Have to send SD card back to DME?
#1
One month in and my supplier has me send the SD card in. I have to do this again in a few more months.
What is this for actually?

Just saw my Doctor and the review of all my data was just about perfect.

Hi ypeels,
It's probably for insurance purposes.
Hang in there for more responses to your post.

If not mistaken, the insurance require that you,re using the machine at least 4 hours per day 70% of the time in the first 30 days to pay for the machine. Maybe you,re on a "rent to own" a period of 13 months in which they have to check your compliance so they can get paid by insurance

More than likely, trish is correct. The reason the DME wants to look at your data is so that they can prove to your insurance company you are using your machine.
INFORMATION ON APNEA BOARD FORUMS OR ON APNEABOARD.COM SHOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED AS MEDICAL ADVICE. ALWAYS SEEK THE ADVICE OF A PHYSICIAN BEFORE SEEKING TREATMENT FOR MEDICAL CONDITIONS, INCLUDING SLEEP APNEA. INFORMATION POSTED ON THE APNEA BOARD WEB SITE AND FORUMS ARE PERSONAL OPINION ONLY AND NOT NECESSARILY A STATEMENT OF FACT.

Stupid insurance requirement.

Just like when I had to have a $2,500 sleep study to show I still needed a $1,000 machine when my old one was dying. Total OOP for them? $3,500. To my way of thinking, $3,500 > $1,000. But then I'm not an insurance company, just an accountant.
