Medicare Coverage for CPAP & Supplies

Are you enrolled in Medicare or have patients who are?

We reviewed Medicare coverage for sleep studies here.

In this post, learn about Medicare Part B coverage for CPAP and other PAP therapy (Part B covers certain doctor’s services, out patient care, medical supplies and preventative services).

Does Medicare cover CPAP and other PAP therapy for sleep apnea?

Yes. Medicare covers a 3-month trial of for CPAP therapy (learn more about CPAP here) if you’ve been diagnosed wtih obstructive sleep apnea (learn more about OSA here) and meet one of the following criteria:

  • AHI or RDI > 15 events per hour with a minimum of 30 events or
  • AHI or RDI > 5 to14 events per hour with a minimum of 10 events recorded and documentation of:
    • Excessive daytime sleepiness, impaired cognition, mood disorders or insomnia; or
    • Hypertension, ischemic heart disease or history of stroke

Here’s a link to learn more about AHI and RDI, how they’re calculated and what they mean.

Medicare also requires both:

  1. A face-to-face clinical evaluation by the treating physician prior to a sleep test assessing the patient for OSA
  2. That the patient or their caregiver received instruction from the CPAP supplier in the proper use and care of CPAP

If you are successful with the 3-month trial of PAP, Medicare may continue coverage if the following criteria are met:

  • Clinical re-evaluation between the 31st and 91st day after starting therapy, to include:
    1. Treating physician documents that the patient is benefiting from therapy; and
    2. Objective evidence of usage is reviewed by the treating physician

The CPAP supplies (the DME or HME company) can provide the objective data either though a direct data download (learn more about smart CPAP machines here) or through a visual inspection of the usage data documentation provided in a written report that is reviewed by the physician and included in the patient’s medical record. Many other insurance companies are now following Medicare’s lead and requiring proof of usage before continuing to pay for the machine. Learn more about that here.

If adherence to therapy is not documented within the first three months, the patient fails the trial period. If the patient wants to resume therapy, s/he must start the process over with a new face-to-face evaluation and in-center sleep study (home sleep testing is not sufficient).

How does Medicare define CPAP compliance or adherence?

Medicare defines adherence as using the device more than 4 hours per night for 70% of nights (that’s 21 nights) during a consecutive 30 day period any time in the first three months of initial usage.

What is the rental term for PAP therapy?

If the 3-month trial is successful (see above) Medicare will continue to cover the PAP device on a rental basis for up to 13 months in total up to the purchase price of the device (learn about the difference between CPAP rental and purchase here). 

Will Medicare cover CPAP if I had a machine before I got Medicare?

Yes, Medicare may cover rental or a replacement CPAP machine and/or CPAP supplies if you meet certain requirements.

When does Medicare cover bi-level or BiPAP?

Medicare will cover a bi-level respiratory assist device without backup (this is what they call a bi-level or BiPAP) for patients with obstructive sleep apnea if the patient meets the criteria for PAP therapy (outlined above) and:

  1. CPAP is tried and proven ineffective based on therpeutic trial conducted in either a facility (sleep center) or home setting.
  2. A face-to-face clinical re-evaluation is completed during the 3-month trial period. The physician must document that the following issues were addressed prior to changing from CPAP:
    1. Mask fit and comfort (read more about different types of mask and how they fit here)
    2. CPAP pressure setting prevent tolerating therapy and lower settings were tried, but failed to:
      1. Control symptoms of OSA; or
      2. Improve sleep; or
      3. Reduce AHI/RDI to acceptable levels

If the patient switches to a bi-level device within the 3-month trial, the length of the trial is not changed as long as there are at least 30 days remaining. If less than 30 days remain of the trial period, re-evaluation must occur before the 120th day (following the same criteria as CPAP adherence). 

What is required in the initial face-to-face clinical evaluation?

Written entries of the evaluation may include:


  • Signs and symptoms of sleep disordered breathing including snoring, daytime sleepiness, observed apneas, choking or gasping during sleep, morning headaches
  • Duration of symptom
  • Validated sleep hygiene inventory such as the Epworth Sleepiness Scale (you can download the scale here)


  • Focused cardiopulmonary and upper airway system evaluation
  • Neck circumference (this is a risk factor for OSA, learn more here)
  • Body mass index (BMI)

What information does Medicare require on the prescription for CPAP and supplies?

  1. Beneficiary/patient’s name
  2. Treating physician’s name
  3. Date of order
  4. Detailed description of items (type of device and supplies, pressure setting for machine)
  5. Physician signature and signature date
  6. Physician’s NPI
  7. Length of need
  8. Diagnosis

How often does Medicare cover replacement PAP supplies?

Here’s an outline of the Medicare supply replacement schedule. For more detail (including how to tell when your equipment needs to be replaced, check out this post).

