It took me three weeks for me to get another machine due to an insurance change and my new insurance not being accepted with my first DME.
You think the transfer from DME one to the other would be seamless.
I had to be at everyone like white on rice.
My friend had to wait two month span from the sleep test, titration, and insurance grind through to finally get his machine.
If everyone would just read the manual that comes in the box, most of the "training" would not be necessary. The only part I did not know already was about how and when to order replacement parts and that could have been covered by one page.
The title of this thread caught my eye as it took my DME about 4 full days to return a phone message. My clock was ticking on the 30 days for my first mask (Airfit P10) which I wanted to exchange for a Dreamwear. Thanks to all of the comments on this board, I've learned a great deal by reading over the past month.

My DME told me I'd have to wait about 10 days. I was really nice, but I just kept insisting that they figure out a way to get me in sooner. Fifteen minutes later, I had an appointment the next morning. I had severe OSA, so I probably had a bit more leverage than someone with mild OSA. I was prescribed static Bi-PAP, but they gave me a Dreamstation Bi-PAP auto.
In my experience, almost no one will just hang up on you while you're being super nice.
I saw my doc 1 week after the home sleep study, had my titration session 1 week later, the doc made out a prescription in 4 days, and I had the machine the next day. And honestly, I think the process could have been a bit quicker.
I like it when someone posts on an old thread with the right subject and replies that fit the subject. Is it better to start a new topic with the same type of info?
