Sleep Therapy: An Adjustment Worth Making!

CPAP/BiPAP therapy can be an extremely effective treatment for sleep apnea. Many patients report life-changing improvements once they have their sleep apnea under control. They no longer feel tired during the day, some lose weight, and most have quickly resorted to living productive, healthy lives.

Unfortunately, some patients find it difficult to adapt to the treatment at first. Their new sleep routine now includes air pressure, a mask and headgear – and even though the solution to their problems is right on their nightstand, they stop using their equipment and abandon their therapy.

Tips for Sleep Therapy Success

 

CPAP Compliance Requirements

Sleep therapy only works if you use the CPAP/BiPAP machine at your prescribed settings, every night.  Medicare and most insurance plans require patients use the device a minimum amount in the first 90 days, or they will no longer cover the treatment. To be considered compliant, you must use your CPAP device for at least 4 hours a night, for at least 70% of the nights.  You are also required to have a follow-up appointment with your doctor between the 31st and 90th day of treatment, and the doctor must review objective evidence of your compliance with insurance requirements for use as well as document that you are benefitting from the use of the device.

For these reasons, it is important that you use your sleep therapy equipment as much as possible when you sleep, and let us know if you are having any difficulties so we can address them early.  Most insurance plans, including Medicare, require a new sleep study if you are not compliant with use of the device within the first 90 days. Our goal is to help you reach compliance as soon as possible so you can enjoy all the benefits of a better night’s sleep!
