SAMi Funding Guide

Some users have been able to successfully obtain reimbursement from insurance for SAMi, unfortunately though, it's pretty uncommon and we've heard it can be an uphill battle. This is true not just for SAMi, but many other similar monitors and wearables - even those with FDA approval. 

Luckily, there are many private organizations out there that  exist to fill this gap, providing funding for devices like ours when insurance typically won't (regardless of income level!). Below you'll find a list of these organizations, as well as instruction on how to secure your SAMi through them.

Cost should never stand between you and the technology you need to stay safe, or improve your quality of life. If you are in need of additional help, or have questions, don't hesitate to send us a chat or contact us by emailing

The Danny Did Foundation

"We’ve been working closely with SAMi for nearly 10 years now. During that time, our device grant program has helped over 750 epilepsy patients and caregivers to secure SAMi Kits.

We believe intervention during a seizure event may reduce the risk of SUDEP, reduce injuries, and allows caregivers to provide seizure first aid."

Tom Stanton, President
Mary Duffy, Executive Director

The Chelsea Hutchison Foundation

" The SAMi The Sleep Activity Monitor has been an excellent option for many families… Imagine being able to show your neurologist or epileptologist exactly what is happening at night.

I've known the Andersons (inventors of SAMi) for over 10 years now and together we've helped hundreds of parents sleep a little safer with effective night-time monitoring

Julie Hutchison, Founder and CEO

Jon Shaw Foundation

"We are really excited about working with the Anderson family to produce and place the SAMi Kit in the hands of young people living with epilepsy in the UK.

SAMi continues to bring peace of mind to these families, who know SAMi will alert them if needed at night."

Wendy Shaw, Founder and CEO

Medicaid Waivers

State Grants and waivers provide financial assistance for specific medical or developmental needs. This is to help families like yours access necessary medical equipment, such as SAMi. They are run by individual States, so eligibility requirements and programs may vary.

Health Savings Accounts

Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) are tax-advantaged savings accounts designed to help individuals and families cover qualified medical expenses. They can be used to purchase a SAMi directly through our website. If insurance denied your approval or you simply don’t want to wait, then this is a great option.

Insurance + Medicaid

Although SAMi has many benefits for families, insurance will typically only reimburse a device like ours for significant safety concerns or other well documented behaviors that could cause injury. In our experience, most SAMi customers have purchased SAMi directly and submitted their claim directly to insurance. 

Here is some information you may need when submitting to insurance:

- CPT or HCPC Code: E1399
- NPI: 1437562881
- SAMi Legal Name: HiPass Design LLC
- FEIN: 45-4602935

It may be helpful to include links to articles written about SAMi as well as our website to supplement.

Private Pay

The quickest way to get your SAMi is to purchase directly through our website.

We accept various payment methods, and have partnered with Affirm and ShopPay to offer 0% APR financing to most who apply. These options are available at checkout.
