    question re: CPAP cost & need
    melmige1 posted:
    I recently was diagnosed with moderate obstructive sleep apnea. The Dr. recommended a cpap machine. After my insurance portions of the monthly payment for this thing it is $116 out of my pocket! Is this the norm on cost? Should I shop around? Should I explore other options first? I just hate treating the symptom and not the cause. Seems like a money racket to me. But I'm not very trusting of the Dr's here in WV. Too many pill addicts running around here because of so many unethical greedy Dr's. Any advice?
