Inogen Awarded Contract to Service TRICARE West Oxygen Therapy Patients
Date:9/15/2011

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Sept. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Inogen has won a service contract to provide supplemental oxygen therapy services and devices to patients in TRICARE's 21-state western service region. This contract gives Inogen the opportunity to offer the Inogen One portable oxygen concentrator to active-duty military members, retired personnel and their families.

TRICARE West (TriWest) covers 2.7 million patients in the western half of the United States. This contract alliance with Inogen means thousands of TriWest policyholders from Hawaii to Alaska to Missouri will be able to enjoy the freedom and improved quality of life that the Inogen One oxygen concentrator delivers. The Inogen One is covered by Medicare, so TriWest primary or Medicare supplement policyholders may be eligible to obtain an Inogen One oxygen concentrator for little to no additional cost compared to traditional oxygen therapy devices.

For patients, a portable oxygen concentrator means their oxygen supply will never run out. With the Inogen One, there's no need to carry oxygen tanks or let oxygen therapy affect travel plans and outings. The Inogen One makes its own oxygen with five flow settings to ensure a majority of active oxygen therapy patients' needs are covered. All Inogen patients on service through TRICARE will also receive a backup oxygen supply and will have access to Inogen's 24-hour emergency support service throughout the USA.

Weighing in at seven pounds, the Inogen One is a lightweight, portable oxygen concentrator that is designed for use at home, at night and on the go. Inogen is an award-winning manufacturer and nationally-accredited homecare provider that develops unique solutions and provides in-home services to help patients achieve their desired freedom and independence.  Accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC), Inogen currently provides oxygen therapy to thousands of patients throughout the United States.
