I did some research and was pretty set on the Resmed S9 Autoset to find out my insurance only covers Intellipap. Aetna will consider making an exception with a Predetermination Benefits Request from my doctor. The request needs to state why S9 Autoset would be a better solution - the more detailed and thorough the more likely it will be accepted.
My inquiry/question is three-fold:
1. Are the two machines comparable - Is there a reason why I should get the S9 over the Intellipap?
2. What are some specific reasons why S9 would be superior?
3. If S9 is the final decision and my insurance will not cover this - is anyone familiar with purchasing from cpap.com and what the warranty is?
Thanks for all your help.
I'd like to give my doctor some specific reasons for her PBR to submit to Aetna should I go that route.
