I have recently been diagnosed with OSA and have been prescribed CPAP. I have a high deductible healthcare plan. If I pay out of pocket the price for a Resmed airsense 10 is $1900 including service or the insurance company wants me to rent one for $238 per month for one year (not sure of the allowed amount set by insurance). Is $1900 a decent price with service? What is normal when paying out of pocket? To rent or to buy?Thanks for any help.

I didnt pay out of pocket. Look into a preowned machine. I had to upgrade to a bipass after a year. Some folks hate these things and quit. I was concerned for my health and stuck w it. Do research online and good luck.

Hi everyone, how are you today? How did you finance your CPAP machine? Did you prefer to buy or rent? Do you think one option is better than another?

Hi all, my insurance company CIGNA paid for my machine, it’s taking some getting used too.

My insurance covered the majority of my machine, I pay a monthly amount for ten months to rent the machine, after that, I own it.
