Full text
25.1. Where a children’s depth-adjustable, height-adjustable, 4-wheeled walker with thoracic support is furnished to an insured person and has already been returned to an institution or laboratory in accordance with the second paragraph of section 13, the total cost assumed by the Board for all of the following services is the price fixed in the Tariff:
(1)  the recovery of the walker, the safety check and cleaning, after it has been returned, providing it to another insured person; and
(2)  administrative and inventory management services.
Furthermore, the Board shall assume the purchase or replacement cost of such a walker only if no other walker, which had already been paid for by the Board or by the Office des personnes handicapées du Québec, was recovered by an institution or laboratory and none is available for the insured person. For that purpose, subject to section 12, the institution or laboratory must repair the walker or have it repaired as soon as it has been recovered to make it available for the insured person.
