Annual CPAP review overdue....Medicare consequences????

Follow
Share

I am undergoing chemotherapy and just realized that the annual review of my use of my CPAP machine is overdue by 4 days. I do have an appointment today though but with Medicare being what it can be, does anyone know if there will be negative consequences? If so, is there anything I can do to help myself?

Mention this when you talk to the doctor. I don't know if Medicare has a grace period but the extenuating circumstances of chemotherapy should give the CPAP doctor enough justification for your late exam.

Good luck!
