I received an E-mail from another friend concerning Health Insurance and Oxygen. Here is the difference between Oxygen and drugs/medicines.
Oxygen is a “durable medical equipment” and not a “medicine”. Therefore, Oxygen is not based on FDA recommendations and/or findings. GENERALLY insurance companies have guidelines under a corporate medical policy. Generally Oxygen is approved for respiratory problems. OBVIOUSLY, we Cluster headache people need Oxygen to constrict the blood vessels in our heads and not for our respiratory system.
To receive Oxygen from a Health Insurance Company it is necessary to EDUCATE the Health Insurance Company. Please follow the link below to see how this is done.
