Do You Need Rx for Monthly CPAP Club?


One of the most common questions we get here at Monthly CPAP Club is, do I need a prescription? A valid prescription is required to purchase a CPAP machine, CPAP mask, and CPAP humidifier. The FDA classifies these products as Class II medical devices, which require a valid prescription for legal purchase. This is mainly because sleep apnea is difficult to evaluate and treat accurately due to many underlying factors that give each person unique symptoms, complications, and needs for their CPAP equipment. Therefore, a qualified medical professional is vital in matching the individual to the appropriate CPAP setup, so that maximum benefit and restful sleep can be achieved!

Can I Buy a CPAP Machine and Supplies Without a Prescription?

Because they are defined as Class II medical devices by the FDA, CPAP machines cannot be purchased without a valid prescription. You will need to undergo a sleep study either in a lab or at home to receive a diagnosis and a prescription. However, CPAP supplies such as replacement mask parts, tubing/hoses, external power supplies, or filters may be purchased without a prescription.

How Can I Get a Prescription?

As stated above, obtaining a prescription for a CPAP device is required for legal purchase and is important in determining your specific needs. Because there are three different types of sleep apnea, having a medical professional evaluate and diagnose your sleep apnea will ensure you are getting the right kind of treatment for your condition.

To get a prescription, you can follow these steps:

  1. Make an appointment with one of the following medical professionals, and express interest in a sleep study:
    • Medical Doctor (MD)
    • Doctor of Osteopathy (DO)
    • Psychiatrist (MD Only)
    • Physicians Assistant (PA)
    • Nurse Practitioner (NP)
    • Dentist
    • Naturopathic Physicians
  2. Participate in a sleep study in a lab or your home.
  3. Wait for the results to be sent to the professional.
  4. Receive a prescription catered to your results.

Your prescription will provide the following information:

  1. Your correct therapy pressure
  2. The type of device you need (CPAP, APAP, BiPAP)
  3. Your sleep apnea diagnosis, as there are three different types of sleep apnea
  4. Your recommended CPAP mask type (full-face, nasal, nasal pillow)
  5. Your replacement part schedule

This allows for the proper equipment to be purchased to get exactly the kind of support you need when you lay down to sleep each night.
