Preferred Homecare Hospital Bed

I have been trying to get a hospital bed for my son for weeks. It took over a week and approximately 10 phones calls to find the fax for the prescription. I even worked with a supervisor. Both Phoenix Children's Hospital and myself sent the order over 7 times. I spent several hours over a period of 4 days on hold, being hung up on, starting over and having them search through timestamps to try to find the orders. When they finally did they said they could delver the bed right away. Then they called again saying they needed doctor notes and the whole nightmare started over again. It's been two weeks and we still don't have a bed. Everyday I call they tell me the system is down. I've been working with DME companies for 20 years for my son and this is by far the worst service and worst experience I've ever had. This is absolutely unacceptable.

Claimed loss: My time away from my job, my sanity and my son's ability to sleep for two weeks.

Desired outcome: For Preferred to function like an adequate company to get medical equipment from. Everyone in our community does everything they can to avoid using this company but we are forced to for lack of options.

Preferred Homecare Can't reach anyone — on hold for long time. Have tried several times/days to contact them

Received wrong package and can't get anyone to send me a prepaid label for a return. These are not my supplies. Hope my insurance was not charged for them.
PLEASE attend to this as soon as possible. As items are sitting here since Nov 22, 2023

This review was chosen algorithmically as the most valued customer feedback.

I have been on oxygen for over 2 years. I was regularly receiving my tank refills until a few months ago. A representative is supposed to bring me takns every Wednesday as we have that set up in office. For the last couple of months they have not been coming regularly and I am having to commute 30 minutes to my local office to exchange tanks. Also, I have...

Despite a 10% resolution rate on customer complaints, which invites a closer look, Preferred Homecare stands out for its commitment to quality and security. Clients considering Preferred Homecare should delve into its customer service record to gauge compatibility with their expectations.

Preferred Homecare earns 91% level of Trustworthiness

Perfect Trust Endorsement: Preferred Homecare achives 91% ligitmacy per Complaints Board. Highly recommended, yet always stay vigilant.

This demonstrates a commitment to customer service and transparency, which is a positive sign for building trust with customers.

A long registered date for preferredhomecare.com can be seen as a positive aspect for Preferred Homecare as it indicates a commitment to maintaining the website and its domain name for a long period of time.

However ComplaintsBoard has detected that:

  • While Preferred Homecare has a high level of trust, our investigation has revealed that the company's complaint resolution process is inadequate and ineffective. As a result, only 10% of 57 complaints are resolved. The support team may have poor customer service skills, lack of training, or not be well-equipped to handle customer complaints.
  • Preferredhomecare.com has relatively low traffic compared to other websites, it could be due to a niche focus, but could also indicate a potential lack of traffic and popularity. The preferredhomecare.com may offer a niche product or service that is only of interest to a smaller audience.

Preferred Homecare Shower bar

My doctor put in a request for a shower bar in early February 2023. I did not receive it until May 15, 2023. I called too many times to remember during that time, waiting on hold for at least an hour each time to be told numerous excuses. My final call to them was in April 2023 when they stated it was on the truck to be delivered tomorrow. Tomorrow is not May 12, there was a 3-week time on the truck? When I finally received it, it did not work, even after I followed the directions numerous times, it won't stick on the wall. Today, June 14, 2023, I receive a bill for $30.17. Ironic how I had ordered this exact same from Amazon for less than $20 & sent that one back because it didn't work. This was supposed to be bars installed in the walls of the shower as my doctor ordered. I tried to call customer service again today, [protected] & waited 1 hour & 15 minutes before giving up. I should not be paying for something that doesn't work, let alone the wrong item. I am not calling customer service again. I am not paying this bill. There is basically no way to resolve this with the company so their overprice bill is going unpaid.

Desired outcome: Please refund, I would like an apology, please respond. Account #LHH40

Preferred Homecare Nutrition

I have been my son's caregiver since he was 17. There is no reason whatsoever for aguardianship papers need to be filed in order to give information on a prescription of supplies needed by the patient. Preferred has been given a prescription to fill and have failed the people by demanding more authority for their ENTITY status. Requiring such documents is against the law. A medical condition is not being discussed. Verifying that a prescription has been filled does not require authorization. A lot of patients have been mistreated due to this situation and the health board needs to fix this issue ASAP.

Desired outcome: Lawsuit

Preferred Homecare CPAP Supplies

My interactions with PH of Denver Lakewood for CPAP fittings and initial machine and first month supplies have been good. However, working with the CPAP supplies customer service at the 800 number has been impossible for several years. PH of Denver gets a 4 , PH CPAP supplies which you will need to work through for years to come gets a negative 5.

