Buying masks from Lofta for the first time (prescription required?)

Buying masks from Lofta for the first time (prescription required?)
I want to try the P30i and P10 masks. I got my only mask (F20) through Apria with my insurance. I've heard a lot of bad things about Apria and I am not eligible for a new mask under insurance until late August. Should I buy the mask through Apria or can I use my prescription to buy through Lofta or [DME Link Removed] Supplier #1?  A prescription is required to buy masks on Supplier #1 but I don't see any warnings about a prescription being required on Lofta as I look at my shopping cart with the P30i in it. Does Lofta not require a prescription for mask purchases? Do I need a specific prescription for the mask I plan to purchase or do I just enter my insurance card info? Wanted to ask here before I call Apria, Lofta, or [DME Link Removed] Supplier #1 and commit to one.

Masks are personal for all of us and each online store has different policies. Some will only sell entire mask kits requiring a prescription, others will sell parts you can use to build your own. Consistently inconsistent.

You have a prescription, you just need to get a copy from your doctor. Once you have it you can buy anywhere.

I use Lofta as they will give you store credit to try a new system if the one you order doesn't suit your needs.

Nice. I had read similar comments on previous threads. I was able to buy the P30i and a N30i cushion on Lofta with no prescription required and will definitely keep that in mind if it doesn't work out and I want to try the P10 or F40 Smile.
