time for ASV?
Obviously this is just my own experience, but for what it's worth on the insurance concerns, I'll share what happened to me. Please take note that I cannot make you do any action, this is for educational purposes.

I learned here how to access the clinical setup mode for the DreamStation BiPAP. I had posted pics from Sleepyhead and other AB members gave suggestions on settings. I chose to change the settings as described. The results were somewhat better, but as I learned, I'm a mixed apnea sufferer so BiPAP isn't going to be the right machine for me.

Here's the DME and doctor portion. Somewhere along my ASV path, I had phone conversations with each of those. When they say something like "We'll edit your settings. The BiPAP will receive it x number of minutes, hours, etc." I reply "Can you indicate what settings are changing and to what value? I'll change it now." Every time it's "You know how to do that?" "Yes I do." Every time so far, basically it's "OK. Guess that takes care of it."

I did have one time where the pulmonary tech and I had to go "lawyer talk". "In theory, in cases like mine, what are the changes and values at this stage?" End result? Nothing, but I changed the settings. Oh and I even mentioned it to an insurance customer service agent for some reason. No comment except OK have a nice day.
Sarcasm is a hobby of mine. I am not sarcastic on serious issues, implied or otherwise.
