Q) I am an international customer, do I need to submit a copy of my prescription to order?

A) It is not required, however we encourage you submit the prescription so the devices may be programmed to your settings.

Q) Will my original prescription work?

A) Yes. Once your prescription is on file, it is good for lenght of time stated on the prescription. There is no need to submit a new one unless your physician makes a pressure adjustment to your machine. Should this happen, please just send us your updated prescription for your file so we may better serve you in the future.

Q) If I have a machine prescription, do I need a separate prescription to purchase a mask or humidifier?

A) You should ask your physician to state all required RX items on the RX. A CPAP or Bi-PAP/BiLevel machine prescription will require a statement for a CPAP mask, humidifier, and machine.

Q) If I have a machine prescription, do I need a separate prescription to purchase replacement parts for masks, machines or humidifiers?

A) No. Replacement parts such as mask frames, cushions, headgear, other mask parts, machine filters, humidifier chambers and other replacement parts do not require a prescription for purchase.
