If you have sleep apnea, then you probably have PAP supplies; this could include a CPAP machine, APAP machine, or BiPAP machine, plus its CPAP mask and accessories. These essentials can come with a major price tag though. That’s why Aeroflow Sleep is dedicated to finding you the best deals possible by working with your insurance provider, and that’s not all. Now, you can get a quote before you order!
Today, we'll explore how–in only 7 minutes and 3 easy steps–you can get a quote for PAP supplies through insurance with Aeroflow Sleep.
Who Needs a CPAP Machine?
Before we get too far into getting a quote for PAP supplies through insurance, let’s first ask ourselves: who needs a CPAP machine?
CPAP machines, and their APAP and BiPAP counterparts, are devices used to treat the sleep disorder, sleep apnea. How you can find out if you have sleep apnea is through a sleep study. Generally, this overnight sleep test – performed either in a lab or at home – will tell your doctor if (and how many times) you stop breathing while you’re asleep.
These episodes in which you stop breathing during sleep are called apneas and hypopneas, which are measured on the Apnea-Hypopnea Index. If you have fewer than 5 episodes, you do not have sleep apnea. Anything above that indicates your level of severity, and you will most likely be prescribed CPAP therapy; meaning you will be ordering a CPAP machine.
What's Next After Your Sleep Study?
There are two ways you can go about getting PAP supplies after your sleep study:
1. Order With Insurance
Aeroflow Sleep specializes in working with your insurance provider to get your CPAP machine covered up to 100%. We are in-network with most private health insurance companies; such as...
- Blue Cross Blue Shield
- United Healthcare
We also take secondary insurances and are accredited by Medicare and Medicaid.
2. Purchase Out-Of-Pocket
If you don’t have insurance, you can always purchase a CPAP machine out-of-pocket from a local supplier or online. This is also the best option for anyone who wants to bypass the compliance period insurance requires you to meet before you can own your CPAP machine outright.
Aeroflow Sleep recommends buying from CPAPsupplies.com if this is your preference.
