How much does a sleep apnea machine cost? Costs, Insurance, Rates

Does this scenario sound familiar?  You have a snoring problem.  You come into a sleep lab to have a sleep study conducted and find out you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea.

The next thought is “ok, so how do I treat my sleep apnea?”
