Buy BiPAP Accessories with Flex Spend
Flexible spending accounts allow you to use pretax dollars to pay for medical expenses (or dental expenses) that are not covered by insurance. Depending on what types of insurance you have, you may have all of your BiPAP accessories and supplies expenses covered, as long as it follows the insurance's time cycle. However, you may want or need supplies more often than your insurance covers, or your insurance doesn't cover all or any of the expenses. It is in this situation where a flex plan can save you money. A flex plan allows you to set aside a certain dollar amount, pre-tax, to use for these medical expenses. The key is to spend all of your flex money in the plan's allotted time, as the flex plan does not carry over year-to-year. BiPAP filters
and BiPAP Masks
are excellent purchases to spend your flex money on. Stock up on extra bipap masks and take advantage of these pre-tax expenditures.
