What is my current CPAP provider not telling me?

Your current provider is charging you and your insurance company up to 3 times more than Activa Medical charges for the exact same CPAP and CPAP supplies!  How is this possible?  We don't charge you for the service of routinely shipping your supplies to you or for the service of billing your insurance provider.  Many local durable medical equipment (DME) companies will also bill your insurance for a higher priced CPAP machine and mask and then give you the lowest qualtiy and priced CPAP machine and CPAP mask because the insurance company doesn't care which one you get.  Insurance companies reimburse the DME company the same amount for any CPAP machine or mask because they are billed off a standard insurance code.  Activa Medical will always make sure you have the right CPAP machine and mask for your needs, and then charge you the lowest possible price, not the highest.  Because of these examples, and many others like it, your current provider has extremely high overhead costs which requires them to pass those costs on to you.  We don't do that.  We pass the SAVINGS on to you.  For more information on this, please read " why shop with us ."

Because of the significant cost advantages that web-based CPAP suppliers have, CPAPs are now more commonly purchased over the Internet on a national and global scale.  There are several companies that offer this type of service, however, be sure that your internet provider is an " authorized distributor " for the manufacturer of the CPAP otherwise your warranties will be void.  Lastly, keep in mind the restrictions on cost and/or provider which your insurance company may impose. Some insurance companies will cover only certain types of CPAP devices and supplies leaving you holding the remainder of the charges.  And if you're working with a traditional DME company, that can add up to significant amounts of money.
