Do I need follow-ups with my PCP or anyone else? I did not get any initial info such as my sleep test AHI or any goals I need to meet. I did download Sleepyhead and as you can see I am more of a "highly engaged" patient type, so I don't have a problem learning about my condition and setting the machine on my own, I just don't want to march forward using google as my doctor if it's not recommended.
Eventually I will probably get a new PCP and get them engaged in my treatment, but getting that ball rolling and getting settled will probably take months, especially since I will probably have to go out of town to get a new doctor.
Dee, first you need to get a copy of your sleep study. So contact the provider who did your sleep test and ask for a copy of the raw data study as well as the final report. THEN, get a copy of your prescription from your doc. Whether you need to see your PCP again depends on your insurance company. Most require a follow-up to pay for your machine. You'll need to contact your insurance company about it.
