Frequently asked questions
Do I need a prescription from my physician to trial a pulse dose system?
Yes, our team at Handi Medical Supply is happy to assist you with getting the prescription. We will need to know which physician ordered your oxygen and in which clinic he/she works.
I’m on 2 lpm on my concentrator at home and my portable tank, does that mean that I will be on a pulse dose setting of 2 as well?
No. Every pulse dose system is different. Each person getting a system from Handi Medical Supply will be tested by our clinical staff to determine the appropriate setting for you.
Will my insurance pay for the pulse dose device?
Insurance companies pay for a portable system if you qualify for oxygen. Please contact our Customer Service Department to inquire about your particular insurance. The portable oxygen systems that we carry at Handi Medical Supply can be purchased out-of-pocket in addition to your insurance coverage (with the proper prescription and documentation).
Do all POC’s have continuous flow and Pulse Dose settings?
No they do not.
Do all POC’s in a pulse dose setting deliver the same amount of oxygen?
No, this is why it is important to be tested by a clinical professional to determine an appropriate device for your individual needs.
