Sleep apnea patients who are experiencing financial hardship may be eligible to receive an equipment package through the CPAP Assistance Program, which is administered by the American Sleep Apnea Association. The program provides qualified patients a new or gently used PAP machine as prescribed by their physician, a new factory-sealed mask, tubing, machine filter and carrying case. A licensed physician must complete the application on behalf of the patient, and recipients pay a $100 fee to cover processing and shipping. Get complete details at
