Bleep Eclipse DME Provider

Bleep Eclipse DME Provider
Hey folks,

I know a couple of people on here are using Bleep products and I was curious... has anyone been able to successfully use insurance to get Bleep Eclipse supplies? I just got off the phone with my DME provider and they had never heard of Bleep and confirmed that they do not carry that product and could not provide me any supplies and bill my insurance.

The Bleep products I've bought so far have been out of pocket but I was hoping to start utilizing my insurance for this. Does anyone have any advice?

Thanks!

I understand AeroFlow out of NC will bill insurance and that they will be carrying the Eclipse in the next month or two.

I just received my three month supply of the bleep eclipse this morning from Aeroflow.  It was billed through Medicare.  Tonight will be an experiment to see how I like it.

Do let us know how you like Aeroflow and BLEEP. Like many, my DME (Apnix) has a limited selection of XPAP products (primarily only ResMed) and has never heard of Brevida (my current best mask but still looking) or BLEEP. Apnix handles my Medicare insurance smoothly but I'm ending up paying a lot out-of-pocket looking for a better mask, as well as buying secondary stuff like chin straps. I want to find a decent online DME that works with Medicare and has a wide selection. Online, AeroFlow's selection looks great...but service is critical. I'm interested in trying BLEEP and maybe TAP (I'm struggling with the headgear...among other things). Looking forward to hearing about your experience!!

Cheers!

As far as Aeroflow they seem to be ok, it took about a week to receive my bleep eclipse supplies.  Wore it last night for the first time.  Overall it wasn’t a bad night. It will take sometime to master putting on the halos.  My ahi was 0.00 and leak rate was 4l/m.  I felt an annoying tugging on the mask but resolved it when I gave the tubing some slack.  When I used the dreamports there was no noise at all.. silent.  With the eclipse I did hear noise in inhalation.  I think it might have to do with the placement of the adhesive.  Overall I slept well.  I will try tonight to trim the halos a bit and will report back my results.

Good to know that Aeroflow is pretty good as they seem to be one of the only options if you are trying to get insurance to pay for your Bleep supplies. Aeroflow has some bad reviews online. Funny enough though, my current DME also has some a lot of bad reviews but I haven't had any issues with them (outside of them not carrying the Bleep Eclipse).

I too found that I could hear noise during inhalation. I found that hose management may be playing a role there. Try to avoid any sharp bends in the hose that is attached to the Bleep mask and see if that might help. When I did that I noticed I could barely hear any noise. I'm sure Stuart could provide some suggestions as well if you email him.
