Congressmen Mike Ross and Kendrick Meek Introduce Bill to Protect Medicare Patients Who Require Medical Oxygen Therapy at Home
Date:7/16/2009

, the original home oxygen provider must continue to provide, without any payment, for a two-year period following the reimbursement cap: unscheduled service and maintenance visits; 24 hour, 7 day a week emergency care; equipment repairs; and oxygen supplies and accessories. This issue would be resolved by the budget-neutral elimination of the 36-month cap on oxygen.

Home oxygen providers offer far more than just equipment. They are also front-line caregivers. They educate patients on the proper use of their equipment, answer patients' questions, make repairs and adjustments, and ensure that patients are receiving the prescribed amount of oxygen. These providers are one of the primary points of contact for many Medicare patients.

The American Association for Homecare represents durable medical equipment providers, manufacturers, and other organizations in the homecare community. Members serve the medical needs of millions of Americans who require oxygen equipment and therapy, mobility assistive technologies, medical supplies, inhalation drug therapy, home infusion, and other medical equipment and services in their homes. The Association's members operate more than 3,000 homecare locations in all 50 states. Visit www.aahomecare.org/oxygen.
