Can't see Neurologist for compliance
#1
Question 
Can't see Neurologist for compliance
I have had a problem seeing the neurologist that wrote Rx for CPAP. I am now beyond the
90 days for compliance.

Can my primary verify compliance - I can bring resmed myair printout, and supplier for
coao can fax compliance info to doc.

Does anything special need to be written to indicate I am in compliance?

Thanks.

RE: Can't see Neurologist for compliance
It depends on why you need to certify compliance. If your machine was funded through insurance then there is presumably a DME in the mix - they are normally the people you should be talking to.

If it's for a transport driver's license then you should check with your local DOT, but I imagine any GP could do it for you.

It is through insurance.
There is a DME provider.

I will try contacting the DME provider and see what happens...

The DME will need the SD card out of your machine to look at compliance and (hopefully) how things are going otherwise.

As an aside, the System 1 is a pretty old machine now - if it's been supplied in the last 90 days I would expect them to provide a current model DreamStation or Resmed AirSense 10.
