If it turns out to be out-of-pocket, there are excellent deals now for new Philips Respironics System One model 560 (60-series) machines. For example, Supplier 1. (A link to the Supplier List is provided at the top of each forum page.)

These are auto-adjusting, fully data-capable (distinguishing central versus obstructive apnea), supported by SleepyHead and amazingly affordable right now. I recommend buying it with the heated tube option, which is more economical when included in the original purchase instead of adding it later.

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.
