Advice on getting ASV

Advice on getting ASV
Hi,

I need to do another in-lab sleep study before I can get an ASV prescription. The soonest the clinic can do an in-lab study for me is mid-June. I'm not waiting that long. Any advice?

If going via insurance, there's not really much to do but wait. Unless they get an opening by someone cancelling. Self-funding? Search used.

RE: Advice on getting ASV
Just so we can look at the market in your area, approximately, where do you live?  I have referred people to Craigslist, Offer-up, Facebook Marketplace, and recently, DotMed in the Respiratory/Bilevel area of that site.  All have produced good ASV machines.  Without a script, it will be hard to get one from Supplier #2.

RE: Advice on getting ASV
Is it possible to even self-fund without a prescription?

Thanks for your replies everyone. I live in Seattle. I'm able to program & code so I think I will look into that option. Which resources do I use for that option? What are some estimates on how long it might take so I know what to expect?

If you're not so concorded about getting one through insurance. I managed to get one off eBay USA from $1400 USD brand new, just keep on the lookout daily.
