls, and have their location information routed to the appropriate emergency service perfessionals.
-Preferential treatment of calls is prohibited. Both VRS and TRS providers must handle calls in the order in which they are received. They cannot selectively answer calls from certain consumers or certain locations.
-Unlike with some of the other forms of TRS, the VRS CA may not be able to offer or handle some call services, such as operator-assisted calls and 900 (pay-per-call) calls.

Description

ZVRS is a industry leader in communication access services, we pride ourselves on an unwavering commitment to those we serve by providing the very best interpreting services paired with highly innovative products. In particular, customers appreciate access to topnotch professional interpreters, all of whom are highly qualified and follow very high standards of service excellence-above and beyond Federal Communications Commission requirements. They are specially trained to offer customers their preferred mode of communication: voice carry-over, where the deaf or hard of hearing person uses their own voice; interpreting in ASL or English-based signing; or use of both English-based signing and lip reading. As we continue to set the standard within the VRS and telecommunications industry, we strive to change the game because we believe communication access is a right worthy of the utmost respect, and because every conversation matters.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is an independent United States government agency overseen by Congress and regulates interstate and international communications by radio, television, wire, satellite and cable. The commission is the United States' primary authority for communications law, regulation and technological innovation.

Video Relay Service (VRS) is a form of Telecommunications Relay Service that enables persons with hearing disabilities who use American Sign Language to communicate with voice telephone users through video equipment, rather than through typed text, at no cost to the caller. Video equipment links the VRS user with a Telecommunications Relay Services (TRS) operator - called a communications assistant, or CA - so that the VRS user and the CA can see and communicate with each other in signed conversation. 

VRS offers several features:

-VRS allows those persons whose primary language is ASL to communicate in ASL, instead of having to type what they want to say.
-Because consumers using VRS communicate in sign language, they are able to more fully express themselves through facial expressions and body language, which cannot be expressed in text.
-A VRS call flows back and forth just like a telephone conversation between two hearing persons. For example, the parties can interrupt each other, which they cannot do with a TRS call using a TTY (where the parties have to take turns communicating with the CA).
-Because the conversation flows more naturally back and forth between the parties, the conversation can take place much more quickly than with text-based TRS. As a result, the same conversation is much shorter through VRS than it would be through other forms of text-based TRS.
-VRS calls may be made between ASL users and hearing persons speaking either English or Spanish.

VRS is different from some of the other forms of TRS in two important ways: the conversation between the VRS user and the CA is made through a video link and sign language, rather than typed text; and the service relies on the Internet, rather than the telephone system, for the connection between the VRS user and the CA. It is a relatively new service and, unlike some other forms of TRS, it is not mandatory. Here are some things you should know:

-VRS providers must answer 80 percent of all VRS calls within 120 seconds. VRS providers must also offer the service 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
-VRS providers must provide VRS users with a ten-digit number, so the VRS users are able to make 911 calls, and have their location information routed to the appropriate emergency service perfessionals.
-Preferential treatment of calls is prohibited. Both VRS and TRS providers must handle calls in the order in which they are received. They cannot selectively answer calls from certain consumers or certain locations.
-Unlike with some of the other forms of TRS, the VRS CA may not be able to offer or handle some call services, such as operator-assisted calls and 900 (pay-per-call) calls.
-However, you must pick one default provider for ten-digit numbering. No matter who your default TRS provider is, you can choose any VRS provider when making a VRS call.
-The TRS rules do not require you to choose or use only one VRS provider. You can choose any of several different providers of VRS.
-Accepting VRS equipment from one provider does not prohibit you from using another VRS provider on other equipment you may have.
-Equipment distributed by a certified VRS provider must be interoperable with the technology of other certified VRS providers.

Program's Website

The Mobile Meals Program delivers a nutritious noontime meal to homebound senior adults age 60 and over. To be eligible to receive Mobile Meals, the seniors must be unable to prepare a meal for themselves or have no one available to assist them.

