Does Medicare pay for CPAP Equipment? Snoring is no fun. But if it’s sleep apnea you’re suffering from, a cranky partner is the least of your concerns. With obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), you’re in danger of contracting a whole host of other serious ailments, including diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, heart disease, and depression.
According to the National Sleep Foundation, more than 18 million U.S. adults suffer from sleep apnea, with prevalence as high as 10% to 20% in children who snore habitually. OSA happens to both genders in all age groups.
Thankfully, there’s continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy for sleep apnea sufferers. But will Medicare and other insurances cover the cost of CPAP machine usage?
The answer is yes, but you must meet certain conditions – very specific conditions, in fact.
