If I understood you correctly, you said that it was the prescribing authority's own DME that is the equipment provider. If so, that is in direct violation of Medicare guidelines. A prescribing entity is not allowed to act as the equipment provider. I encountered this when I was supplied my CPAP by my Pulmonologist while I was on private insurance and then later went on a Medicare Advantage Plan.
Also, like Mongo said, you're entitled to your Rx and Sleep Study.
Statistics prove that people who have more birthdays live longer.
JustMongo and OpalRose have given you great forward thinking advice. My question is this..Is this DME and their response that overwhelmingly unbearing that maybe some mutual agreement between the two of you would allow a smoother relationship. It sure would save you a lot of grief. Is there was something there that you could just "bite the bullet" over.
Yesterday is history; Tomorrow is a mystery; Today is a gift; Thats why its called "The Present".
WELCOME! to the forum.!
Much success to you with your CPAP therapy and good luck getting your DME problems straightened out.
Thank you each one! Every reply had something useful to me. Even the thought that maybe I should just try to cool it. I will consider even that.
Once again I appreciate the information and the spirit in which it is given. These forums are a breath of fresh air for me.
