Dorma Sleep Clinic’s CPAP guide
One of the common questions we receive at Dorma Sleep Clinic is what is the cost of sleep apnea treatment? At Dorma Sleep Clinic, we are committed to being transparent about our services, especially when it comes to costs.
We are dedicated to providing all relevant information from the start of your treatment so that you do not have to pay any unexpected fees along the way.
If your sleep test results are positive for sleep apnea, there is a good chance that your sleep specialist will recommend CPAP therapy as a treatment option. This means that you will need to find the right CPAP (Continuous Positive Air Pressure) machine for you.
Note that the out of pocket expense may vary depending on your insurance or benefits plan. We encourage you to check with your insurance benefits provider for details before starting any treatment.
To maintain your CPAP, we strongly recommend this regular care routine.
Models of sleep apnea devices
There are three types of devices used to treat sleep apnea. Your sleep specialist will help you identify the device that best suits your needs.
CPAP: The constant continuous positive airway pressure device is also the most popular CPAP machine. With CPAP, the pressure level delivered to the airway is the same during inhalation and exhalation.
Auto CPAP: these machines will adjust the CPAP pressure during the night to the lowest levels needed to eliminate apneas and hypopneas. Some people with OSA may find Auto CPAP devices more comfortable to use, but they may be more expensive.
BiPAP (BiLevel): With BiPAP, the pressure is higher during inhalation and lower during exhalation. The pressure needed to control apneas and hypopneas is sometimes lower than with CPAP. Some people have difficulty tolerating the high pressure of CPAP. BIPAP can be a good option for people who have difficulty managing CPAP pressure.
CPAP guide: device pricing
There are numerous CPAP machines on the market today. The cost of a CPAP machine can vary from $250 to $1,000 or more, with prices increasing for more advanced devices. The median cost for a CPAP machine is about $1200, but there is no standard price.
The price range for a CPAP machine is between $1200 and $2000, depending on your individual needs. The cost of each device depends on the brand, its features and accessories.
BiPAP (Bilevel Positive Airway Pressure) devices are more complex and also more expensive. Most BiPAP devices cost between $1000 and $3000.
CPAP guide: accessories
Besides the CPAP machine, there are additional costs related to accessories such as mask, humidifier, tubing, cleaning and maintenance. Usually, the CPAP and mask are sold separately. At Dorma Sleep Clinic, the mask can range from $200 to $315. Please note that with every purchase of a CPAP machine from our sleep clinic, you will receive a power supply, tubing and carrying bag.

That is why Dorma Sleep Clinic advises its patients to check with their benefits provider to understand what will be a covered or out of pocket expense. We will provide you with any information you need to ensure that you get the best possible coverage.
