RE: Online supplier
I'm now on Medicare as of last October. My supplies are now completely covered by Medicare and BC/BS, which is now my supplemental insurance. 

My last shipment of supplies was well over a month ago. No more invoices!  like

RE: Online supplier
bmanley, I told you in post #5 that you must look for a "participating provider" by using the online search tool from Medicare. This will ensure you are not balance billed for amounts charged above what Medicare allows. http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Thread-...#pid341355 Please read the post and find a participating provider in your area.

RE: Online supplier
Agreed, that is why I started shopping online....  I needed a new machine before my insurance would allow...locally I think the machine was near $2000....shopped online and purchased a great machine for under $500....   The local shops/providers are screwing the system...That's why insurance costs so much....

I have found the same with masks and supplies... 

Masks are a pain....I used to use a Respironics Comfort Classic....It was the best mask ever....  I have not found an equal yet...I believe these companies are cost saving the quality out of their products....and I would guess the designers are not users so they have no idea what works and what doesn't...  My small rant....
