Financial Asssistance Beyond Insurance & Medicaid

Below is a listing of a few national organizations that that may offer some funding for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. Another idea to cover costs may be to inform your local DS association about the benefits HBOT provides for children and adults with DS. (I'll be adding more research-based info soon.) Perhaps a fundraiser could be organized to allow the group to purchase a chamber for communal use.

The Oxford HBOT Kids Foundation
