Tonight is my first night with my bipap machine. I look forward to reading your stories and sharing my own experiences as they develop. Smile

Oooh, VPAP Auto Cool I was told it would cost me 6,000 out of pocket since the government wouldn't fund a thing like that, even if I needed it. Fancy. Hope it's working for you.

Sounds like someone was trying to rip you off. You can buy the machine online for $2800, and even through my DME it will only cost about $4000 via the rent to own payments. I'll pay about $1500 out of pocket when it's all said and done.

I wish more people were familiar with Supplier #2. Exceptional deals on used models show up there regularly. All the more so because the company is honest (stands behind what it sells).

Take care,

Membership in the Advisory Member group should not be understood as in any way implying medical expertise or qualification for advising Sleep Apnea patients concerning their treatment. The Advisory Member group provides advice and suggestions to Apnea Board administrators and staff on matters concerning Apnea Board operation and administrative policies - not on matters concerning treatment for Sleep Apnea. I think it is now too late to change the name of the group but I think Voting Member group would perhaps have been a more descriptive name for the group.

Just by crossing the border into Canada things automatically increase in price. Must be the weather.
