My DME
My DME is XXXXXmed. They've been so-so. Until recently.
They have outsourced billing to The Bean Counter in Woodstock GA.
Now, things are really a mess.

RE: My DME
My DME has been eBay recently. Can't deal with the ID-10-Ts at the place I was "assigned".

I wanted to learn Binary so I enrolled in Binary 101. I seemed to have missed the first four courses. Big Grinnie

RE: My DME
I've been using Amazon for things like filters. But, for mask cushions, I'd prefer to get them through insurance.
Also, a fly in the ointment -- my sleep doc pulled up stakes and moved to a different state; so the group pulled one of their retired docs back into practice.
He seems to not know that it takes more than an Rx to get some items; it takes a letter of medical necessity.

I ordered mask cushions 2 weeks ago. They would have been here by now -- except for Doc and the Bean Counters.
If I have to go out of pocket for all supplies, I don't need the doc; he's just a stop I have to make to keep a current Rx.
Ask me, they're all ID10Ts.

Reminds me of the dentist I went to once... once. When he is so old his hands are shaking when he comes at you with the needle. Time to leave.

You were lucky: I once had an old dentist that did not believe in using Novocaine. Needless to say, I dropped that one!

Too-funny

Nope, he just sat me down in his chamber of torture and started drilling! Once in a while, he would stop and say, " Now that doesn't hurt too bad, does it?"

I was surprised he did not start asking me for my classified information!

I will say that the work he did lasted. So I guess it was safe as long as he avoided my attempts to kill him!