The TeleCare Reassurance Program is a telephone support program for seniors that provides regular telephone calls to seniors who may be homebound, living alone or disabled. Other seniors may have health concerns and just want to be checked on to make sure they are well. Many have no relatives or friends living in the area. Often they have minimal contact with their community outside their home.

TeleCare clients are matched with a caring volunteer who calls them regularly. Through this frequent contact, they get to know the client well enough to recognize their need for medical attention, food, transportation, or in-home services. The relationship between volunteer and client often develops into a close friendship.

The Community Nutrition Program provides opportunities for older adults age 60 and over to enjoy a nutritious noontime meal and participate in field trips, health and wellness activities and educational and cultural programs. The nine Community Nutrition Activity Centers located throughout Guilford County are listed below and are open from 9 am to 1 pm, Monday through Friday. Transportation is available.

Older adults in High Point also have the option of participating in Senior Resources of Guilford's restaurant voucher program. Offered in partnership with the Pepper Mill Caf (located at 2600 S. Main Street, High Point, NC), the restaurant voucher program introduces increased choice and flexibility to the Community Nutrition Program by providing 12 vouchers each month for older adults to enjoy a meal in a family-friendly restaurant setting. Participants must be age 60 or older, have their own transportation and agree to participate in health and wellness workshops held at the restaurant twice quarterly.

The Senior Wheels Medical Transportation Program provides rides for seniors age 55 and over who are ambulatory to medical appointments in Guilford County and to regional medical facilities.

Individuals must be ambulatory to receive rides through the Senior Wheels Program.
Volunteer drivers from the faith community provide the rides to scheduled medical appointments.

Foster Grandparents are role models, mentors, and friends to children with exceptional needs. The program provides a way for volunteers age 55 and over to stay active by serving children and youth in their communities. 

Volunteers serve at thousands of local organizations that:

Help children learn to read and provide one-on-one tutoring

Mentor troubled teenagers and young mothers

Care for premature infants or children with disabilities

Help children who have been abused or neglected

All you need to join is the ability to give the kind of comfort and love that sets a child on the path toward a successful future. If you’re 55 or older and want to share your experience and compassion, you have what it takes to be a Foster Grandparent.


Senior Companions provides volunteers aged 55 and over who make a difference by providing assistance and friendship to adults who have difficulty with daily living tasks, such as shopping or paying bills. The program helps these adults remain independent in their homes instead of having to move to more costly institutional care. 

 

The program serves 15 to 40 hours per week helping an average of two to four adult clients live independently in their own homes.

Individual Grant Program 

by the United Breast Cancer Foundation

http://ubcf.org/individual-grant/

The United Breast Cancer Foundation's (UBCF) mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of those affected by breast cancer. We aid in providing screening, treatment, after-care, educational material, patient and family assistance and information. 

Created in 2007 with the intention to financially assist women and men who are managing breast cancer, this program offers customized support geared towards each individual’s personal needs and circumstances. Like our clients, no two grants are ever alike. We understand that breast cancer has a far-reaching affect on every member of the family; therefore, when crafting an Individual Grant, UBCF considers not only the breast cancer patient’s needs, but the needs of the entire family.

After careful and thorough assessment of the client’s needs, UBCF constructs a grant that will best serve the needs of the client, both in the short term and long term. We work closely with each client to find opportunities to lessen or resolve financial burdens. We have found over the years that when our client’s experience a reduction in stress, they are more focused on their healing journey, more capable to manage the challenges of overcoming breast cancer.

Currently, the Individual Grant Program provides financial support for the following types of expenses: medical procedures, prescription medications, COBRA insurance coverage, housing expenses, utilities, prosthetic devices, therapeutic treatments, transportation expenses, vehicle insurance, healthy and nutritious foods, house keeping services and holiday gifts.

Please be advised that the application and review process can take up to 12 weeks. To make the process as smooth as possible please supply all the necessary documentation in your application. All applicants will receive a grant, but have patience in our process!

