The South Dakota Medicaid Reuse Program
DakotaLink has contracted with the South Dakota Department of Social Services, Division of Medical Services to establish a program for the reuse of durable medical equipment and other Assistive Technology Devices commonly purchased for individuals eligible for Medicaid. The intent of this program is to use Medicaid funding in a more efficient and effective manner by recycling and reusing equipment that is no longer needed by the original recipient. A pilot program site has been established in Sioux Falls, SD as a first step toward evolving into a statewide resource. For more information contact Merrinfo@dakotalink.net or call 605-271-5074 or 866-274-2594. The Brochure for the program can be downloaded from here: BROCHURE
