Hope I can help answer some of your questions about oxygen, at least from my experience that is. I have Blue cross/Blue shield and they paid for the gauges for the tank and the cart that it's wheeled around on. The E tanks which are the norm, cost about 32.00. If you have an Ins. plan where there is a deductable, you may have to pay the whole price until you meet your deductable. If you have H.A.s for 3 to 4 hours at a time, I would get the o2 as soon as possible, this could be the difference between a 15 min. and a 4 hour one. 8 liter flow is the highest mine will go to and believe me I crank that sucker up all the way. You usually own everything but the E tanks themselves. The tanks, when empty, get returned to the local supply place in return for full ones. When you go into remission (wish I knew what that word was like) Just store your tank in a cool place like a closet. Out of your eyesight too, it might bring back too many bad memories. Hope this helped you in even just a small way. If it wasn't for oxygen and Imitrex, Id be dead by now. Godd luck to you my friend.
