Medcare Equipment Company Reviews (59)
IF YOU HAVE A SERIOUS HEALTH ISSUE AND WILL REQUIRE FREQUENT SUPPLIES...DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!
I left a detailed message explaining how my husband hadnt been able to use his machine...he needed a new hose...etc..etc...gave every detail from the order sheet I could. told them this was message 3...no one is returning calls...and no one returned mine either! We do however get repeated message from an asian sounding robotic kind of recording speaking rather quickly telling us the benefits of him using his cpap machine. ((REALLY?)) Im thinking someone with 60% heart function should DEFINITELY be using it...but NO ONE CALLS US BACK!
After the second week of this BS...I called dispatch and acted like I was checking on our order? ((of course I knew that no one would have filled one because they simply DO NOT HELP YOU))...the person listened to the problem and connected me with a real live caring human being in respiratory at the hospital who helped get supplies ordered. She isnt even part of their supply department. She was a fill-in. So now we sit and wait because of shipping issues due to Covid.
In the meantime Ive gotten 3 more calls from the Asian robotic recording telling me how its important that my husband uses his device!
Heres the kicker: WE PAY FOR THIS HORRIBLE SERVICE.
Apparently they dont understand that the customers are WHY they have a business. As soon as our supplies arrive...we are moving on.
Hi [redacted] ,In response to Complaint ID # [redacted] , MedCare's Reimbursement Supervisor contacted the patient by phone today, to talk to her about the invoices in question and explain the billing process that occurred.Ms [redacted] was under the understanding that a payment processed on 5-3-in the amount of $was cleared through her bankBrian asked her to contact her credit union to verify that a single transaction in the amount of $was actually deducted from her account on 5-3-Ms [redacted] called the credit union and they verified that the amount was never deducted from her account.The reason that the payment was denied was due to a keying error with the bank account number through our payment systemTherefore the check was never processed.Our Reimbursement Supervisor explained to Ms [redacted] the billing process in regards to the "anniversary date" for rental and the timing of claims processing and how she is billed for her coinsurance.Ms [redacted] is on a payment plan and in addition, she now has PA Medicaid to help cover coinsurance moving forward.Brian provided her with his direct line for any questions regarding her account in the future.Thank you,Angie B**Quality Care AssociateMedCare Equipment Company LLC[redacted]

1st of all they state my husband ordered the supplies, as if he ordered them for me He did not My husband also orders c-Pap supplies from a different company for himselfHe states that MedCare did not mention any name on the automated system and therefore he assumed he was ordering for himself I never opened the item because I didn't order anything, nor did I need anything at that time At the time that I received the supplies, I did not know that my husband received the automated call I received a bill for the items months later, which is when I contacted MedCare and when my husband mentioned that he ordered supplies for himself, but never received them As a side noteon their emails to me, it states my insurance [redacted] also neglected to mention that weeks had gone by before she actually called me backShe misplaced the messages This occurred each time I contacted her or customer service I will say that when she did contact me, she was very nice and professional and assured me it would be taken care of, however, that was never the case Also, I returned the item 6/28/ I informed [redacted] from MedCare in June, that I had sent the item backShe stated that I might receive one more bill prior to them removing the balance, until they received confirmation from the company (not me!) that the item was received I received no further notifications or communications from MedCare and assumed this was taken care ofThen on Saturday, 9/19/14, I received a notification from CBCS stating MedCare turned me over to them So I then went and checked the tracking number on the item and verified that it was received on 6/30/I left [redacted] a voicemail that day stating how upset I was I filed the complaint with the Revdex.com on Saturday evening, 9/as wellConsidering how long this has been going on and now my credit was at risk! [redacted] did call me back on 9/22, but as I said I had already filed the complaint on 9/which was before I spoke to her I am curious as to why she would say that I didn't tell her that the item was returned until 9/22/I shouldn't have needed to tell her Don't they communicate with each other? I am rejecting this resolution until someone from MedCare can confirm that my credit hasn't been damaged by them turning this over to the collection agency If they can verify and send me a statement that this did not go on my credit report, then I will accept the resolutionAlso, since I contacted the Revdex.com on 9/and NOT 9/This report was filed before I ever spoke with her When I spoke with [redacted] on 9/she did assure me that my balance at MedCare was now $and that they contacted CBCS to remove me from collectionsI requested confirmation from herI also phoned CBCS and requested a confirmation letter from them as well I did receive both letters via mail I am rejecting this because it states I contacted the Revdex.com after this was settled and that is not true I contacted the Revdex.com on 9/and I did not receive any confirmation until after 9/when I received the statementsAlso, can MedCare confirm that my credit is not damaged by turning my name into a collection agencyIf I receive confirmation of that from them, I will consider this resolved
We have reviewed your letter from 10/3/regarding additional concerns that this consumer voiced regarding the above mentioned complaint CBCS, the collection agency our company is contracted with, provided a letter stating that all the accounts in the name of this particular individual have been closed and no information was submitted to any of the credit bureausThis document is attached I also wanted to stress that Medcare Equipment Company, LLC is a home care business and we do not request credit reports or submit any information to credit bureaus regarding our customers’ accounts Thank you for your mediation effort in this matter Sincerely, ~ Quality Care Associate Medeare Equipment
