About Oxyensure
What is Oxyensure about?

At Oxyensure we are focused on bringing quality of life to the lives of Patients, by making portable oxygen concentrators easy and affordable for all involved. We’re building a network to give Patients tailored options for obtaining a POC.

Yes, we do offer our own prescription (Rx) portable oxygen concentrator – that’s because we know that sometimes the only option for patients is to buy a device, with a valid Rx. Let’s be clear though, we aren’t trying to replace in-office providers. In fact, we’d like to see more patients get convenient access to licensed therapists who can help them live a happier and healthier life, with all the benefits of a portable oxygen concentrator. That’s why we aim to connect patients with providers who offer POCs, and not just our POCs!

It’s also why we don’t give clinical advice, provide diagnosis or offer clinical services. Our service is not a substitute for professional medical care and/or advice. Patients should contact a qualified healthcare provider if they are seeking clinical care and/or advice.

Oxyensure is therefore required to obtain a valid prescription before we can ship certain items. If the item you order requires a prescription, you will see “A valid prescription is required for the purchase of this product” on that product’s page.

Can Oxyensure request my prescription from my Physician’s office on my behalf?

If your purchased item requires a prescription, you can ask us to contact your doctor on your behalf. Along with the patient’s permission, we will need the patient's name, phone number, date of birth, and the doctor’s name, city, state, phone number and fax number (if you have it available). You can request prescription support by visiting our Rx support page.

If I have my prescription, how do I securely share it with Oxyensure?

You have several options, visit our Rx support page to learn more.

Alternatively you can fax your Rx to (855) 492 9926.

What should the prescription say?

Your prescription must include:

  • the patient’s full name
  • the item(s) being ordered – this can be the description of the item or it can be the model name.
  • the physician’s name and contact information
  • the physician’s signature and date
Can I use a prescription written by a doctor outside of the United States?

No, Oxyensure can only accept prescriptions written by United States licensed physicians.

Do I need to get a new prescription if I already have one?

If your prescription includes the items, you are ordering and your doctor wrote “lifetime” or “99 months” for the length of need, you most likely would not need a new one. You can send it to us and our Prescription Support Team will review it and let you know if it meets the prescription requirements.

If your prescription has a length of need other than lifetime or 99 months, it is valid for that time period, starting from the prescription date. If the prescription is outside of the time period specified, a new prescription will be needed.
