Can I get two Machines with my prescription?

Can I get two Machines with my prescription?
I just finished my sleep study and have severe sleep apnea AHI 67.1. It looks like I'll be waiting for a while before I get my ResMed AirCurve 10, but I see I can possibly buy a used one or maybe get an airmini. I still want my insurance to buy the new one, but in the meantime can I buy, out of pocket, a used machine as well basically having 2 machines?

Sure, check Craig’s list or FB for private seller or get a script from your Dr. and buy from a supplier online. There’s a vendors list on here and a few of them deal in used machines as well.

There's no reason you would be restricted from buying a machine out of pocket as long as you have a prescription. No one, including your doctor, insurance or DME needs to be aware of that.

Let your insurance coverage pay for the new one. And it's good to have a backup.