The Pink Fund

https://www.pinkfund.org/

Phone: 

877-234-7465

A breast cancer diagnosis can destroy the financial health and well-being of the patient and their family. While in active treatment, many patients are unable to work and experience a loss of income that can result in catastrophic financial losses and the need to rebuild financial health. The Pink Fund provides financial support to help meet basic needs, decrease stress levels and allow breast cancer patients to focus on healing while improving survivorship outcomes.

The Pink Fund distributes short-term financial aid, for basic living expenses, on behalf of breast cancer patients who have lost all or a part of their income during active treatment. Payments are made directly to the patient’s creditors.

Short term is defined as a period of up to three consecutive months of non-medical financial assistance with a cap of $3,000, based on available funding. Please note our ability to provide support varies based on the number of qualified applicants and available funding. We suggest you seek out additional resources. Please see our Resources listed to the left.

Basic living expenses considered are health insurance premiums, mortgage or rent payments, car payments, car insurance, utilities and car repairs. The Pink Fund does not make payments for any medical treatments, prescription drugs (including hormone therapy), medical co-pays, insurance deductibles, prostheses, wigs, food, gasoline.

Active treatment is defined as the period after a positive diagnosis of breast cancer has been made (with a diagnostic biopsy), and during which therapies are being administered, including surgical procedures (e.g., single or bi-lateral mastectomy, lumpectomy, axillary dissection or sentinel node biopsy), chemotherapy or radiation. For the purposes of The Pink Fund, active treatment does not include long-term hormonal therapies.

Recovery is defined as a time period determined by your physician and includes a return-to-work date.

Should an applicant qualify, The Pink Fund will make direct payments to the recipient’s creditors. No funds are directed to the recipients themselves. Expenses withdrawn automatically from a bank account will not be considered unless The Pink Fund can make the payment directly to the creditor.

Who does NOT qualify for aid from The Pink Fund?

You do NOT qualify if you were unemployed at the time of your diagnosis, or cannot show a reduction in your income as a result of your diagnosis.
You do NOT qualify if you are currently receiving monthly financial aid through the State and/or Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits (SSDI).
You do NOT qualify if you are retired and receiving a monthly pension check from your former employer and do not require a second job to pay for basic monthly living expenses.
You do NOT qualify if you are working in an unrecognized revenue producing position in which you are currently not paying federal or state taxes, or receiving cash under the table which is not reported to the government

HOTEL LODGING by the American Cancer Society

https://www.cancer.org/treatment/support-programs-and-services/patient-lodging/hotel-partners.html

Call 800-227-2345 to get services.

The American Cancer Society’s mission is to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer.

The American Cancer Society, in a cooperative effort with hotels across the country, provides overnight accommodations to cancer patients who must travel for outpatient treatment and need assistance with lodging. Getting the best care sometimes means cancer patients must travel away from home. This can place an extra emotional and financial burden on patients and caregivers during an already challenging time. We are trying to make this difficult situation easier for both cancer patients and their families through our lodging programs. All accommodations are provided based on eligibility requirements and are subject to availability and to restrictions imposed by the participating hotels. Requests for lodging are met on a first-come, first-served basis.

Although it has become one of the world's most well-known charities, the Make-A-Wish Foundation has maintained the grassroots fulfillment of its mission.

SCAT is the GTA's shared-ride transportation service for eligible riders who have a disability that prevents them from riding the fixed route bus.

There are three types of certification granted to eligible SCAT clients: full, conditional, and temporary certification. Full certification is granted to those who are unable to use the fixed route bus system. Conditional certification is granted to those who are able to use the fixed route bus system, but their disability prohibits 100 percent travel on the bus due to possible barriers for safe travel to or from the bus stop. Temporary certification is granted when a person has a disability that prevents the use of the fixed route bus during the length of their short-term disability. 

A client may be eligible for door-to-door or curb-to-curb service once the application and site assessment review are completed.

To request an application for the SCAT service, please call 336-373-2634 or you can download the application from our website. PART A and PART B must be received for consideration.
