For the S9, I was looking for a name on the front name-plate like Escape, Elite or Autoset. Anyway, the Airsense 10 Autoset or Autoset for Her will be a nice upgrade that has the same Medicare HCPCS code as any other CPAP. It is the best machine you can get with that code. Her prescription should include a CPAP E0601NU, and it helps if the doctor will also specify auto-CPAP and Resmed Airsense 10 Autoset as additional descriptors. Without the additional definition in the prescription, the supplier could give you a CPAP from China and call it good. The prescription should also include a E0562 heated humidifier, A4604 heated tube, and patient's choice of mask. Work with the doctor to get a specific prescription, and you will not have to worry about what the supplier dispenses!
Here is a list of HCPCS codes. Many different products, and various feature levels fit into these codes.

The Co. She is with wants to repair the machine and give her a loaner. This is the second time this machine has been repaired. I tried to get them to give her a new one but they said she had to wait until next year. Can I find another Co. Thats takes Medicare and get a new one from them?
Do you know when the last machine was issued? Medicare generally wants 5-years out of a machine, but if the machine is not functional, then will approve a new one.
What kind of problems does the machine currently have? Why does it need repaired or replaced?
Have you looked to see if this is a Escape, Elite or Autoset?
After the machine is on for a while,it makes a loud sound of flowing air.I removed the humidifier and checked all of the seals and cleaned them.It locks correctly and the mask fits good.I boiled it down to the machine not the humidifier.
