We had to pay out of pocket for all of the expenses and wait to get reimbursed
I have a really tough time with indoor air pollutants like dust, dark, pet dander, mold, and mildew. These allergens cause significant harm to my respiratory system. I also experience a runny nose, sore throat, shortness of breath, and wheezing. I have endured allergy symptoms since I was a kid. Sometimes I couldn’t even go outside to play with my friends, because my mom was afraid that I would have an allergy attack and die while I was with my friends. Around the time that I was 15 years old, the doctor put me on a daily medication. It seems to work pretty well, but eventually it wore off and I no longer had the same type of relief that I did in the past. I recently went to a new doctor and he suggested using an indoor air purifier to help. My mom and dad got the indoor air purifier covered by their health insurance. Then they went to a medical supply store. It took a lot of time and energy to find a medical supply store that had air filtration equipment and air purifiers. It was even harder to find one that would bill their insurance. We had to pay out of pocket for all of the expenses and wait to get reimbursed. The air purifier really helped a great deal, though, I felt relief instantly after the machine was plugged in and running for a couple of hours. It was really easy to tell that it was working too, because the air in my bedroom was always cleaner and fresher than the air in the rest of the house. It made my mom and dad heavily consider buying an air filtration system for our entire home.
