In compliance with current FDA requlations, cpapXchange.com requires a prescription for each CPAP/BiPAP Machine, CPAP/BiPAP Mask, CPAP/BiPAP Humidifier, and Oxygen Concentrator we sell.
Prescriptions may be faxed, emailed, or mailed to us using the information on the right side of this page. If you are unable to obtain a copy of your prescription we can call your doctor and request the prescription on your behalf. If your order requires a prescription, and we do not have one for you in our files, we will email you a prescription request and hold your order until your prescription is received.
DO I HAVE TO SEND A NEW PRESCRIPTION EVERY TIME I ORDER?
Once we have your prescription on file we will keep it for all future orders so there is no need to send a new prescription every time you order. If we have your prescription on file please select the "Prescription On File" option when placing your order online.
DO I NEED A NEW PRESCRIPTION OR WILL MY OLD ONE DO?
In general prescriptions for CPAP/BiPAP and Oxygen therapy are valid for life so your prescription will qualify regardless of how old it is. If you are unsure if your prescription is valid we would be happy to review it to ensure that it meets current FDA guidelines for purchase.
WHAT SHOULD BE ON MY PRESCRIPTION?
Prescriptions are generally provided on your doctor's prescription pad, office letterhead, or printed prescription form. All prescriptions must contain your doctor's signature, your doctor's contact information, the patient's full name, and a description of the therapy prescribed (see examples below).

DOES MY PRESCRIPTION HAVE TO BE FROM A US DOCTOR?
In most cases, if your primary residence is in a foreign country and you have a prescription from your doctor in that country it should be valid for your purchase as long as it meets the requirements outlined above. If you are unsure if your prescription is valid we would be happy to review it to ensure that it meets current FDA guidelines for purchase. We are only authorized to sell and ship Respironics and ResMed masks and machines to end-users residing in the United States with a prescription from a U.S. doctor.
DOES MY PRESCRIPTION HAVE TO BE IN ENGLISH?
No. In most cases we can accept prescriptions written in any language. In certain circumstances we may require a certified translation be provided in English. We will inform you, after reviewing your prescription, if this is the case.
