If you were unable to attend the US COPD Coalition's webinar, "Supplemental Oxygen Systems", which was broadcast live on November 22, 2019, you can now view it in its entirety. This special webinar was devoted to addressing questions and concerns that were submitted as part of our October webinar on supplemental oxygen (you can view the October webinar here). During the October webinar, were fortunate to have representatives from Medicare review coverage policy and clarify misconceptions.