CPAP customer service is hobbled by a system that doesn't allow them to solve the most basic of issues - that is, having a current Rx on file. They can't get the Rx that my doctor sent to them from their fax machine and into their database which the customer service representative (CSR) uses. The CSR can't contact management except by email, the CSR can't contact the prescribing doctor's office, the CSR can't / won't allow the customer to speak with a supervisor. Expect a 15 to 45 minute wait before the CSR is available to tell you that they can't do anything.

Desired outcome: Be able to order CPAP supplies

Preferred Homecare Bipap reoccurring order has wrong size headgear

Altho the headgear was being made by a new manufacturer - it no longer fit for a few reoccurring orders. After telling them, they would not let me return an unopened one and substitute a different size. I paid for the new size headgear. So my recent order has the wrong size headgear AGAIN. so I tried repeatedly to call and speak to customer service to replace the wrong size. 3 calls and on hold times with No contact w a person. 1hour 6 min, 1 hour 14 min (Monday) 38 min Tuesday.

Answer the phone! Anything over 20 min is unacceptable. Or have an email. Guess I’ll just keep trying?

Desired outcome: Phone call or email and replace the headgear w/o cost. [protected]@q.com

Preferred Homecare cpap setup

01/05/2023 Preferred called to schedule appointment for their representative to set up a cpap for my husband. We live in East Mesa, AZ. They have an office in Tempe, AZ and one in the west side in Glendale, AZ.

No appointments available in Tempe office until the 3rd week in January. As a heart patient, that is unacceptable. I asked to have the Air Sense 11 shipped to us. She said the delivery driver will be in your area tomorrow. All day window from 7am-7pm.

I asked specifically for the Air Sense 11 CPAP machine and the the Dream Wear full mask system size medium. She said the driver will have all of that on the truck. I said we want the 11, not the 10. She said yes. Air Sense 11 for Mr Ross. The driver arrived at 1820hrs, with the Air Sense 10 CPAP machine not the 11. And he did not have the mask we asked for. Driver said another driver will deliver tomorrow on Saturday with the correct equipment.

This is unacceptable. So husband goes another day. Specifically requested equipment and not a single thing came. Poor customer service. Even worse in listening to the customer.

Desired outcome: Immediate correction to the proper equipment. An apology from the manager and the person that called me.

Preferred Homecare You

I ordered and paid for a wheelchair cushion over a month ago. When I call to ask where it is, it just get the run around. "We will call you a soon as we know something. We will call you as soon as we hear back from our Arizona office" but nobody ever calls back. I ask to speak to a superviser, but each time they say she is "unavailable" and take a message I doubt was ever sent. If I don't hear back today, I'm calling lawyers to sue the crap out of you for the pressure sores you're causing. You obviously didn't get into this business to HELP anyone...money, money, money. I hope you rot

Desired outcome: I want the product in paid for!

Preferred Homecare Wheelchair order (or lack thereof)

I have been trying since the end of May to get an electric wheelchair. I am paralyzed and I am without transportation until they can get me my wheelchair. I called in June to make sure that they had received all of the paperwork from my home health agency/physical therapy. they claim they had received zero paperwork for my wheelchair only paperwork for my boots. It was all sit together. So that was a mystery in itself. So I told him that I would get the paperwork sent back over. And we did. I called and July to find out when their evaluation person would come out and do measurements for my wheelchair. They were shocked when they found out nobody had contacted me to make an appointment. So they transferred me to someone who could. So if I would never called, I would probably still be waiting for the evaluation people to come over. So in August I called to find out the status of my order. They said they were still putting together the quote. OK. That’s understandable. I called again in September and they were still putting the quote together. I was in medical before my car accident so I know that it doesn’t take over a month to put a quote together. so they said they would send an email to Valerie because she’s the one handling it. OK fine. October comes and I called them and they’re still putting the quote together. You kind of get where I’m going with this. Nobody’s doing anything. The representative said she would email. Valerie and I expressed to her that Valerie has done nothing. November comes, same thing. Still putting the quote together. Nothing has been sent to my insurance company yet. Unacceptable! Absolutely unacceptable. If the shoe was on the other foot I can guarantee you, this would have been sent to insurance months ago. So now it’s December 5. I called yet again to find out what’s going on. I was on hold for over 45 minutes before anybody got to me. one of the representative said that my order is in med docs and she didn’t know what that was so she was going to transfer me to this so-called Valerie person who I’ve never spoken to, until today. Valerie gets on the phone and says that she wasn’t sure why it was in med docs, but she was going to put me on hold and find out. She comes back and says that it was in med docs because they had been waiting on paperwork from my doctor. Absolutely positively not true. They had all of the paperwork that they needed and that was confirmed back in September when I called to check the status. So I proceeded to tell her that she was wrong, that all the paperwork had been there so she said that she would escalate it. So after seven months now you want to escalate it. After you’ve been sitting on my paperwork And doing nothing about it. Nothing had ever been done until I would call and check. Nobody ever took the initiative to get this pushed to my insurance on their own. I asked to speak with her supervisor, Sharee. She kept putting me on hold saying that she thinks that they’re in meetings and she will transfer me to sherries voicemail. So I left a message for her and told her that I would be filing complaints because this is a company field full of incompetent people. They don’t care about their patients. They don’t care that I’ve been bedridden waiting on them to do their jobs. I will be escalating this complaint to every possible outlet and I will be blasting this on social media to my hundreds of thousands of followers. Something must be done about this company.

