Lincare is a leading provider of respiratory care services and is proud to support the Stabilizing Oxygen Access for Rural Seniors (SOARS) Act. This bill, which has bipartisan support, aims to improve access to home oxygen services for vulnerable populations, especially those living in rural areas.

The SOARS Act seeks to create a new payment methodology for home oxygen therapy services, ensuring that providers are adequately reimbursed for the vital care they deliver to patients. Additionally, it addresses regulatory barriers that have limited access to these services, particularly for those living in rural and underserved communities.

Lincare commends Senators Jerry Moran (R-KS), Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), and Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) for their bipartisan efforts in introducing the SOARS Act and urges Congress to pass this vital legislation quickly.

At Lincare, we believe that every patient deserves equal access to quality care. Therefore, we need your help in supporting this important bill.

We urge you to support the SOAR Act by contacting your local representative or senator:
  • Please message your Senate and House members today to help with the grassroots campaign and ask for their support of the SOAR Act.
