Actually, I got my portable nebulizer under $200 through an online medical company. I think the rules is you have to do your own research, so I used google. I have Medicare, and they would not cover my portable neb, however, they did cover my home nebulizer (a non portable one). Difference between portable and non portable is portable has a special battery and you can use it anywhere. The reason why a nebulizer works better than an inhaler (even though doctors say a inhaler with the spacer is just as effective as a nebulizer) is that it gets deeper in your lungs. That makes the meds work better hehe. And if you buy a nebulizer, you only need the medication in it to be a prescription.
