Understanding Your Oxygen Order Before You Buy a POC
Oxygen is prescribed by a control of the flow rate, i.e., liter flow. The common 1-3 liters per minute continuous flow is not appropriate in all situations. This could be too much or not enough.
Precision in the use of the proper flow, or amount of oxygen, is necessary. The flow of oxygen should achieve the normal amount of oxygen in your blood, expressed as a saturation above 90%.*
What to Know Before You Buy a POC
Portable Oxygen Concentrators produce oxygen; they do not store oxygen.
Portable concentrators produce varying levels of oxygen per minute, which allows for an acceptable dose of oxygen every breath you take.
Portable concentrators that weigh 2 to 8 pounds only deliver oxygen on-demand pulse flow. Manufacturers of these devices place arbitrary numbers such as 1-3 or 1-6 to refer to the size of the pulse flow of oxygen and are not the same as liter flow. These settings are considered liter flow equivalents. Also, these devices do not all produce the same amount of oxygen at a given setting.
Why Self-Monitor Before You Buy a POC
Many people commonly check their blood pressure, blood sugar or air flow rate (peak flow) at home. We can measure temperature and weight whenever we have the need.
We can now measure our blood oxygen and pulse rate at home as well, using a simple pulse oximeter. A common word used when measuring oxygen is titration.
Titrating is the measurement of what your oxygen equipment setting is achieving in the arterial blood. It’s the blood that energizes the tissue. By taking your own measurements, you can adjust your oxygen setting for any situation and with any portable oxygen concentrator.
Who to Ask Before You Buy a POC
We understand that finding a portable oxygen concentrator that accommodates both lifestyle and oxygen needs can be a difficult process for both you and your loved one. Our respiratory team will take the time necessary to choose the right portable concentrator for your respiratory needs.
Our trial period on all portable oxygen concentrators assures your oxygen needs are met.
* This is a general statement. Your physician must prescribe your specific target saturation level.

Will Medicare Pay for a Portable Oxygen Concentrator?
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 portable oxygen. However, the portable oxygen benefit can be satisfied with small liquid tanks, larger gaseous tanks, or a portable oxygen concentrator. Regardless of the equipment provided, Medicare pays the same amount of money each month to the homecare provider. It is up to your homecare provider to decide what you will receive.
Yes, your homecare provider can choose to provide you with a portable oxygen concentrator under your Medicare benefit.
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, and yet the portable concentrator is much more costly to them, most homecare providers simply cannot afford it.
Can I change homecare providers to get a portable oxygen concentrator?
Again, the answer is a bit complicated. Your Medicare oxygen benefit runs on a 5-year cycle. During the first 3 years, your homecare provider can bill Medicare the full benefit amount for your home and portable equipment. They receive about $125 per month for all oxygen equipment. During the final 2 years, they can only bill Medicare for the maintenance on the equipment, so they receive even less.
Any company that may provide a portable oxygen concentrator would need to take advantage of the full 5-year cycle in order to recoup enough cost to cover their expenses. Thus, they would need to be able to bill Medicare within the first couple months of your initial need for oxygen, or at the beginning of your next 5-year cycle. Timing is everything.
Also, keep in mind that oxygen equipment falls under Medicare’s competitive bidding which is geographic in nature. Most likely there are several homecare companies that have won the bid for your area and only those companies can bill Medicare on your behalf.
So what’s the bottom line?
Yes, Medicare covers the cost of a portable oxygen concentrator. But in reality, your odds of finding a local Medicare company that will provide you with a portable concentrator are slim to none.
That’s why at OxiMedical we provide you with the best brands in portable oxygen at prices you can afford.

Inogen, the long-standing leader in manufacturing compact portable oxygen concentrators, has just released their newest model, the Inogen One G5.
The Inogen One G5 offers an impressive 1,260 mL of oxygen output per minute, 6 oxygen flow settings, and weighs only 4.57 pounds with the single battery, making it the most powerful Inogen model and most powerful oxygen concentrator available among lightweight, compact models. The Inogen One G5 also boasts a longer battery life than all other models, allowing you to more freedom in your day-to-day activities and for extended travel, removing barriers to a vibrant, active life.
Like the Inogen One G4, the Inogen One G5 is Bluetooth enabled and can be used with the Inogen Connect App. This free mobile app allows you the ability to monitor your Inogen One concentrator through your mobile device. With Inogen Connect you can check your battery life, monitor sieve column life status, perform column resets when replacing columns, get the latest software updates for your Inogen One machine, easily access the user manual, and view troubleshooting tips. Most of all, Inogen Connect provides you with peace of mind knowing that your Inogen concentrator, or that of a loved one in your care, is working properly.
The Inogen One G5 comes standard with the following features:
- Flow settings 1 – 6, delivers double the amount of oxygen over Inogen One G4
- Longer battery life – at setting 2, the single battery runs for up to 4.5 hours while the double battery runs for up to 8.5 hours, Inogen One G5 has double the battery time as the Inogen One G4

UPGRADE OPPORTUNITY FOR ALL INOGEN ONE USERS
With an oxygen output of 1,260 mL per minute, the Inogen One G5 is an excellent upgrade for users of the Inogen One G2, G3 and G4 who have higher oxygen needs and have been hoping for a lighter model. The Inogen One G5 provides the same amount of oxygen as the Inogen One G2 but weighs nearly 2.5 pounds less than its predecessor and is significantly smaller.
The Inogen One G5 may also be preferable for those who currently use an Inogen One G3 because it has higher oxygen capacity, is a bit smaller and lighter, and offers the convenience of Bluetooth connectivity to the Inogen Connect App.
The Inogen One G5 may be particularly attractive for Inogen One G4 users who find they need more oxygen than the G4 can offer while still being acceptably compact.
At OxiMedical, we offer excellent trade-in value for your Inogen unit.
THE SUPERIOR CHOICE
The Inogen One G5 exceeds the standard features of all other portable concentrator models, including the Philips SimplyGo Mini, Caire Comfort, Drive iGo2, ResMed Mobi , and Invacare Perfecto2 Mobile. Compared to these models, the Inogen One G5:
- Is lighter

TRAVELING WITH THE INOGEN ONE G5
The Inogen One G5 meets FAA requirements for flying with a portable oxygen concentrator, and because the Inogen brand name is so widely recognized, you can expect reduced hassle with airlines and airport security personnel. Measuring just 7.19 inches long, 3.26 inches wide and 8.15 inches tall with the single battery, it is also small enough to easily carry with you and stow under an airline seat. The double battery affords extended battery times for long flights or all-day outings.
