Sample CPAP Prescription

From Apnea Board Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

To assist members in obtaining the equipment that they need and as a matter of fulfilling equipment preference, a sample CPAP prescription form has been created to use as a tool for patients to submit to their health care provider.

The form may be filled in by the patient to indicate the patient's needs and preferences, then submitted to their doctor who may generate a prescription based on the form.

On the form, you will find a list of equipment commonly used by CPAP patients, corresponding Medicare codes and a generalized replacement schedule.

To fill in the form, indicate with an "X" in the space provided next to the equipment needed. Multiple "X" indications are usually required to specify machine, mask, and tubing. The notes area may be filled in with specific preferences such as "Dispense Resmed Airsense 10 Autoset for Her, do not substitute" and/or "Dispense Resmed Airfit P10, do not substitute".
