Did you know that you can often get a CPAP prescription from your primary care physician? If your doctor has a record of your sleep study or knows that you use PAP therapy, he or she will most likely be happy to write a prescription for your supplies also. This method can also generally be completed faster than going through a specialist. We have our own Express prescription form your doctor can use.

Your prescription can be handwritten on a standard prescription pad. It must include the physician's name, contact information and signature of the care provider; your name; and a statement about the equipment needed, for example “CPAP”, “BiPAP”, ““CPAP Mask”, “CPAP Humidifier” or “CPAP Supplies”. Ideally, the prescription for a CPAP machine will also include a pressure setting. If this information is not included on the prescription, it may be provided by the patient.

Note: Under HIPPA regulations, you have a right to request a prescription from your physician. If you have difficulty accessing your prescription, please contact our Customer Service team for assistance.

Prescriptions may be written for "Lifetime Need" or "99 Months". Such a prescription may be used for the prescribed equipment as often as needed to continue therapy. If a prescription notes a number of refills, it will be valid to dispense the listed equipment the number of times shown on the prescription. If a prescription bears an expiration date, the prescription is good through the date shown. If you are not sure about your prescription, send it to us and we will determine if it is valid.
