OK, Pugsy, PR, here's the question (if you can answer an abstract question like this): If this were available today, how much more per box of adhesive adapters would you be willing to pay for it? I'm assuming (maybe incorrectly) that you are paying out of pocket....
Tough question. Hadn't really thought about it.
I have decided to light a fire under my DME's ass and see if I can get them to get them for me and let me use my insurance.
While that has nothing to do with your question it is my deciding that my insurance needs to pay. The lied to me when the Bleep first came out and said insurance wouldn't pay and I knew it was a lie....so I haven't been back to them for anything.
But if I were to have to pay out of pocket for the adhesive part of the mask....assuming I bought it bulk to get a lower price to start with...a third more without hesitation. Since my right hand surgery last year things are not quite yet back to normal and the current port attachment is a bit of a challenge. While I can get it done...it's extra work for me and everyone knows how I feel about extra work.
I would gladly pay more for less work.
I have no idea what the pricing will be to compare it to the original Bleep but my own personal thoughts....I would think that the frame/tube part might cost a little more but since they last forever I wouldn't worry about that part so much.
I am with PR...I don't think that there is going to be much of an increase in price of the adhesive part...if any. Another WAG.
But that's just me musing about things. That is something I haven't talked to Stuart about but I will next time I talk to him.
