Frequently Asked Questions
Who is eligible for assistance?
The A.V. Hunter Trust provides funding toward the purchase of durable medical equipment and limited dental services for legal residents of Colorado. The mission of Funds for One is to assist those who lack the financial resources to obtain vital equipment and dental care.
What kind of assistance is available from Funds for One at the A.V. Hunter Trust?
Funding is available toward a wide range of durable medical equipment such as wheelchairs, standing frames, braces, prostheses, and smaller items including eyeglasses and hearing aids. Minor modifications to homes or vehicles owned by the Client (ramps, lifts, etc.) are also considered. In addition, four specific dental procedures are eligible: fillings, extractions, partials, and dentures.
What does not qualify for funding?
Just as if you were working with an insurance company, purchases or services must be preapproved by the A.V. Hunter Trust in order to be eligible for payment. The A.V. Hunter Trust cannot pay or reimburse vendors or dentists for equipment or services ordered or provided prior to notification of an award from Funds for One.
An individual may only receive assistance one time. If you have already received an award from the A.V. Hunter Trust, you are no longer eligible.
