Im new to this board and also to the apnea world I have been diagnosed and im to the point where im getting my machine. Here is my situation.
Im overweight and Im seriously in the process of loosing weight (30 pounds so far) and I know that if I loose weight my apnea will improve. I requested a auto cpap machine so that in the event the apnea gets better the auto cpap would auto adjust.
The lady said that my insurance approved me for the regular cpap machine and that they will need to go thru the hassle with getting a new prescription and a new insurance request to see if the insurance will approve the auto cpap.
She also stated that I can go to the doctor and calibrate my cpap if I need it.. ( I know I can do it myself)
My question is should I just go ahead and let her do the cpap machine setup or should I fight to get the autocpap? My insurance is united health care and could be a pain as i'm sure some of you know.
Any comments or suggestions are appreciated.
