The Norton Sleep Center is a leader in providing positive airway pressure (PAP) therapy — breathing machines — for sleep apnea patients from Louisville and Southern Indiana.
PAP therapy via a mask you wear while you sleep is the most common treatment for sleep apnea. The breathing machine gently blows air through a small mask or less-intrusive nasal pillows that don’t cover your mouth.
Obstructive sleep apnea is a condition that causes the upper airway to collapse while you sleep. This prevents air from reaching your lungs. Providing positive air pressure through one of a variety of masks keeps the airway open.
Your board-certified and fellowship-trained physician will likely prescribe one of the following types of PAP therapy machines:
Virtually every insurance plan provides some coverage for AutoPAP, BiPAP or CPAP. The questions for your insurer include how much is the copay and how long will you have to pay regular copays before the insurer pays to purchase the machine.
At Norton Sleep Center, we have extensive experience with insurance questions surrounding PAP therapy and can help you navigate the complexities.
Norton Sleep Center locations are staffed with fellowship-trained and board-certified physicians and sleep technologists who are experienced in diagnosing and treating a variety of sleep disorders.
