NEW PAP TREATMENT INFORMATIONAL RESOURCES AVAILABLE!
The AAHS has developed new resources to provide practical information to patients using positive airway pressure (PAP) treatment information. This includes two new informational fact sheets that focus on privacy and insurance.
Provides an explanation of how a patients PAP information and data may be shared with insurers, physicians and others, as well as general information regarding patients rights under HIPAA
Includes information on insurance coverage for PAP treatment, different payment options available to patients, and other aspects of insurance coverage that are important for patients to know
These fact sheets may be helpful to patients looking for additional information on how their information is shared and how to protect their privacy, as well as factors to keep in mind when paying for PAP treatment through insurance. Providers may find it helpful to share this information with their patients to ensure newly diagnosed patients, or those changing treatment, understand these issues when starting PAP treatment.
