are you responsible for say, 20%? you should only have to pay whatever % you are responsible for but of the allowed amount only. It doesn't matter what the DME bills your insurance company because the in network DME's have a contracted price with the insurance company and that is all they will get whether it is paid in full by the insurance company or partially by the insurance company and you.

Did the $1600 include the humidifier?

Yes it came with the humidifer. And yes about 20 %

Sure, they might not get the "big ticket" item of your CPAP machine, but masks, hoses, filters, liners, office visits for "check ups" and such add up in between when you might need a CPAP machine purchase.

Thanks i didnt think about that.
