yesterday i recieved a call from an elderly oxygen patient who is on high
flow oxygen to his trach. his patient owned suction machine was not
working properly and he called me for help. i was at his house in 15
minuets and quickly fixed the problem with no charge to him or medicare.
he was my oxygen patient and asked for my help because he choose our
company based on our reputation and proximity to him, in case he would
need exactly the type of assistance that he needed yesterday. When this
law goes into effect he may or may not have my company to service his
oxygen, but it will be difficult to provide him rapid and free service
under the reimbursement we would likely receive. without that free help he
would have aspirated, called 911 and been transported to an ER then in all
probability been admited. What is lees costly??? It’s not about the
equipment delivered it’s about taking care of those we provide it to.
