Prescription Policy

PRESCRIPTION POLICY

 

 

A prescription is needed for the purchase of all masks, machines and/or humidifiers. NO PRESCRIPTION is required for purchase of any mask parts, machine parts or accessories.

Your prescription can be one that you currently have and does not need to be a new one.  Most prescriptions are for “Lifetime” or “99 Months” and can be used as long as you are continuing therapy.  If your prescription is for a stated period of time or number of refills, we can help determine if it is still valid for your order. You can request your prescription from your doctor or  if you need us to help in obtaining your prescription from your doctor, we can request one for you. We will need the physician’s name, office number and fax number, date of birth.

We can accept a valid prescription from any other country and written in any language.

 

Your prescription can be delivered to us in the following ways:

Email your prescription to:  Rx@cpapsetc.com

Fax to our toll free number (888) 518-6276

 

WE MUST RECEIVE A COPY OF YOUR PRESCRIPTION BEFORE WE SHIP YOUR ORDER.  PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOU ARE HAVE DIFFICULTY OBTAINING YOUR PRESCRIPTION. 

 

All prescriptions must be issued by a licensed physician and can be written by any of the following care providers:

Medical Doctor

Doctor of Osteopathy

Psychiatrist

Physician’s Assistant

Nurse Practitioner

Dentist

Naturopathic Physician

Your prescription will need to contain the patient’s name, physician’s name, physician contact information and the physician’s signature.

The prescription for a machine also needs to state the pressure(s) that your machine needs to be set at.  A CPAP machine needs one pressure setting. An AUTO CPAP will need two pressures: ( a range from a low setting to a high setting – i.e. “ 4-20 cm H20 ).  If you are purchasing a Bi-Level (BIPAP) machine, the prescription needs to have a pressure for inhalation(IPAP) and one for exhalation(EPAP).  An AUTO BIPAP does not require the pressure setting for the IPAP or EPAP.  A Bipap ST requires the IPAP and EPAP settings and a backup rate or “BPM”setting.
