I am so thrilled with the results from my first check up since I got the Apap!  I have gone from quitting breathing over 75 times per hour to 0.9 or, why not just say 1?  What is the difference?  I…Continue

Does my mask fit properly?

I think it fits right but I'm not 100% sure.  I will probably end up getting another mask later on. My cheeks are a little sore in the morning where the mask sits (I have a nasal mask) and my jaws…Continue

About 11:30AM yesterday I got the call that I had been waiting for.  The DME had figured out a way to break even with my healthcare provider.  I had to pay them $100 and then we were good to go.  I…Continue

DME vs. CPAP Wholesaler
32 Replies

I have been talking to my DME off and on all day.  Here's the deal, for our purposes let's just say that a CPAP costs $1000 and an APAP costs $2000 (because they told me the APAP is "about $1000 more…Continue

With all do respect, we were not recommending treatment or giving a prescription for treatment over the blog. We were simply stating that there are alternatives to the CPAP machine. According to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine an Oral Device is recommended as the first line of treatment for mild to moderate sleep apnea. This is not our opinion just restating the information documented. We did not mean to offend anyone or to advertise in anyway. Sorry if this came across the wrong way. Hope everything works out.

has contracted at a higher rate, could actually do better paying out of pocket for their supplies. Do you know what your copay is for dme supplies?

The dme companies have contracts with the different ins companies and the ins companies contract for a specific amt. It's possible that one insurance co will contract for a mask for 50. while another will contract for 250...the dme co really doesn't have an option where this is concerned. Since the online companies aren't dealing with insurance companies, they can price their products according to the amt of profit they want and can price lower. It's possible that a person with insurance with a high copay and a company that has c

Allison, don't get discouraged about not getting you machine today. For most of us there is a time between getting insurance authorization and the DME having your machine in stock and arranging a trip to your home. It would have been great had it happened toay, but hang in there if it takes longer.

Allison, glad you're finally getting your follow up. Unfortunately I think your experience is the norm. The doctor has to get the results look them over, dictate a report, and sign off on it before they see you. Only my experience mind you. It's funny how their lack of urgency can contribute to the feeling that sleep apnea is no big deal.
