Can I Claim a Health Fund Rebate ?
For all purchases, we provide a GST Tax Invoice which includes our Australian Business Number (ABN)
Generally speaking, our Tax Invoice (and sometimes a doctor's prescription) is usually all a health fund provider needs to approve an eligible customer’s claim for a CPAP machine rebate (typically between $150 and $1500). However, there are 35 Health Funds and they all have different criteria and policy wording, so our recommendation is if you need clarification, check with your health fund.

A: Just require a letter of referral from a Medical Professional to be able to claim for any CPAP machines or accessories supplied by an Australian Registered Business. Check your policy for eligable items that can be claimed for.
B: As long as the provider has an Australian Business Number (ABN) and supplies a tax invoice for the service, the fund generally recognises the service. (Note: CPAP Sales meets this requirement)
C: Quote Supplier number and add street address to invoices. (Note: Please request during checkout if you intend to claim from this health fund)
D: The customer must have trialled the machine for 28 days prior to purchase and complied with using it for at least 4 hours per night over that time. This information is down loaded from the machine. The vendor of the machine needs to confirm this compliance. Benefits are only paid for the complete CPAP machine. No benefits are paid for accessories associated with the device.
E: Check with health fund for details on how to make a successful claim.
F: Please quote provider number on Invoice.
G. Bupa does not recognise/register individual providers for the provision of CPAP/BPAP devices (no Provider/Supplier number is required) A referral letter from a sleep specialist will be required. Benefits will be applicable to those devices purchased by Bupa members at our premises. Important Note: Bupa’s current policy in relation to paying benefits for health aids and appliances such as CPAP and BPAP machines (and for all Extras services) is that they are delivered/purchased face-to-face. Benefits are not payable for items purchased online.
PS. Today a BUPA member advised their online purchase would be recognised. Due to this inconsistency, we recommend you contact BUPA to check before purchasing.
Are you an approved CPAP Equipment Supplier?
Yes. We have been accredited by the Sleep Health Foundation.
