Hello all. Have had my CPAP about six weeks. First four with a poorly fitted mask that hurt to wear. Never made it past 30 minutes with that one. Now I have a more comfortable mask and am wearing it to try to fall asleep, but I can’t sleep with it on. I’m up to about two hours a night with it on (before I give up, take it off, and fall asleep).

The therapist who set me up with the new mask explained insurance compliance to me for the first time, that insurance expects me to use it 4 hrs/night, 21 nights/month. Is this common for insurance companies to monitor? Anyone have any experience fighting this if they take longer to get used to the mask?

I’m scared insurance will stop paying for the machine and supplies soon.
