That is bizarre... not sure where you are but if you're in the U.S., I'm pretty sure that most health care companies have to follow Medicare guidelines at a bare minimum for CPAP machines, masks & filters... yes, you might have varying out-of-pocket expenses and deductibles based upon what plan you signed up for, but for them to tell you that "it's not covered at all for two years" sounds very suspect.
Now, if you're outside the U.S., then I have no clue what is policy for your country.
I'm up in the Great White North. Just outside of Vancouver, actually. I'm with Pacific Blue Cross.
I agree that the two year statement seems a little much but it was all I could get out of the one representative. I'll update when I phone again and get a second opinion.
