I have Sleep Apnea ... what do I do now??

If you've recently been diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea, it can be overwhelming. When making the adjustment to begin treatment for improved sleep health with the use of CPAP, there are several things to consider.

Synergy Sleep Health believes in empowering people to make their own healthcare decisions. We provide a Respiratory Therapist with over 15 years of experience, who is also Registered in Sleep Medicine, and is a SLEEP COACH. We develop a sleep strategy for a healthy life while using your CPAP machine.
You may think that going through your insurance company is the least expensive and best way to get your CPAP machine and the needed CPAP supplies to go with it ... however, that may not always be the case.

  • In some cases, your responsibility may be up to 80% - 100% toward the purchase or rental of your CPAP machine, depending on insurance coverage. At Synergy Sleep Health, we provide pricing that can be well below your deductible.
  • When you go through many insurance companies for your CPAP, the machine may not actually be yours for at least for 3-13 months. Many insurance companies require compliance reports to show that you are successfully using your machine a set hours each night. This can be difficult when you are starting your CPAP therapy and determining what settings and options work best for you. Failure to meet the requirements may mean you have to give the machine back or pay an inflated insurance price for the machine outright. When you get your CPAP machine from Synergy Sleep Health ... it's 100% yours.
  • When using your insurance for your CPAP machine, additional visits to the doctor may be a requirement for the insurance company's continued coverage of the machine.
  • If you change insurance before your CPAP machine is completely paid for, your new insurance company may not pick up the balance of the payments, therefore leaving your fully responsible.
