How to Make a Referral

The listed rehabilitation technology (RT) evaluation categories are available in RIMS for VR counselors to request services for their customers. More than one service can be requested for a customer. RT services can be requested at any time even during the process of determining eligibility. Other services can also be provided if none of the listed services are aligned with a customer's rehabilitation technology needs. Examples of this might be a customized art easel for a customer to produce artwork.
