Vancouver, WA, December 17, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- MySleepMask.com, the leading CPAP compliance specialist, announced today that it will offer a new coaching program specifically designed to help Medicare patients who want to meet Medicare’s tough new requirements for maintaining Medicare coverage of CPAP therapy.
Medicare has announced new compliance requirements for all apnea patients who initiate CPAP therapy after November 1, 2008. Without meeting and documenting at least 70% compliance, Medicare will cease paying for patients’ CPAP therapy. Because the national average compliance rate is approximately 50%, many patients will fail to meet this hurdle.
Weston Headley, Chief Operating Officer of MySleepMask.com explained, “For Medicare patients who want to have Medicare pay for their CPAP therapy, they need to select a care provider helps patients achieve high compliance rates. Our CPAP coaching program has a track record of 91-95% compliance, which helps Medicare patients benefit clinically but also maximizes the chances of Medicare paying for the CPAP therapy.”
Headley continued, “However, the new Medicare rules also include documentation requirements which only a few CPAP machines can meet. Patients need to be sure that their provider understands all these requirements and selects the right machine. This is another example of why it is so important to find a quality provider.”
