Submitting claims to your health insurance for out-of-pocket CPAP and Oxygen expenses

The information below is only a guide of general instructions for filing an insurance claim on your own behalf for CPAP, BiPAP or oxygen supplies. Please verify with your insurance company prior to filing a claim. Contact the Member Services department of your insurance company to confirm that they allow subscribers to submit claims for medical expenses purchased out-of-pocket and find out their procedure for submitting claims. Most likely, they will have a Medical Claim Form for you to complete.

Many insurance providers require a HCPC (pronounced, “Hicks Picks”) code. This is an acronym for Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System and refers to the system of coding for services and equipment used by physicians, medical equipment suppliers, and insurance company’s code to be included with medical devices, supplies or equipment claims.

For your convenience we have provided a list of HCPCS codes below. Not all CPAP equipment is eligible for insurance reimbursement. Items such as CPAP bed pillows, batteries, and DC adapters are not covered and considered luxury items.


Attention Medicare Patients: Medicare does not allow patients to submit claims on their own behalf. These claims must be billed from a medical equipment company with a Medicare provider number.
