Any urology supplies other than catheters, do not require a prescription. Any oxygen supplies, cannulas, tubing, bubble humidifiers, spare batteries, and travel accessories do not require a prescription. Any compression garments under 30mmHg do not require a prescription.
Did you know that you can often get a prescription from your primary care physician? If your doctor has a record of your sleep study or knows that you use prescription required medical equipment or supplies, he or she will most likely be happy to write a prescription for your supplies. This method can also generally be completed faster than going through a specialist. We have a prescription form your doctor can use.
Your prescription can be handwritten on a standard prescription pad. It must include the physician’s name, contact information and signature of the care provider; your name; and a statement about the equipment needed, for example “Oxygen at LPM” “CPAP” , “BiPAP”, “CPAP Mask”, “CPAP Humidifier” or “CPAP Supplies”. Ideally, the prescription for a CPAP machine will also include a pressure setting or oxygen will include LPM. If this information is not included on the prescription, it may be provided by the patient.
Q: I have an old prescription. May I still use it?
A: Prescriptions may be written for “Lifetime Need” or “99 Months”. Such a prescription may be used for the prescribed equipment as often as needed to continue therapy. If a prescription notes a number of refills, it will be valid to dispense the listed equipment the number of times shown on the prescription. If a prescription bears an expiration date, the prescription is good through the date shown. If you are not sure about the validity of a prescription, send it to us and we will determine its condition.
Q: Who can write a prescription?
A: The prescription can be written by any of the following care providers:
- Medical Doctor
- Doctor of Osteopathy
- Physicians Assistant
- Nurse Practitioners
- Naturopathic Physician
