Do I have to be on a CPAP machine?
Thank you the technician was very professional. Thanks again.
CPAP therapy is a very common treatment option for Obstructive Sleep Apnea because it works. However, like all treatments, it doesn't work in all cases, so other treatment options are available.
What other treatments are available?
Not all of these treatments are recommended in all cases, so please consult with your physician about what options would work in your case.
Where do I get more supplies?
If you want your insurance company to pay for the supplies, you will most likely have to go back to the Durable Medical Equipment (DME) company that provided you with your machine/supplies when you started. If you have different insurance now, or it has been a while, you may be able to select a new DME company. Your insurance company can provide you with more details.
If you don't have insurance, or want to pay cash you can find several online companies that will sell you the supplies. Depending on what you need, you may still have to have a prescription for the supplies or equipment. Purchasing used equipment on Ebay or Craigslist is not recommended as faulty equipment can case major medical problems.
