Durable Medical Equipment (DME)

At Mt. Scott ENT & Sleep Medicine, our commitment to exceptional care extends through our PAP supply services. Discover the exceptional advantages of obtaining PAP supplies and supplemental clinical care through our internal durable medical equipment (DME) department. Unlike the majority of external suppliers, our PAP supply program consists of one empathetic professional who provides highly-personalized attention to detail and care coordination with the practice physicians through regular, effective communication. Our technique is made possible through our singular size, which allows us to maintain an unmatched standard of excellence in the greater metropolitan area.

Depending on your specific insurance plan, patients of Mt. Scott ENT & Sleep Medicine may be able to obtain DME supplies directly through our office. These can be sent directly to your home, and most insurance companies help cover 90 days’ worth of supplies, every three months.

While PAP supplies are durable, they do require regular replacement. The typical resupply schedule is as follows:

  • Masks: One mask every 3 months.
  • Tubing: One tubing every 3 months.
  • Filters: Two filters every month.
  • Cushions/Seals: One cushion or seal every month.
  • Headgear: One headgear every 6 months.
  • Water chamber: One water chamber every 6 months.

If you have further questions related to our DME department, or would like to know if your insurance is contracted with us in order to provide you with DME supplies, please contact us.

Your feedback is welcome, appreciated, and is an integral component of our policymaking. Your well-being and happiness are our top priority!
