Medicare No Longer Requires Proof of Medical Necessity to Cover CPAP/RAD Accessories

Are you a Medicare beneficiary in need of replacement CPAP or Respiratory Assistance Device (RAD) supplies? We have good news! The Center for Medicare Service recently announced that replacement accessories for a beneficiary owned CPAP or RAD device will now be covered through Medicare. The best part is that you do not need to provide any documentation to get your supplies: as long as Medicare purchased your device and you have used the machine for a year and one month continuously, your accessories will be covered!

Get the Facts on the Medicare Replacement Policy:

There are a few points to remember if you are replacing a CPAP or RAD accessory through Medicare:

  • Documentation is not needed for replacement accessories
  • If certain accessories are provided for the first time (like heated humidifiers or tubing) then CMS will ensure that the supplies are necessary
  • The policy doesn’t apply to devices that have been used for less than 13 months
  • The policy doesn’t apply to devices that were not purchased by Medicare

All  beneficiaries with a continuous CPAP/RAD use record of 13 months will now be able to get replacement accessories through Medicare, which is great news for those of you who need a new part for your machine!
