Oxygen will be paid as a rental for the first 36 months. After that time, if you still need the equipment, Medicare will no longer make rental payments on the equipment. However, if equipment is still necessary, your provider will continue to provide the equipment to you for an additional 24 months. During this two year service period, Medicare will pay your provider for refilling your oxygen cylinders and for a semi-annual maintenance fee.
After 60 months of service through Medicare you may choose to receive new equipment.

In some parts of the country, a new program called Competitive Bidding will require you to obtain certain medical equipment from specific, Medicare-contracted suppliers in order for Medicare to pay. If you are located in a city where the program is in effect, you will need to obtain the following items from a contracted supplier:
To find out if your zip code is affected by Competitive Bidding, call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227). You may also visit Medicare.gov and lookup suppliers in your area by zip code (a notice will appear if your area is subject to Competitive Bidding). If medical equipment is marked with an orange star, it will need to be provided by a contracted supplier.
Below is a summary of the standards Medicare requires of home medical equipment providers. Our company meets or exceeds all of these standards.
