Anyone have any experience with any of these?
Edgepark supplies my home Coumadin test supplies (test strips and lancets). They won't buy the all-one-piece-and-disposable T-shaped lancets with a push-button that I like (so I bought some on eBay) but they reliably send me quarterly supplies of test strips and another brand of lancet (which I'm just stockpiling, for some day). But I'm on a Blue Cross HMO plan, which gives me 100% coverage on this, so I don't really have to fuss with the billing.

Not too sure any work with Medicare (doubt it) but when I complain about my DME it is because I have to call them on the phone vs having all the info they see just be accessible online. wahCare to mention the name of your DME?
I have even had them ship supplies to an alternate address, and then the next batch back to home address, and nary a hick-up. It is sweetened by the fact that I am 100% covered for DME, and honestly with my head screwed back on (as it was not when I first picked up my CPAP) the contract I signed with them was draconian... if I failed compliance, they would bill me $2k!!!! however they have helped with every issue that I brought to them, happily, and they issued an autoset as the standard issue even for patients whose docs ordered straight cpap. I know this is true, because they handed out machines and cleaning instructions in a group setting! That was a little unnerving - especially when it got to the financial part - but it all worked out and I own my machine and never paid a dime at this point.
