ResMed AirSense 10 Question

The AutoSense 10 Autoset (that has full data capability) is $450 out of pocket.   Not happy about the prospect of paying $250 for those features.

I know some folks don't have insurance to cover any of it, so I shouldn't complain.   But the DMEs seem like they have an nice racket going on.  This one said they sell my an SD card for $10 to pull of the limited data.

Trying to decide how much I'll really use the data.

Take a look at what this machine costs from Supplier #33 and decide for yourself how badly you're being ripped off.  For $200 more, you could have a full featured Autoset with heated hose, and not deal with compliance, follow-up appointments (and costs) or other requirements.  You should complain because you pay significant premiums to have your healthcare managed and costs controlled, yet here is proof your insurance and provider are failing to provide value.
