Continuing to Maintain Your Supplies
These are the steps in the order they should be completed:
Face-to-Face Visit with your Provider or Sleep Specialist.
This visit has to be Face-to-Face. It cannot be done over the phone. The visit has to have everything listed in the Face-to-Face Checklist for Continuation of Supplies in the Provider’s report at the time of the visit. CMS will not accept addendums.
Download must be completed from your current machine
The download of the machine must show compliance of use. CMS states that compliance is ≥ 4 hours per night 70% of the time within a current 30-day period.
Should you not show compliance, you have to have another study and begin the process over again. See Initial Start to Investigate a Sleep Disorder.
