Looking for Medicare provider

Wed, 05 May 2021 22:43:44 GMT

I'm a Medicare CPAP user who's having a problem finding a company that carries the Bleep Dreamport system and also accepts Medicare for payment. My insurance company is Apria. I was told by my local rep here in Honolulu, Hawaii that Apria doesn't carry Bleep and also that she doubted Medicare would cover it, especially the disposable Dreamports. I saw in this forum that Lincare might meet my needs, but I saw the following on their website that they don't cover Honolulu, HI . "Lincare is a contracted Medicare Provider for CPAP Equipment, Supplies and Services.* *Excluding the following areas: Baton Rouge, LA, Honolulu, HI, Poughkeepsie-Newburgh-Middletown, NY, and Scranton-Wilkes-Barre, PA." Is there a company where I can buy the Dreamport solution with Medicare paying for it? Thanks for any help and also for providing a great product! Mahalo.

Just a followup...I went on the cpaptalk forum and was told that both Aeroflow and Nationwide will meet my needs. I'm looking into both and will report back on what I find.

Good news. This morning I contacted AeroFlowCPAP and confirmed that they carry Bleep and that Medicare will cover it, which is great! So I placed the order with them. Just a quick comment about my brief experience with AeroFlow CPAP. I really like their website and how easy it was to create a patient account and to plug in all my CPAP details. My patient account also showed exactly what supplies I was Medicare eligible for. Also, the rep I spoke with was very knowledgeable. They made the ordering process very easy. I'm very happy that Medicare will pay for this, but if they didn't, I would have gone out of pocket, which I did to try it out a few months ago. It's been a real difference maker for me. I can't see ever going back to a traditional type mask!
