The user is an accomplished software designer and hack so am suspicious of the report.
Please tell me how person could have manipulated data to change the date(s) and times on a report.
What? Am I on a different planet here? My gosh! All these responses... the patient is the last person that entered my mind. The wrong question is being asked. The questions that should be asked right from the get-go are:
1. Is the patient using a ResMed S9 AutoSet?
2. Is the patient dealing with a Medicare contractor as his DME?
If 1 and 2 above, then this is just the latest ploy by the Medicare contractors who are trying to avoid "very precisely written D.A.W. (dispense as written) prescriptions". Next, I would like to know if that person's Medicare contractor is the same one that I have and then, that would mean that I might (probably) have this to look forward to myself as they have tried everything imaginable up to this point.
If not 1 and 2 above, then
ask the question you asked above.
In my opinion, the patient is the last person to suspect. Why?
A. Medicare contractors want the most profit per patient.
B. They get the least with the ResMed S9 AutoSet
C. People are innocent until proven guilty.
D. It's just too darned easy to use an xPAP for four hours or more for 21 nights out of 30. Are you kidding me!!!????
Please, I'm not trying to be a smart aleck here, Doc. I have two Medicare contractors for two different things and Oh, the stories I could tell you. Richard
P.S. At the bottom of his initial paper-work, in the fine print, it says that they can demand the full payment on everything sent. In other words (and I'm no lawyer) they can default him, demand the full price or demand that he send it all back, in which case they'll just re-sell it as a "refurb".
Additional that may not be widely known. This anti - ResMed S9 AutoSet with Medicare contractors went to a whole new level last year.
1.On July 1st, 2013, ResMed raised their prices.
2. The CBA Competitive Bidding Awards for Area #2 took place July 15, 2013
3. All these contactors knowing both of the above went ahead and signed the contracts anyway with the Federal government (Medicare), however, they are really squirming about it and trying every tactic (I could write a book)(and I'm just a schmuck)(patient).
