Blue Cross Blue Shield for Oxygen Concentrators

by Justin LaClair June 16, 2023 1 min read

Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) is not a single entity but a federation of independent health insurance companies. The coverage and policies of BCBS plans can vary depending on the specific plan and the region in which it operates. Therefore, the coverage for an oxygen concentrator by BCBS plans can vary.

In general, BCBS plans often provide coverage for durable medical equipment (DME), which can include oxygen concentrators. However, the coverage details, such as the specific criteria for coverage, the extent of coverage, and any limitations or requirements, will depend on the individual BCBS plan and the terms of the policy.

To determine whether BCBS will pay for an oxygen concentrator, it is best to review the specific policy or contact the BCBS plan directly. You can typically find the contact information on your insurance card or by visiting the BCBS website for your state or region.

It is advisable to reach out to BCBS to inquire about the coverage for an oxygen concentrator and to understand any documentation, prescriptions, or prior authorization requirements that may be necessary to obtain coverage. The insurance company can provide the most accurate and up-to-date information regarding coverage for an oxygen concentrator under your specific BCBS plan.
