FAQ

What water should I put in my humidifier and how do I maintain it?

Your humidifier must only be filled with water. We recommend using boiled tap water or bottled water (spring water).

  • Boiled water: Boil the water for at least 1 minute and allow it to cool before use,
  • Spring water: Choose the least mineralized water possible.

Attention: Never use distilled water or household-use de-mineralized water.

Washing, de-scaling, drying:

Particular attention must given to drying, as well as to the elimination of tartar, in order to limit bacteria proliferation.
The de-scaling process is done with diluted white vinegar.
In the case of a humidifier used in oxygen therapy, the nozzle must also soak in diluted white vinegar in order to de-scale it. Let the elements dry naturally.

It is necessary to respect:

  • the frequency of changing the water in the tank: once a day,
  • the frequency of cleaning and de-scaling: once a week.
What do I do if my treatment has been refused by my insurer?

Your treatment may be refused by the Medical Council of your social security provider.
We recommend that you respect the deadlines for return of various administrative documents.

Does AGIR à dom. set the rates for my treatment?

No, AGIR à dom. does not set the rates for your treatment. They are set by Social Security (Code of SS Article 165-1 LPP).

The “rental” guarantees you quality accompaniment by the  AGIR à dom. teams

How do I benefit from an aid for electrical consumption?

It is the Social Security Code (LPP) which defines the assistance with payment for electrical consumption. It depends on the type of treatment (package) prescribed by your doctor.

Can my primary care doctor sign my prescription?

In some cases, your primary care doctor is able to establish the prescription for your treatment. But it is often necessary for your specialist physician to sign your prescription. Indeed, only your specialist is able to perform certain exams that are necessary and indispensable for your treatment.

Why am I asked for a renewal of my prescription?

In order to ensure continuity of care, when your initial prescription expires, we ask for a new one. This prescription, properly completed and signed by your specialist physician, is thus necessary for us.

So that your doctor has the latest information about your treatment, please do not hesitate to contact us concerning the date of your next consultation with him/her.
