Another Aussie here. 

I'm newly diagnosed and haven't got a machine yet (titration sleep test tonight).  My health fund, HCF, at my premium level pays either $500 or $600 every 3 years towards the machine but I don't know if that includes the attachments.

Any Ausies on Government Income support eg  Health or Concession Card Card holders and use a prescribed medical device eg CPAP machine, could be eligible for an annual $160 payment.

I receive it I'm on the aged pension.
Also check if your state has a electricity rebate such as NSW Govt Life Support Rebate.
