Don't know what stage i am in

Hi i was diagnosed with copd 2 years ago don't know what stage got 4 inhalers my oxygen machine and my nebuliser machine .no insurance .hade a appointment with a lung doctor didn't have $200 to pay to see them

  1. , Like Leon I am very familiar with the cost of medications. Even though.I battle emphysema, eczema and heart issues I fortunately have Medicare and a Medicare supplement to help pay for meds but still pay out of pocket for some meds. Since the election of President Biden he reopened the enrollment period for the AFFORDABLE CARE ACT commonly called Obama Care. Please call your states local SHIPS office for assistance or check with your local library for local resources to access assistance signing up for this program. Prior health issues are accepted.
    Closing date is early May.

    1. Hi @Mazy, and thanks for your post. You make a good point about the considerable expense/cost of managing this condition. Medications,
      (like inhalers), oxygen tanks and/or concentrators, as well as nebulizers, without insurance can run into significant dollars.

      How have you managed to take care of all this for the last 2 years?
      Please do let us hear back from you when you are able to and have the time.

      Wishing you well,
      Leon (site moderator COPD.net)
