How To Return To Your CPAP Therapy

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestmail

Many people diagnosed with sleep apnea find they stop their CPAP therapy at some point. Whether due to a broken machine, a change in weight, or some other life-adjusting event, the CPAP therapy stops. For some folks, it’s because they think they no longer need it, and for others it’s because they can’t seem to keep compliant. But either way, it usually leads to them returning to CPAP after a few months, or even after a few years.

With how fast technology moves, it’s easy to be overwhelmed when trying to re-integrate into using a CPAP. Fear not, for we’ve compiled a list of the most important steps to help you start your CPAP therapy again and stick with it.

Here are 4 tips for what to do when you’re ready for CPAP again:

1. Jump start your therapy by getting new supplies through your insurance.

If you had your CPAP for a long time, there’s a chance your insurance company will authorize a new one. Insurance typically covers a new CPAP machine every 5 years.

If your machine is newer but it’s been a few months, then you’ll still need new supplies, like a fresh mask, tube, and water chamber. These need regular replacing, and are pivotal to you enjoying your CPAP therapy. Newly designed masks are announced every year, and the best option for your needs may have changed since you stopped therapy. Make sure you’re getting supplies that match your needs and can replace them as scheduled.

Your new CPAP machine could be yours for $0! Allow us to check with your insurance provider for you to find out what is covered (for free!). Click below to get started:
