My wife is on oxygen at home right now. We are going on a cruise and will be renting an oxygen concentrator for use at night in the room. Also will be renting a portable concentrator for the flight to Europe. Are these rentals a deductible for medical expenses. Also we will be renting a scooter. is this deductible?
@ggribble , even though this is beyond the question(s) posed , please check with your airline before renting as airlines have their own rules as to which particular brand/ model they will allow -- my wife needed 24 hour oxygen and I have been through this. From your statements it seems that your wife uses Oxygen only while sleeping or only limited usage ( not 24 hrs) ---- please consult your doctor to make sure that the equipment allowed and rented is one that can support the travel conditions and duration -- charging facilities on the planes are often non-existent and seat facility in cattle class is even more limited. Wish you luck with this .
Thanks for the input. I have been working with the cruise line and the concentrator for night will be delivered without problems. The line did require some forms for this. I am flying Luthansa from the US and AA when we get back to the US. Luthansa forms were complex and AA easy. Getting the MD to sign the forms and then submit to the airlines before we go. Pretty complicated and makes me anxious. ScooterAround rentals are the rental firms who have good experience with approved rentals.
