Come to find out it wasn’t the insurance dictating what vent I’d get, but my vent equipment supplier, Lincare. Laura had informed us in October that Lincare getting out of the vent business and so they were not taken on new vent patients, nor were they not purchasing new vents. Thus whatever vents they have around were the only ones to choose from. So they had only the LTV 800 available. Since I wasn’t comfortable with the LTV and mom saw my frustration, along with Laura, it was decided to try a new supplier.
