Anyone know who sells masks with no prescription?
For ResMed10 
I want to try a new model of mask
I ordered one on Supplier #1 (DME link removed) but they will not ship w/o rx and Dr will not return calls about this.
Dr only uses 2 local suppliers  (yeah I know)

You can buy the pieces to put together a mask on a major website that started out selling books and now sells everything. (sorry, I don't think we can name sites) I have order from them for both myself (the Bleep) and my husband (the P10).

As stated above, you can buy all the pieces of a mask separately, without a script.

With that said, if you've kept in contact with your doctor, he/she should have no issue with giving you a copy of your original prescription.

Most online vendors will require a script to be on file before they would send out a mask.

I’ve found the occasional supplier that says, “just make sure to email a copy of the scrip”, and then sends the mask anyway.


If you’re having trouble, request a copy of the prescription from your doctor. Normally just a simple phone call, “Hey, make a copy, I’ll swing by and pick it up after lunch.” The staff usually handles things like that. It’s even easier if they email it to you.

Anywhere. Literally any CPAP supply store. Or Amazon.

I have bought various fit packs online from various CPAP vendors with a prescription. Those vendors who want a prescription I don’t buy from.

I have purchased 3 masks without a prescription from thecpapshop. They shipped quickly and I was able to return the one that did not work.

You can buy the separate parts also on Ebay.

RE: Anyone know who sells masks with no prescription?
There is a loophole in the prescription law regarding masks. It seems that parts are exempt. If you purchase the complete mask, consisting of the mask and headgear, it will require a prescription. However, if you purchase the individual parts separately, again the mask and headgear, it doesn't require a prescription.

One of those, "go figure" moments. Dont-know