Supply replacement schedule


How much will Medicare pay for a CPAP or other PAP machine?

Medicare will pay 80% of the Medicare-approved amount for a PAP device after you’ve met your Part B deductible (learn about this and other insurance terms here). If you have a secondary insurance, they may pick up the remaining 20% (read our post about how much sleep studies cost here).

While Advanced Sleep Medicine Services, Inc. is not contracted to bill CPAP machines and supplies for Medicare patients (we do bill for sleep studies), we are contracted with many managed care groups or HMOs that manage Medicare beneficiaries.

    • Kevin Young Reply

      He will likely need a new study if its been more then 3-6 months depending on the insurance. Some plans for commercial insurance may allow just a detailed compliance with new office notes. Also note that if Medicare is still in play that BiPAP and CPAP are considered same and similar hcpc codes and will need further documentation to bill and/or obtain new.

    Does medicre pay for the Airing-Micro Cpap machine

    • Kevin Young Reply

      Medicare pays a set price, fee schedule, for a CPAP device, the type of CPAP you receive is between you and your provider but the minimal amount of profit between the providers cost and what they actually get reimbursed generally doesn’t allow them to provide more than the basic model needed. Sometimes you can negotiate with the provider to pay the difference.

      Yes, if you can find a provider that can do the download they will generally help out cause sometimes they convert it to a sale, you may need sanitary wipes or something. The provider, as long as they are accredited, are sworn to be HIPPA compliant so no worries about your medical info being breached.

    I have used a CPAP machine for several years, but was not on Medicare until a couple of months ago. I had to change providers as the one I was using shut down their office in my town. The new provider has decided to no longer carry the particular mask I am using and told me they would order replacement supplies but I would have to pay up front and then file with insurance myself. As Medicare is my primary payer and BCBS is secondary, is this allowed? I thought if they accepted Medicare payments for other equipment, they would have to file.

    I have had a c-pap machine for 3 1/2 years now but I can not run or read a daily report from it. I think the machine is more like 5 years old, was rented through a provider through Medicare. I have problems with almost all the mask due to my nose structure that causes leaks. I really need a machine that I can read or print a daily report. If I pay for the machine myself because the 5 years are not up. will Medicare pay for the supplies from here forward or will my medicare help with supplies be cut off?

    I feel a CPAP cleaner is medically necessary because of all the germs and bacteria that builds up in the CPAP. I have allergies and my eyes swell up, my nose gets stuffy, I cough a lot and those are medical problems.

  22. Lynn Hyman Reply

    I have been using CPAP for 10 years and just started Medicare in January. They required a sleep study before they would pay anything on my supplies. I did the sleep study and the tech told me I did not meet Medicare Guidlines. (>5-15 apnea’s and +4 O2 desaturation). I did not snore very much while I was there. I snore very loudly most times and my husband witnesses me stopping breathing. So now what’s do I do?
    Do I assume that from one nite of lite snoring that I don’t have apnea anymore? Should the test be repeated? Do I have any recourse with Medicare on this. Can I appeal and if sop who can I appeal to?

    My machine even though I clean it the water chamber where air filters is not getting cleaned enough and my sinuses get infected and then I can’t use it for many days cause I really got to clean and sterilize it and give time for infection to clear up.
    If the cpap machine is medically necessary then the sterilization of it should be to.
    Where can one put in a argument with Medicare over this. Thanks for your time,

    Those wishing for a So-Clean machine should know that ‘Clean’ is in the name only – They do NOT ‘clean’ anything and you still need to thoroughly wash your mask and hose periodically. A So-Clean machine just generates ionized air which disinfects your CPAP system – The skin cells on your mask and saliva on your mask will remain there as well as anything which gets into your hose until you wash those items – A So-Clean doesn’t really ‘clean’ anything . . . . it just disinfects. Don’t you hate it when they name a machine for something it doesn’t do?

    I was prescribed a cpap for my severe sleep apnea.I had a sleep study.When the pressures on that machine were not high enough I had another sleep study to determine a correct pressure change. I received a new machine that would reach those pressures. After those pressures were not effective I had another sleep study to determine what pressures would be best. I was prescribed a bpap machine. I had another sleep study and it was determined that that machine could not be set at the pressures needed. In order to get a new machine I had another sleep study. A new bipap “s” was ordered. After a very bad experience with the initial provider I refused to work with them. The physician’s office did not listen to me and used the same provider. It took them 2 weeks to get the correct machine. At that time I told them I would not work with them. I have just called the physician’s office and they tell me I must have another sleep study since it has been 30 days since the last one and insurance requires a sleep study after that 30 day requirement.
    They want a new study.
    I have medicare and a supplemental. Why must I have another study? What is this 30 insurance rule?
