Inogen Awarded Department of Veterans Affairs Contract

Inogen just secured a federal supply contract to offer portable oxygen therapy systems to federal agencies and patients served by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and all other federal government agencies.

This contract allows the Inogen One to be sold and distributed through the GSA Advantage buying group, which is operated by the U.S. General Services Administration. By securing this federal supply contract, Inogen will be able to provide its award-winning oxygen concentrator to thousands of veterans across the nation.

For thousands of veterans, this means better access to the Inogen One and the freedom and independence it provides. The Inogen One is covered by a three-year limited warranty on parts and workmanship to the Department of Veterans Affairs and all other government agencies.

Inogen One offers users an unparalleled level of convenience without the limitations of traditional oxygen tanks. Now oxygen therapy patients covered by the VA medical program or another federal agency can enjoy the Inogen One lifestyle and eliminate the worry of running out of oxygen.

Thanks to this supply contract, veterans and oxygen therapy patients in all 50 states will be able to experience the freedom and quality of life that the Inogen One delivers.

    I hope I am covered by the VA to get a battery portable oxygen unit that I will be able to carry. I have the aluminum cylinder type and it is too heavy and difficult to move around with.

    I am currently under a Medicare contract until 8/2018, and am on oxygen 7/24 and at a setting of 4. The tanks are very restrictive for my movements, practically not allowing me to leave my residence. Unfortunately, no one told me about the conflict between Medicare and VA, that I could only use one until the complete Medicare contract runs out. My quality of life right now is at its lowest,not being able to leave my residence, I live in a rural area in the mountains of North Carolina. I need assistance with VA on getting a portable oxygen concentrator that I can carry over my shoulder, and utilize the cars power supply. Please help. I am retired Army, 20 years, and am 100% VA disabled, as a result of disease under combat conditions

    1. Web Admin Web Admin says:

      I understand. Inogen One systems can can be carried over your shoulder. You can also look at getting a backpack. I suggest you contact your local VA and discuss your options. Thank you so much for your service.

    My husband has been put on oxygen 24/7. I have read that he can get a portable unit through the va. Is this true? And how would we go about getting one?

    1. Web Admin Web Admin says:

      Yes it is. Please contact your local VA for assistance.

    I am 100% disable Vietnam Veteran and am buying a home with my wife so I can leave nursing home.
    The Imogen would make it much easier for both of us not having to deal with these tanks.
    Colox has been providing my oxygen needs for over 10 years. If you are now contracted with the VA it shouldn't be difficult to switch to the Imogen which I have used in the past. We are moving to a rural area.

    1. Web Admin Web Admin says:

      Hi Chester, A sales representative will reach out to you shortly to discuss your options.

    I am a Nam Vet Marine who gave 22 yr of my life to our country. Agent Orange has taken it's toll. I can still taste that heavy white stuff our gov dropped on us by our planes. I am now restricted to the house because I cannot load the heavy oxygen tanks. I pray for some relief or help from people who haven't been there and would like to make my last years better and appreciated. I wish to drive to see my family and my country . Richard Hobbs USMC

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Richard, Thank you for your service to our country. We admire your hard work and dedication. We encourage you to contact your local VA and VA doctor to inquire about our portable oxygen concentrators. They will be able to discuss your oxygen therapy options.

  13. Avatar Tom says:

    I asked my local VA physician about getting an oxygen concentrator and he said the VA wont pay for it; so Im still on oxygen bottles.

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Tom, Unfortunately it is up to your VA doctor's discretion to decide what oxygen therapy device he or she would like you to use. We do have a contract with the VA, so you may want to remind your doctor that.

  14. Avatar George D Stewart says:

    I'm VA veteran and have COPD and on oxygen how do I get one of these portable units.

  15. Avatar becky says:

    Hi, Viet Nam War veteran… are spouse's eligible for portable oxygen thru the VA ? thanks

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Becky, Is your primary care doctor a VA doctor? Regardless of whether or not you have VA insurance, your primary care doctor needs to prescribe you oxygen therapy. Please consult your primary care doctor and ask him or her what options are available to you. If your insurance policy does not cover Inogen portable oxygen concentrators (POCs), our POCs are also available for purchase.

  17. Avatar Sgt.J H Rice Vietnam Vet. says:

    Go see you're primary care Doctor! I,d say that statement costs you numerous sales. Why not sell directly to our Vets at a discount. What good is the VA contract doing you?? My VA doesn't know it exists.

    Veterans are probably an endless market for you!!!

