Sad Help! Anyway to alter info on memory card?
I've had my machine for almost 3 months and had nothing but problems with the mask, settings, etc., for the first two. Finally got everything somewhat configured and was told by my rep that I need 21 days over the next 30 with more than 4 hours for the insurance company to pay for it.

I've been really good about it up until last week when I had to go out of town. When packing, I forgot the cord! Needless to say, the most days I will have this month are 18 out of 30, so I wont make the minimum to keep the machine.

I called their office last week when I returned home saying what happened and they told me they would get an extension of a week from the insurance company. I just got my mail to find a letter saying my request was denied and if I can't produce the minimum requirement, they will take back the machine and charge me for whatever other accessories and products.

Needless to say, I'm freaking out! I see on the memory card there are files, and I know this is probably a big NO-NO, but is there anyway to alter the info, such as copy from another day just to get the requirement?

Thank you!

It's been so difficult for me because I travel often for work, maybe a day here or two or there days there, but at the end of the month, that really ads up.

I can't afford to outright by one on my own, so I'm hoping I can "trick" the card so I can meet the requirements... fingers crossed Bigwink

What you are asking for is basically insurance fraud. I sympathize with your situation but this board cannot assist you in an illegal act.

I suggest you quickly appeal the decision.

As moderator, I am locking this thread.

You are asking for help in committing insurance fraud (illegal in most countries). This gets your account banned.

Sorry, we have a very low tolerance threshold for illegal activity.

That said, I wish you all the best in solving your problems.
