Oxygen Pump and Ventilator Benefit

The Oxygen Pump and Ventilator benefit provides financial assistance to low-income customers, who apply and are approved for the MaineHousing Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP). Applications are submitted through the customer's local Community Action Program agency. To be eligible, customers must use an oxygen pump or ventilator at least eight (8) hours each day. The benefit is intended to cover the full electrical cost of operating an oxygen pump or ventilator, and must not reduce benefits provided under the Low Income Assistance Program.

The annual renewal process is necessary each September and requires recertification for HEAP as well as the written approval of the customer’s physician or the physician’s agent or designee. Once a customer becomes eligible, the benefit will appear on their next bill.
