A member asked:

I was admitted to hospital more than 3 times as my o2 levels do not stay above 90% breathing on my own, and drops down to 80% under physical activity. i was advised by the doctor that if i could get an oxygen concentrator for home he would release me?

The work up should include imaging, a walk test, pulmonary testing and ruling out a pulmonary embolism. COVID 19 screening advised. If you have COVID 19, supplemental home oxygen may be ordered by your physician and their office can check the insurance coverage.