Desired outcome: I want my wheelchair order sent to my insurance right away. Being bedridden has caused me other complications. And I will be contacting a lawyer.

Preferred Homecare CPAP supplies

Preferred Homecare has grown over the years and is getting to where they should be sued for fraud. Note: Many of these incidences have been happening long before COVID.

They send the wrong equipment and refuse to replace with what was ordered by the doctor, because I didn't have time to wait for over an hour to get through to someone. (if it has happened more than once to one person, imagine how often the wrong equipment gets shipped).

They have changed their products to inferior ones. When I questioned the differences in diameter of the tubes, I was told the diameter doesn't affect the pressure (which I confirmed with my doctor that the pressure does indeed change.) Did I mention, my partner called to order supplies for himself and when he asked to order mine, they let him with my d.o.b. and name, and gave information about my prescription without prior authorization.

So to summarize:

*Multiple instances of the wrong product being sent

*Wait times up to 60+ minutes, even before COVID.

*Incompetent customer service personnel who will bs you about their products, and break HIPPA laws.

*Cheap products being sent against doctor's orders

Did I mention, in the state of Arizona patients only option is through this company. They have a monopoly and do not care if you live or die due to their incompetence.

Desired outcome: *Hire more and educate customer service personnel about equipment and laws*Hire competent warehouse staff that doesn't make multiple mistakes *Understand that your incompetence could mean death for your customers.

Preferred Homecare Billing for o2 concentrator oxygen

ACCOUNT #FDO 02

This is a small monthly payment and I always pay on time, their billing practices are very stressing and staff have a lack of compassion for a patient struggling with heart and lung problems.

I am writing this complaint regarding Preferred Homecare and its billing practices, This complaint started on the month of Feb,2022 the company keeps sending me a bill stating I did not pay and noted on the bill they will put me in collections for $14.00. We sent the bill back and enclosed the canceled checks front and back copies from bank showing we paid on time, on March 2022 they sent us a bill again stating we did not pay this happened again in April,2022 and we keep enclosing the canceled checks from our bank showing we made payments on time. We received this week the bill for May and June 2022 stating we have not paid since Feb,2022

This is the payment they are looking and we already sent on time and were never posted by the company.

1.On Feb 2022 charges $14.00 (we overpaid and sent $70.02 check #933) the bill was only $14.00

2.On March 2022 charges were $14.00 (paid for amount check #938)for $14.00

3.On April 2022 charges were $14.00 (paid $14.00 check #942)

Our calculation $70.02 sent in Feb 2022 we overpaid that month and the company owes us $56.02 for May 2022 $14.00 and June 2022 $14.00 we did not pay as we have a credit of $56.02. We still have a remaining credit for $28.02. The billing company never cared to look or post our concerns and just keep billing us stating we never paid. One employee named Claudia left a message on my phone stating she is in charge of the complaints dept direct telephone [protected] I have reached out many times and left messages but she never called back and this is her address 4601 E Hilton Ave, suite 100 Phoenix, AZ 85034

This company from the very first day has not been a professional business and is not good to the patient, the customer service billing practices are terrible and causes damage to the health of the patient. They never answer the phone either busy or get hanged up on they have tons of customer complaints and are a D- rating on the BBB. I have paid an expensive health insurance company to deal with this issue and it is not right, please help me to resolve this issue and adjust the bill correctly and expect a refund. Thank you for your help. We attached our cancelled checks of faithful on time payments.

Preferred Homecare CPAP supplies

I've been told I can only reorder supplies by phone. There is an inordinate hold time when calling in, and when I finally talked to a representative I was told I couldn't call for a refill until next week. I couldn't place my order and have it sent out at the appropriate time. Also, I can't just order supplies on line. What a time waster! Very customer unfriendly.

Desired outcome: Please make ordering supplies easier, i.e., on line ordering or able to call ahead to order supplies.
