Another avenue is to go thru your supplemental insurance if Medicare s being a pain.

RE: Very Strange Indeed
Thanks for your response. It makes me feel somewhat better. My pulmonologist wants to see me in about 30 days. The sleep center gave me a paper with the name of a different doctor that I never heard of to call for an appointment to discuss results. I was unsure if I should call for that appointment or just wait the 30 days and go back to my pulmonologist. What would you recommend?

RE: Very Strange Indeed
Sleeprider, thank you for your response.  I will call Medicare for rule clarification. If they are okay with my original sleep study, which I do have a copy of, then how would I go about getting this last study thrown out? I have been on CPAP for 8+ years and I can attest that my negative symptoms are corrected by compliant use of my equipment. The level of care a patient receives should never be compromised just because someone gets old and has no choice but to use Medicare. I've had two doctors lately tell me they don't accept Medicare period. Now this! My first impression of Medicare is a very negative one at this point. Hope that changes over the next few weeks.
