Thoughts of learning new equipment, changing your routine, and re-working your insurance tend to cloud your mind and make the process more daunting than promising. An oxygen tank usually isn’t better, but it’s what you know and are used to.

Oxygen concentrators are enticing, but the purchasing process can be the obstacle that stands between you and your new machine. The truth is that the process can be simpler than you’d imagine, and the reward pays off immediately. Learning about the buying process and ordering an oxygen concentrator for sale can all be accomplished in minutes if you have all necessary information ready at hand.

2.  Learn How Insurance Fits In

Inogen’s Customer Representatives are always ready and willing to help patients demystify the process of understanding how insurance and Medicare fit into the equation. Inogen can’t guarantee that everyone will receive full coverage, but Inogen can guarantee that we will try to find the best possible situation for every single customer, whether it’s a portable oxygen concentrator rental or directly purchasing.

Many insurance plans will cover up to 80% of the cost for your oxygen therapy equipment, including Medicare, provided that your doctor confirms that you require it.

Brian Magladry, a Customer Development Representative at Inogen, points out that Inogen has direct access to Medicare and can see how long any patient has been on service with a tank. Inogen checks and verifies coverage and patient financial responsibility.
