I had a sleep study, and my insurance paid for a cpap machine. However, the machine does not automatically sense my apnea and adjust air pressure accordingly. So, I have to make an appointment to go into a sleep center and have them readjust the air pressure. Which would be fine, except that I don't want to have to wait 2 months for an appointment ! BS ! I'd rather just go buy the damn machine out of pocket and not have to screw with an appointment over this adjustment. I'm a big boy, and understand the protocols for upping the air pressure .5 cm . Argh !
Thanks for your feedback. I understand this now.
My PCP did order a sleep study, but I had to make an appointment with a specialist - a nurse practitioner to actually set up a sleep study. Therefore, I had to make a copay that seems to me an extra charge that was not really needed. So could someone enlighten me and tell me
why I had to make an appointment with a "middle-man" to actually get a sleep study ? Although the nurse was very professional, it feels to me like I'm getting gouged by the health care system. and now, I have to go back to this specialist - nurse to follow up. Why can't I just follow up with my PCP ? Thanks in advance for help explaining this to me.
