PRESS RELEASE For Immediate Release, Competitive Bidding, Round #2 Re-compete FROM Dave Marquard, CEO Owner March 21, 2016 On Tuesday evening, March 15, 2016, CMS announced another round of oxygen reimbursement cuts as high as 16% to be effective in the next few months. You can reduce or save 38% of your oxygen costs with every new patient, patients that are distant or use a lot of tanks or even all your oxygen patients. This action will more than offset the cuts and improve your profitability, by adopting the OxyGo Non-Delivery Business Model and we can help. First, equipment costs are only a small fraction of the cost drivers for serving oxygen patients. The majority of tangible costs or expenses of serving oxygen patients are operations costs like labor, delivery, and compliance expenses. Lets examine how to reduce or eliminate these expenses by replacing tanks with a portable oxygen concentrator (POC) and a stationary oxygen concentrator (SOC). Click here to find out

What about Bob? Oxygen 101 The Road To Safety

Oxygen safety should never be taken for granted. If you are in the business of delivering oxygen to patients, it is a good idea to frequently review what you are actually doing on a day to day basis compared to what is written in your procedures manual. Simple omissions and mistakes made in the rush of business can have catastrophic consequences. During my career I lost two patients (separate incidents) because they both were smoking cigarettes while on oxygen. The first patient actually was in his living room with his wife and visitors. He was a retired plumber and was very familiar with oxygen and its properties. He chose to smoke with his nasal cannula in place, something that he had done many times previously. But luck only lasts so long. The witnesses stated all they could remember was seeing flames coming from his mouth and nose. (Those of you who have had the required oxygen training may say, But Bob, oxygen isnt flammable!, which is true. However, in an oxygen enriched environment,
