Q) I need to know what my Medicare will carry or pay for it it doesn’t want to pay for my oxygen or my medicine and I don’t understand maybe you can help me up
A) Medicare covers many medical services and supplies, including prescription drugs, durable medical equipment (DME), and oxygen equipment. However, there may be certain limitations and restrictions on what Medicare will pay for.
Regarding oxygen equipment, Medicare will cover the cost of oxygen equipment, such as oxygen tanks or concentrators, if your doctor determines that you have a medical need for it. You must also meet certain criteria, such as having a blood gas study that shows your oxygen level is low enough to require oxygen therapy.
For prescription drugs, Medicare offers prescription drug coverage through Part D. Medicare Part D plans cover a range of prescription drugs, but there may be restrictions on which drugs are covered, the amount you have to pay, and the pharmacy you can use.
If you have specific questions about what Medicare will cover or how much you will have to pay for a particular service or supply, you can contact Medicare directly or speak with your healthcare provider. You can also review your Medicare Summary Notice (MSN) or Explanation of Benefits (EOB) to see what services or supplies were covered and how much you were charged.
It’s important to note that if Medicare denies coverage for a service or supply, you have the right to appeal the decision. You can contact Medicare or your healthcare provider for information on how to file an appeal.
