The wireless modem on my wife's S9 used the AT&T cell network to connect to the internet. The compliance data was uploaded to a web site that the DME accessed. They supplied that data to Medicare to prove that the machine was being used.

My machine had to communicate with the DME so that compliance (sufficient usage) could be verified, to qualify for Medicare coverage. After the 13 month lease was up, the machine became mine, fully owned, and Medicare coverage of the lease payments was no longer an issue.
If the cellphone connection were not maintained, I would have had to drive to the DME's office to have the SD card downloaded.
