Sticking to Your Treatment Plan

Also known as medical adherence or compliance, sticking to your sleep treatment plan is critical for producing the best outcomes for our patients.

Also, most insurance companies require that you use your device a minimum number of hours/days in order to continue to pay for the equipment and supplies.

Apria sleep support will help you meet your therapy goals.

Dedicated sleep coaches

We are here for you. Sleep coaches provide one-on-one individual support, encouragement, and education as you adapt to your PAP machine. 

Usage monitoring

Your PAP device has state of the art technology to help sleep coaches carefully monitor your usage in the first 90-days. We proactively reach out with reminders to help get you back on track when your usage falls short of goal.  

Tools for self-service

Explore the Resource Center for videos and easy-to-follow guides. Or access the mobile application available with most PAP devices. Refer to your Apria User Guide that arrived with your device. 

Knowledgeable customer service

Sleep supplies specialists understand the importance of replacing PAP supplies (mask, filters, tubing, etc.) on the recommended replacement schedule*. We will verify and bill your insurance and ensure you receive your supplies in 7-10 days. 


* Please note that the frequency of PAP supplies and your insurance’s coverage of supplies will be governed by your insurance plan, and may differ from the schedule provided.
