I have a Resmed airsense 10 autoset that I have been using for a month. This device is given to me on a rental plan and I can return it if needed. Right now, given that I have met my deductible I pay only the 20% co-insurance. Come January I am responsible for around 200$ per month for this device for 10 months that comes to 2000$ where as the device is much cheaper in the open market. I also have to meet the nurse practitioner every 30 days to go over the device settings where as I get all the information I need from the data downloaded in sleepy head. According to the practice this is an insurance requirement but to me it seems like a scheme for additional billing. Over all I seem to be doing pretty well on what I can see in sleepy head and I don't think that the practice can give me any new information by meeting them every 30 days. I am also on an automatic refill plan which I plan to get out off and buy only refill as needed. Can anyone suggest what machines I should be looking at in the open market?

  1. Philips Resprionics - comes to around 800 with the humidifier and the heated tube.
  2. Resmed airsense 10 autoset - have three months of supply that I think will last for 6 months at least and I can buy what I need from Amazon or other sites as and when needed. Any feedback or thoughts based on your personal experience? I feel that Resmed accessories are costlier but I may be wrong. Can I use my Resmed mask with the resprionics machine. Does anybody know?
