It is very important to obtain the proper sleep apnea follow-up care to make sure that CPAP therapy is working well for you.
Your first follow-up appointment will be with a LUNA Sleep Center physician. Please remember to bring your smartcard to this appointment, so that adjustments can be made, if needed.
Your first follow-up office appointment should occur about one month after your initial CPAP set-up. If you do not have this appointment scheduled, please call the office at 205-917-LUNA.
If you have not received a CPAP unit, please call our clinical office at 205-917-LUNA.
Some insurance plans, including Medicare, now require that patients starting on PAP therapy (CPAP, Bilevel and ASV) have a follow-up appointment with their doctor within 30 to 90 days of starting PAP therapy. These rules also state that you must show (usually through smartcard/modem data) that you have used your PAP unit 70 percent of nights, for at least four hours per night, during a consecutive 30-day period. Without proper documentation, some insurers may deny further PAP coverage, and you may be responsible for equipment costs.
