Medicare Patients' Oxygen Rights

Patients with original Medicare have rights that cover things like the types of equipment that they receive, the services that they receive, and the right to make a complaint. Learn more in the Medicare Patients’ Oxygen Rights brochure. If you have a Medicare Advantage plan or a different type of insurance, you should reach out to your plan to get information on how they cover oxygen therapy.
