CPAP Assistance Program – do you need help obtaining a CPAP?

Sleep Apnea Association

Patient with CPAP

An important announcement

The ASAA recently received a generous donation of 10,000 machines and masks and they are waiting to be delivered to patients in need. Unfortunately, too many patients have no insurance, high deductibles or are experiencing financial hardship; help us find these patients!

If you are a patient in need or know someone who is, you can apply now by submitting an application.

The CAP (CPAP Assistance Program) provides qualified patients an equipment package of a new or gently used CPAP, AutoCPAP or BiLevel as prescribed by their physician, new factory sealed mask, tubing, machine filter and carrying case.

A $100 application fee covers shipping and application processing costs. The fee is 100% refundable should the applicant not qualify.

The American Sleep Apnea Association, founded in 1990, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that promotes awareness of sleep apnea, works for continuing improvements in treatments for this serious disease, and advocates for the interests of sleep apnea.

Donations to support the mission of the ASAA are also always appreciated.