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Sergeant J.H. Rice, Unfortunately in order for you to obtain any oxygen device (regardless of if it's an Inogen or not) your primary care doctor will need to evaluate you and prescribe you oxygen therapy. Our portable oxygen concentrators are available for purchase. To review your purchase options, please call an Oxygen Specialist at 1-800-374-9038. An Oxygen Specialist will do their best to assist you in your oxygen therapy needs.

  18. Avatar Jerry Gauthier says:

    This seems to be a useless blog. Every question was avoided. If you're truely7 serious about a blog? Why don't you answer the questions? Put an oxygen specialist in charge of this blog so people can get answers. I have a vet friend that needs one but he can't afford $3000 – so if the VA doesn't help,,, he's screwed.

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Jerry, Apologies for the delayed response. As every case is different and the best way to receive clarification about the VA coverage is to contact us directly. An oxygen specialist can run a free eligibility check and provide you with all the answers. 800-374-9038 Thank you!

  19. Avatar Jim Pate says:

    I have COPD 100% disable, My civilian doctor has me on Oxygen at night. He requested a portable machine from Pacific Thru Medicare/Tricare and been informed of one year back log. Could you advise me on a more expeditious way to get one with VA or Medicare. Thanks

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Jim, Thank you for reaching out to us. The best advice I can give you is to call us here and speak with an oxygen specialist so we can review your available options. Please call us at 1-800-374-9038. Thank you!

  20. Avatar Linda Lucia says:

    Hi my husband is a Viet Nam War veteran and has severe COPD and is on oxygen. He gets his oxygen supplies through the V.A. Whenever we need a portable concentrator to travel we have to give a two weeks notice to the oxygen supplier. We are wondering how we can get one through the V.A. for permanent use so that we can pick up and go without having to give a prior request. He is interested in the Inogen 4 unit but also has used the Phillips Respironics Simply Go unit. We need one that is also FAA approved. If the V.A. can’t give us one then because he uses the V.A. for his oxygen needs would we be able to have Medicare help pay for a portable unit

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Linda, Please call us at 800-374-9038 and we can provide you with a quote and free Medicare eligibility check. We look forward to speaking with you. Thank you.

      Thank you!

  24. Avatar David Hoffman says:

    Been on oxygen thru VA for years. Have inquired about the Inogen unit a few times. Been told buy therapist there not worth the trouble. Last time I inquired was around 4 months ago, what's up ?

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi David,
      That's too bad that the therapist is saying that. You do require a prescription by a doctor for the Inogen One units, so maybe that is what they were referring to. We help you navigate the process and there really isn't much "trouble". Thank you.

  25. Avatar R. F. King says:

    My VA pretty much says the same thing about Inogen as previous blogs have stated . How much does it cost to rent the G4 with two 6 hour batteries per month ? I am 100% disabled vet on oxygen for years .

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi R.F.,
      Thank you for your comments. Please contact us and we can discuss options with you. We do not rent our portable oxygen concentrators, but there are financing options available. Please give us a call at 800-434-0079 and we can help you!

  26. Avatar Bill Barbary says:

    I just went to my VA today for the evaultation test to see if I could use the battery powered units ,after a few walks with and with out and my readings that were taken before during and after several tests I was told I could use one and my oxygen level was well within the good readings,but I would have to return all my small bottles I use now and there meters flow gagues,should be ready to hand them out in AprilI think the one went to 5 and I tested on 2 and all went well 🙂

  27. Avatar Bill Ashby says:

    I'm on home oxygen 24/7 and would like to get one of these machines, I'm 100% disabled because of COPD, I was told I would have to purchase one which I feel if it is through the VA it should not cost anything. I get my stuff right now through Norco.

  28. Avatar Sharon says:

    My friend is a victim of "agent orange! He is on oxygen 24/7. I would like some advise on getting the va to approve him for portable oxygen tank. Would appreciate any advise as to getting the va to cover the price for it. Thank you, Sharon

  29. Avatar Sharon B. Bell says:

    My mother is the spouse of a deceased USMC 100% DAV injured while serving in the Pacific during WWII as a Marine gunner aboard the USS Franklin aircraft carrier (the ship that wouldn't die). She currently receives monetary, medical and RX drug benefits from the VA. Would she be eligible for one of Inogen's portable oxygen units? She is on oxygen at home.

    1. Inogen Inogen says:

      Hi Sharon, We work with the VA, but I think you should ask them directly if she is going to be covered. We also work with other medical insurance carriers and Medicare, so please give us a call. Thanks!

  30. Avatar Eva says:

    Does anyone know why a vet must give up the Medicare oxygen tanks for home use if they get a concentrator? Where is this official guidance? What happens if the concentrator breaks down and has to be sent off for warranty work? How does the vet manage to breathe in the meantime?
