No. 10: Rehabilitative/habilitative services, devices
Rehabilitative services, such as physical and speech therapy, help you improve or regain skills that have been lost or impaired because of injury or illness. Habilitative services help with a longer-term issue, such as a speech impediment. Many health plans didn't cover habilitative services before health care reform. This essential benefit also includes related medical devices, such as a walker if you've suffered a stroke.
