The FDA and State Boards of Pharmacy require that we obtain prescriptions for CPAP/APAP/BiLevel machines, humidifiers and masks. Some supplies, such as replacement cushions, tubing, and filters do not require a prescription. The prescription does not expire, and can be used multiple times. Once we have a valid prescription on file for you, you will not have to submit it again unless a product you order is not covered by the original prescription. Unfortunately, we are only able to accept a prescription from a U.S. Physician.
We can accept prescriptions via e-mail, fax, or uploading directly to the website. If you are in need of assistance in getting your prescription we are more than happy to help, just call (844)361-0718.
- Prescriptions must be issued and signed by a licensed U.S. Physician.
- Prescriptions for CPAP Masks and other CPAP Supplies do not need to say anything more than “CPAP Supplies”, although they can be more specific if desired.
- As for CPAP/APAP/BiLevel/BiPAP machines, the prescription must be a bit more specific.
- A CPAP prescription will need to have the pressure setting measured in centimeters of water, which will be a number from 4 to 20 followed by “cm/H2O”. A valid CPAP prescription should read something like, “CPAP set at 8cm/H2O.”
- A BiLevel/BiPAP prescription will be similar to the CPAP, but will need two different pressures, one for an IPAP and another for EPAP (inspiratory and expiratory). A valid BiLevel/BiPAP prescription should read something like, “BiPAP set at EPAP 8cm/H2O, IPAP 12cm/H2O.”
- An APAP (Auto) machine does not require a specified pressure, but the prescription must state, “Auto CPAP” or “APAP”. If no pressure is specified, the APAP will be shipped with a range from 4cm/H2O to 20cm/H2O. If a more specific range is desired, please make sure it is noted on the prescription.
- A prescription for a humidifier just needs to say something along the lines of, “CPAP Humidifier” or “CPAP Heated Humidifier.”
- A prescription that covers all of these would read something like, “CPAP set at 8cm/H2O with Heated Humidifier and supplies.”

Unable to get a prescription?
If you’re already established on therapy, but for any reason are unable to secure a prescription, we are still able to help. Mask parts such as replacement cushions and headgears, tubings, filters or humidifier chambers do not require a prescription to purchase. This allows you to refresh your current set up, although you wouldn’t be able to purchase masks complete with the headgear, machines or humidifiers.
