Hi guys,
My insurance co. says O2 is a "medical equipment" and is under my $300 deductable. I usually rent a tank once a year. This year I want my insurance co. to BUY me a tank because...unfortunatley I will have clusters for a very long time :)
So, I called the insurance co about buying a tank and they said I had to have my doctor write them a letter telling them that it is medically necessary. So, called the docs office and have an appointment on Monday to write up this letter. I need to call the insurance co back and see what exactly they want the letter to say.

So, I guess I just need someone's experience on what HAS worked or NOT worked to make the insurance co. NOT have a problem with buying me a tank.
Anyone had paticular problems? Or has anyone had NO problems?
Thanks alot,
