CPAP/Aetna - relieved

Well, that's a load off my mind.

The healthcare company, that provided me the CPAP, has finally worked out all the bugs with billing Aetna for the machine. Tonight I got an explanation of benefits from Aetna for four of the monthly claims.

rental of the machine$687.50
negotiated amount$382.09
paid at90%
patient responsibility$38.21

So my monthly cost to sleep better is now $38.21/month, instead of $687.50/month.
