You will need to contact a DME vendor in order to get your prescription filled and obtain the equipment. Many insurance companies are in contract with specific DME providers. Therefore, it is a good idea to call your insurance to verify which providers are covered. If you are able to go to any vendor, please refer to the DME listed below.
Once you have chosen a specific vendor, the vendor requires the following: insurance information, prescription, and sleep study report. You may need to complete authorization forms to allow the Sleep Disorders Clinic to provide the necessary medical documentation. If you had your study done at the Stanford Sleep Disorders Clinic, the completed authorization form should be faxed to the Stanford Sleep Disorders Clinic at 650-721-3448 or mailed to the clinic. No medical documentation will be sent to the vendor if the form is incomplete. If you have any questions regarding the form, you can reach us at 650-721-7500.
The vendor will then contact your insurance for DME coverage. Upon approval, a vendor will set up an appointment time and date with you to provide apparatus to your home and will give further instructions.
In some cases, the equipment provider will need additional information, such as a Letter of Medical Necessities. If this is the case, they should contact the Sleep Clinic.
It's always a good idea to have a follow up appointment with your sleep physician after you start using your PAP therapy.
