Equipment coverage is covered determined by your insurance company. Our office obtains your coverage information prior to your setup and provides you with an estimate based on their information.
If your insurance company allows you the option to purchase your equipment there will be a onetime payment for the device. A majority of insurance companies require patients to rent their CPAP/bi-level device for a set period of time. This rental time period is generally 10 months but does vary between insurance companies and group policies. Upon completion of the rental period the CPAP/bi-level device converts from rental to purchase. This is similar to a rent-to-own situation where a device is rented for a period of time. Upon successful completion of the rental period you own the device and neither Everything CPAP nor your insurance company will bill for additional rental charges.
During the rental period many insurance companies require compliance. Compliance means using your device at least 4 hours a night for 70% of the time in a 30 day period. Everything CPAP submits this usage data to your insurance company to obtain the required renewed authorization for billing submission. Essentially insurance companies want to make sure their patients are using and benefiting from the devices supplied to their patients by their equipment provider.
