Funding Vehicle Modifications

Here are a few items to consider when funding a new vehicle purchase:

Are you eligible for funding sources through the Department of Veteran's Affairs, Social Security's PASS program, your state's division of vocational rehabilitation, development disabilities services, worker's compensation or health insurance?

Many private insurance companies cover driver rehabilitation programs; some driver's insurance may cover vehicle modification.

Have you checked with a qualified accountant to determine eligibility for tax credits for modifications?

Have you checked with the manufacturer for information on a rebate program to help pay for modifications?

Chrysler, Ford and General Motors all have reimbursement programs for vehicle modification costs.
