Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP)Dreamstation

CPAP machines deliver a constant pressure that keeps your upper airway open, allowing normal breathing during sleep. CPAP units are reliable, quiet, efficient as well as easy to use.  At Alaska Sleep Clinic, a knowledgeable professional will introduce you to CPAP and make sure you are comfortable with this form of treatment.

Purchasing Your CPAP Machine @ Alaska Sleep Clinic:

  • Does Insurance Cover My CPAP?

    The short answer is YES. Sleep apnea devices are covered by almost all health insurance. However, some health insurance plans have
    different rules regarding DME than others. Prior to the purchase of a PAP device from Alaska Sleep Clinic, your insurance carrier will be
    contacted and you will be provided with an estimate of your total patient portion.
  • How Will I Be Billed?

    It Depends on Your Insurance:
  1. Some insurances require us to bill the machine out in a ten-month installment period. That means there will be a bill sent to the
    insurance company once a month for ten months for the rental price of the machine and humidifier. If the monthly rental falls into
    a separate deductible and out-of-pocket year that the machine rental started in, the benefits start over for that plan year.
  2. Some insurance companies may also require us to bill the machine out for three months, then send a total purchase claim on the fourth
    month. In that fourth month, the patient MUST be compliant with their therapy in order for insurance to pay the claim. If the patient is NOT
    compliant, they can become responsible for the remainder of the costs of the machine.
  3. Some insurance companies may also let us straight purchase the machine where everything is billed out on the day the patient received it.
    This means there is just one claim that has the total amounts of the supplies on it.

 

  • What Does Compliance Mean?

    Every night, your insurance company is monitoring your data. It’s a process called “compliance monitoring”?If you go a few days without
    using it, it may indicate to your insurance company that you’re not serious about your sleep apnea treatment. In these cases, the insurance
    company will deny the claims and the balance becomes the patient's responsibility.

 

  • What If You Don't Have Insurance?

    We believe that a person’s financial situation should never prevent them from seeking treatment for debilitating sleep disorders.
    Our financial coordinator is available to speak with you about extended payment options prior to appointments or the provision of supplies.
