Anthony Gets Much-Needed Medical Equipment from a New Provider


Anthony has significant medical needs that require the use of oxygen tanks and catheters for his tracheostomy tube. His durable medical equipment provider began sending incomplete deliveries of his equipment over several months and then suddenly stopped delivering any equipment. Anthony did not receive any notice that the delivery of the equipment would stop. OCRA advised Anthony to contact Medicare, his medical insurance, and ask them to assign a new durable medical equipment provider. Anthony’s parent contacted Medicare and immediately transferred the services to the new provider.
