North Carolina supplies help!

Post by j3g » Fri Jul 05, 2024 6:46 am

I had been purchasing supplies from cpap.com, but that has been disrupted for two years now due to the new polices in effect in North Carolina (and other states). For a while I was using a work-around, having the supplies mailed out of state, but that's become impossible too. Does anyone have any tips? I can't even find a local store, much less an online subscription! Thanks for any advice--I'm getting desperate.

What policies are you referring to?

I found this. That's crappy for North Carolina CPAPers. :evil:
Any place, whether in North Carolina or outside of North Carolina, that delivers devices or medical equipment to a patient in North Carolina must hold a DME Permit prior to doing so. GS § 90-85.22(a)&(b); 21 NCAC 46.1608.

Can you avoid direct mail by using a remailing service, like Canadians do?
