3. Will my CPAP be allowed through airport security? (back to top)
CPAPs, BiPAPs, and APAPs are allowed through TSA security checkpoints once they have been screened. The passenger should inform an officer of the CPAP, BiPAP or APAP and any special requirements before the screening process begins.
All CPAPs, BiPAPs, and APAPs must be screened by X-ray. If the X-ray cannot see through all parts of the CPAP, BiPAP, or APAP, additional screening by X-ray or other methods may be required.
Passengers are required to remove CPAPs, BiPAPs, and APAPs from its carrying case, though facemasks and tubing can remain in the case. A passenger can provide a clear plastic bag in which to place the CPAP, BiPAP or APAP during X-ray screening; however, an officer may need to remove the CPAP, BiPAP or APAP from the bag to test it for traces of explosives.
4. Is the study or my CPAP unit covered by my insurance? (back to top)
Our staff check insurance benefits as well as pre-authorization prior to arranging patient’s appointment. Once you’re scheduled, that is an indication that your insurance approved your study. The CPAP unit is usually covered by insurance so long as the diagnostic study indicate positve for sleep apnea. Alway check with your insurance your benefits, coverage, and your co-pay amount (if any).
