At least the machine will be mine after 14 more payments. It is still cheaper than if I bought a mask or parts but really... $5.48 for a filter, insurance paid $4.38 and stuck me with $1.10. This is after I paid my full deductible earlier this year for the the sleep study.
The health insurance I had in 2014 only paid 50% of the Aetna negotiated rate for durable medical equipment. Unless you have animals where pet goo gets sucked up into the filter or you live in the dust bowl, you really only need to change the filter occasionally. Monthly is a DME scam.
