Price of AirFit F10 Mask
Hi all. First, this post is not indented to make any judgments on dme of choice, but simply to get a sense of what may be considered as reasonable price.

I have been quoted $310.00 for AirFit F10 Mask and although my employer insurance covers this, I am thinking that this is quite high and I only get one mask per year. Does this price sound reasonable for this mask?

Thanks!

RE: Price of AirFit F10 Mask
Many DME suppliers will quote outrageous prices for items, with full awareness they will never be reimbursed that amount. Reimbursement amounts are set by contracts between the in-network supplier and the insurance company. You may be able to see the actual amount paid by looking at the settled claim after-the-fact. They will likely be reimbursed about half that amount.

The invoice price is a fantasy, and meaningless in this case. If you are personally responsible for the costs, then shopping for the best price is essential. However in this case, the amount that will be paid has already been settled; you just don't know what that is.
