...not sure that was actually listening. the way i read it is the were telling you to pipe down and that the grownups had it under control. along with a lot of eye rolling on their part.
Maybe so, but the legal issue I raised is genuine. They cannot create a medical record and sell it to others and not give the patient access, by law.

The decision to make therapy data a BONUS revenue stream is potentially a disaster.
Insurance--especially Medicare--will not pay for it.
The only patients who can get data will be those who can afford concierge medicine.
Sounds a lot like respironics has jumped directly on the "death panel".
Is this, by any definition LEGAL???

Does anyone know if there would be any chance of the insurance company covering a ResMed device if I claim that it is a violation of my HIPAA rights. What is the best way to get a ResMed machine covered?

How long has it been since your insurance company paid for your cpap machine?
You might have some recourse if it has been over 5 years. No guarantee though. It all depends on the insurance company.

I bought my first Autoset out of pocket, when my S9 Elite was only 9 months old.
I was able to re-titrate my pressures, eliminating aerophagia.
Best investment I ever made!
