The question of whether Medicare will cover the cost of a portable oxygen concentrator is one we receive frequently.
You may have been told by your homecare provider that Medicare does not cover portable oxygen concentrators or that they simply do not carry them.
You’ll rarely be given a full explanation, in part because it’s complicated. The answer is Yes and No.
THE YES AND NO OF MEDICARE COVERAGE
No, Medicare will not purchase a portable oxygen concentrator. They provide only a monthly rental benefit for oxygen equipment.
No, Medicare will not cover a portable oxygen concentrator in addition to the oxygen tanks you most likely already receive. They don’t pay more money for more equipment.
Yes, your Medicare oxygen benefit covers the cost of oxygen. However, the portable oxygen benefit can be satisfied with larger gaseous tanks or a portable oxygen concentrator.
Note: Regardless of the equipment provided, Medicare pays the same amount (about $134 per month for 36 months = $4,800).
No, most homecare providers do not choose to provide a portable concentrator. Since they receive the same amount of reimbursement from Medicare for a portable concentrator as they would for an oxygen tank.
Note: Portable oxygen concentrators are more costly for an oxygen provider to provide.
