Does Medicare Pay For Sleep Apnea Machines?

Medicare will pay for a CPAP machine if you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea. You must meet a set of criteria to be eligible for the equipment.

If you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, then you are eligible for Medicare coverage of a CPAP machine. A sleep study will be ordered by your doctor to determine if you have sleep apnea. The sleep study will monitor the amount of time that you are asleep; your sleep quality, including REM sleep; chest movement; heart rate; and breathing. If the results from the sleep study show that you have at least 5 episodes of apnea per hour, then you will be eligible for coverage of a CPAP machine.

A CPAP machine is considered durable medical equipment. DME is covered by Medicare if you have a medical need for it. To determine if you are eligible for DME, you will need a doctor's prescription. Your doctor can then submit a claim to Medicare on your behalf.

Once you have been determined to be eligible for DME based on a sleep study, you must continue to require this specific DME for the remainder of your life. If your needs change, your doctor may later submit a new claim for you to be eligible for a different or more advanced type of equipment, or a different level of coverage.
