Newbie needs advice
#1
Newbie here, recently (1/3) diagnosed with OSA. Found out today that I have to meet my 1k deducible, meaning cost of machine will be out of pocket. Any suggestions?? I was quoted a price of approximately $800. For an S9 auto. Unfortunately it is winter here and the branches are bare on the money tree I grow in the backyard. Thanks

Hi Lindsk, welcome aboard
If the S9 is new S9 AutoSet (not Escape Auto) model and include the humidifier ... good price. Model name printed next to power button

Phillips Respirncis system one machines are as good and cheaper than Resmed machines
Check Supplier #2 for reasonable priced machines (new and gently used)

is that the price with the humidifier?

Someone suggested in another post to try the American Sleep Apnea Association; not sure if you would qualify since you have insurance but have to meet the deductible but it can't hurt to check

Hi Lindsk,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
You might take a look at the supplier list on this board at the top of each page and look at Supplier #2.
They have either open-box or gently used machines at good prices.
Best of luck to you and hang in there for more responses to your post.
