Yes...they pay 85% of everything.

Lincare is my dme. They've been pretty good so far...obviously didn't try to sell me a brick.

I guess one of the nice things about the aircurve, is I can always try it out in cpap and see if I can get by. Cpap with epr of 3 may be enough pressure support for me. In which case an older s9 might due in a pinch. Still pricey, but not 2 grand.

Will be in the UK by next month. I'll still keep the U.S. Health care while there.

With treatment, my spo2 is around 95 and above. So doc was not too concerned about it.

I was wondering about the DME because with Appria, I accidently got a new machine (well it had a few hours on it) before my 5 years was up and my insurance paid for it (at least I did not pay for it). So now my old machine is my backup although that was not necessarily my original intent.

Best Regards,

When someone becomes serious about the therapy, that is the point to stop worrying about them.

Worry instead about those who don't worry. There are 12 million OSA sufferers in the USA alone, and 11 million of them are worry-free, because they either don't know they even have this exceptionally-dangerous issue, or they are in denial about it and are not accepting the therapy that could extend their lives by decades.
