What We Do

Assist ME collects gently used wheelchairs and other medical mobility equipment and provides it to uninsured or underinsured patients in Charlotte, NC who are unable to obtain these vital resources upon hospital discharge.

We believe that regaining mobility is not just about physical independence, but also about rejoining the community and regaining income potential. 

Interesting Info
  • Did you know that 15% of Mecklenburg County adults are uninsured? That’s more than 100,000 people.
  • Did you know that Medicaid doesn’t cover health care costs for adults who may earn income above Medicaid coverage limits, yet below the poverty level?
  • Did you know that it can take up to 6 months for Medicaid to approve coverage of prescribed mobility equipment? Waiting for approval delays recovery.
