About Egan Medical Equipment & SupplyEgan Medical is the retail medical equipment and supply subsidiary of Egan Healthcare Services, Inc.
The company was founded in January of 2011 by the son of Egan Healthcare Services' founders, with the online medical supply store making its debut in May of that year.
Egan Healthcare has been serving the health needs of Louisiana residents since 1988, and is widely regarded as among the best if not the very best provider of home health care, skilled nursing and rehabilitation services in the state. Over the years, Egan Healthcare has expanded from its original model under which in-home care and skilled nursing were the only services offered. In the 1990's, Egan added physical, occupation and respiratory therapy to the mix, as well as a DME (Durable Medical Equipment) division. Since the turn of the millennium, Egan has added an infusion pharmacy, a hospice company and a medical staffing firm to its already comprehensive list of services.

Egan Medical is the most recent addition to the company's healthcare offerings. With the cost of health insurance skyrocketing coupled with the federal government's efforts to drive up the cost of healthcare to the point at which its virtually unaffordable for everyone and anyone, Egan Medical was formed in an effort to continue to be able to provide consumers and patients with the healthcare and medical equipment products they need at a price they can afford.
An alarming trend observed by Egan Medical's founders in recent years is the ever-growing number of products which are not covered by Medicare, Medicaid or private insurance, but which had been covered in previous years. Coinciding with the steady increase in the number of products for which third-party coverage has been dropped has been a steady decline in the actual amount of the reimbursements. Rather than adjust for COLAs (cost of living adjustments) and inflation, the government and insurance companies have colluded to implement a system that would drive up the cost to consumers while driving down the amount of money businesses which actually provide the products and services can earn from doing so.

The result has been profound. Consumers are delighted to have access to the healthcare and medical equipment products they need to go about daily life at a far lower cost than ever before. The company has a business model in place that will allow it to survive regardless of what the government decides to do. Thus, everyone benefits.
