A couple of months before, I was diagnosed with sleep apnea and was in treatment with a CPAP recommended by my sleep specialist. I have been in therapy for the past six months. My doctor had advised me to replace the mask cushion and machine filters after six months, even if it was cleaned and well maintained. I want to change my CPAP provider as I bought my first machine prescribed by the doctor, which I'm almost using for past six months. So when I approached the same, the replacement of the cushion and filters cost the same as for a new set of CPAP. I searched online and came across different providers. As this is my first time buying a specific set of replacement than a new one, could someone advise me on some good and affordable ones if anyone have purchased such replacements?

Somehow I have not seen this post until today. In any case I think you are asking about buying a new mask. Mask preferences are quite individual. I would suggest staying with the one that you like and works for you. At places like cpap.com you should be able to get replacement cushions for much less than a new mask. I replace mine about once a year or longer if they look to be in good condition.
