Find Care & Housing
And apparently my answer posted twice? Weird! Ah, but that's the internet for you.

As for the ad you mentioned in your question, do you have pop-up ads blocked on your internet browser? You should be able to go to your browser's settings or tools menu and turn on the pop-up blocker. That should stop those annoying ads.

You might not qualify for your state's Medicaid medical insurance program, but your state may have something called a Medicare Savings Program, which may have different financial eligibility guidelines than the medical program. The Medicare Savings Programs (MSP) help low-income Medicare beneficiaries pay their Medicare Part B costs (oxygen treatment falls under Part B). Your income is probably around $833/month- in Washington state, your income would likely qualify you for the MSP: Qualified Medicare Beneficiary Program, which would pay your Part B premium of $104.90 each month, would pay your Part B deductible of $147 per year, and any Part B copays or coinsurance. Definitely worth looking into in your state!

I'd recommend calling your nearest Senior Information & Assistance office to see if they can screen you for an MSP. If you're not sure where to find that number, you can try this website: www.eldercare.gov - it's a trustworthy website which lets you search by city & state or ZIP code for resources in your area. (also ask them about Extra Help through Social Security, which helps pay Part D costs for low-income Medicare beneficiaries).
