[Equipment] How to get replacement machine after recall
How to get replacement machine after recall
When I talked to my doctor about the Philips recall her solution was to write a script for a ResMed machine.  My DMS said, they would not honor the script because my machine is not 5 years old.  I'm on Medicare and I talked to them and they told me that the DMS has to replace the machine because of the recall.  But then they suggested I just try a different DMS company.  The others I have talked to have said that they can't provide a new machine because of the "demand and shortage".  

I'm hoping someone can give me some suggestions on how to get a ResMed machine besides just buying it out of pocket.  If I buy it is it possible to get Medicare to reimburse me? 

I appreciate any words of wisdom you may have to offer.

Thank you,

Mary Rogers

RE: How to get replacement machine after recall
I bought mine and submitted it to my insurance - not Medicare - and I got 80% for durable medical equipment Of course this would depend on your insurance policy but it might be something to lookin to.
