No matter who your health insurance provider is, there is an overwhelmingly good chance that they cover certain categories of CPAP products.  When considering which CPAP supplies to cover, most insurance companies follow what Medicare does and follows Medicare’s CPAP supplies reimbursement schedule.

What CPAP Products are Not Covered by Insurance?

Since, private health insurance companies typically will follow Medicare’s reimbursement schedule, they usually do not insure/reimburse anything that does not have a HCPCS code.  The products that are usually not covered by insurance companies are ones that they consider “non-essential” to CPAP therapy.  This includes products like travel machines, accessories, and cleaning products.  For a comprehensive list of what is not covered by Medicare (therefore, many private payers), visit our CPAP Products Not Covered by Insurance post.
