Background: I am a 25 year old male with no complications associated with or derived from sleep apnea. Got tested a bit ago and came back with mild to moderate apnea.
Problem: I have an appointment tomorrow to do some more tests or whatever but the problem is that my health insurance company wants to charge me 1k to do this test, which apparently is a test to tell me what air pressure I need for a CPAP.
Now, 1k is a lot of money or what I deem a crap piece of knowledge that I could otherwise invest in a good piece DME and tune myself, ostensibly with built-in software on the CPAP or just using a pulse occimeter for calibration. However, if the appointment tomorrow will include the CPAP machine that I need to get on with my life, then I am OK with spending the 1k. Either way, I am canceling it until I get some answers from my insurance company.
Does anyone have any insight into these matters? Would it be better for me to get assessed by an independent facility? Can I pull it off myself? Anyone else think the same way?
Any help is appreciated.
