Thread Summary
Excellent summary that I pasting here, Thank you Norric!

I am not surprised you are confused.

There's two paths to you can follow.

The first path is to go the ADP route and you will get assistance from the Ontario government.

The second path is your family physician or a nurse practitioner can write a script, but you will not receive the ADP assistance.

To get the ADP assistance, you must have a prescription from a doctor that specializes in sleep apnea. Your family doctor can not write a script that will be accepted by the ADP program unless he specializes in sleep apnea.

Your family doctor will refer you to a MD with a sleep apnea sub specialty designation.

That that MD will arrange a sleep study at a clinic. The technicians at the sleep clinic, will do testing at various pressures and record how many times you stop breathing and build a diagnosis while you are asleep and provide the results to the specialist MD.
From there, the sleep apnea MD will determine whether or not you require a CPAP machine and if so, what pressures the machine should be set at.

The apnea doctor will write a prescription for you with the required settings.

With that, you can visit any company that sells CPAP and accessories, be it online or storefront.

The company that will be providing the CPAP machine to you will do all the paperwork required by the ADP program and only charge you the price of the machine minus the ADP assistance.

Most, if not all companies that sell the CPAP equipment will also do the paperwork to your insurance. So theoretically you can walk out the door without paying a penny.

If they do not send the remaining balance after the ATP is subtracted from your machine to your insurance provider, it's no big deal for you to send the paperwork to your insurance company as you would with a dental or drug claim.

Currently you should be paying no
more than:

$554 for the Resmed Airsense 10 Autoset CPAP machine that will include a standard hose.

$100 for the ResMed ClimateLineAir Heated Tube, which better delivers the correct humidity without rain fog in the tube.

$230 for the ResMed AirFit P10 Nasal Pillow Mask,

There is a recommended schedule for replacing the water tank, hose, mask, and filters.

( You can pay much less on Amazon for the actual ResMed tubes, tank, and mask, but as always check first with your insurance provider)

You do not have to buy the heated tube if you do not want to because you will receive a standard non-heated tube that is provided with the machine by ResMed.

As for filters, they are outrageously priced and many insurance companies will not cover them. If they do not, Amazon is your friend. They have many suppliers that will sell an equivalent filter for a 10% of the cost of the ResMed filters.

To access the Ontario government ADP program, the maximum allowed price any company is allowed to charge for any machine is $554.

See Nick at CPAP reviews.



I love my two 10's....including the For Her as backup. Mine as 4+ yo have ceullar modems.

Latest model including $999 do not have cellular modems. Gone way of the dodo.

Once been on a waiting list for a CPAP for over a year. Maybe it should just buy this and then try and get OHIP/Insurance coverage afterwards?

When I got mine a few years ago, they executed everything at Point of Purchase except for the non-OHIP portion which I had to submit to Sunlife. Easy peasy. Not sure with this store. I went to Medigas which is probably some kind of insurance-doctor-kickback racket lol.

Waiting list because they had to make COVID respirators and had a shortage of legit CPAPs?

Not quite. There was a worldwide recall of millions of devices of their main competitor. That was on top of the chip supply issues.

The sound abatement foam they used in many devices made prior to mid-2021...had issues. It's why their stock tanked.

I was diagnosed with OSA In August, they said 4-6 months wait. Called back in September for an update, got my machine the next week, they said the shortage was pretty much over and they were getting regular deliveries.

Try a different clinic.

Had apnea for 10 years, now my airsense 10 is dying and i cannot get a new one covered without a new assessment. Good thing I have been on a doctors waitlist for 6 years. By the time I get a referral and new assessment we may have flying cars

The sleep clinic I went to charged me 2000$ for this. My insurance plan covered it. Why do they charge so much. If I get this from here how would I go about setting the right pressure and what not.

lol it's an insurance abuse racket. They figure patients don't care what the insurance pays.

Usually they ask for some settings. Your sleep clinic would have the settings. I have this machine and it is set by the sleep clinic staff. As this has the wifi signal they can do it remotely. There are a few things I can set like amount of humidity, ramp time, pressure relief. I do t touch those as the settings have been tweaked enough that it's comfortable for me.

As people have already mentioned. Pricing is all over the map. They will charge what your insurance is willing to pay.

I just got one ....these are practically free no? it's covered mostly through OHIP .....the remaining ($100-200) can be covered via your insurance if you have the coverage ......

edit: just realized this could be for people who reside outside Ontario, sorry ....not sure how it is in other provinces but this machine is virtually free in Ontario (I just got one!)

First time CPAP user, just got my prescription for a CPAP machine and have been shopping around. Was wondering how the ADP coverage thingy works if it's an online purchase with sleepeh? Do I pay up front and fill out some form to be reimbursed?
Also, would it be better to buy it from a store front that allows you to try different masks until you find the most comfortable one that fits? I got quoted recently, it was roughly $600-700 after ADP coverage (I think) depending on the mask, but they'd let me try out different masks.

EDIT:
Hmm, I think I'll go back to the person that quoted me that price and ask for a breakdown on paper on how and what they were charging me.

Another place quoted me like $859.50 after ADP coverage, so I thought $600-700 sounded like a deal.
I was being charged $200 for some Breathe Better Program (5 years)
$180 for heavy duty CPAP tubing/w climate change and $16 some surcharge
