What if Patients Who Need CPAP Do Not Qualify for Insurance Coverage?
Some patients who will benefit from CPAP for sleep-disordered breathing, do not meet the Medicare or private insurer coverage criteria. These include patients who experience frequent arousals due to labored breathing, but no desaturations; patients with high respiratory disturbance indexes(RDI), and low AHIs (apnea / hypopnea index); and patients with URRS (upper respiratory resistance syndrome) but low AHIs and / or RDIs.
