MikeyT,
May I suggest that you call Medicare and ask directly what your deductible and/or copay is?
Please do not rely on what a DME tells you. They may be trying to get a rental payment from both you and Medicare. Also there is a difference in coverage between regular medicare and a medicare advantage plan.

Call them yourself. You need to take control of this before you end of being overcharged.
