How to get a CPAP prescription renewal online

Step 1

Check your renewal eligibility

To qualify for prescription renewal from a physician, you must either have a prior prescription, or have completed a recent sleep study. If you’re looking to renew your CPAP prescription, you can obtain more information from Ectosense and their partner SleepMedRx, a network of sleep physicians, by clicking the link at the bottom of the page.

Step 2

Complete a short online questionnaire

The link will direct you to the Ectosense website, where you will be asked to answer a few questions about your previous prescription and medical history to help determine your CPAP online prescription eligibility. This takes just a few minutes, and is an important part of renewing your prescription.

Step 3

Schedule your online consultation

Should you decide to proceed through Ectosense, you can book a telehealth consultation with a board-certified sleep physician through SleepMedRx. Everything is done virtually – on your smartphone, tablet or desktop – so you can pick a time that suits your schedule best.

Step 4

Receive your CPAP prescription

Once you receive your CPAP prescription, you can utilize the prescription to purchase products on the ResMed Shop. Please note that SleepMedRx is not affiliated with ResMed and ResMed makes no guarantees that you will receive a prescription. Your SleepMedRx physician will determine whether it is medically necessary for you to receive a renewal prescription.

Frequently asked questions about online CPAP prescription renewal

Do I need a prescription for CPAP equipment?

Yes, a prescription is required to purchase CPAP equipment, including the AirMini™ AutoSet™ and AirMini-compatible CPAP mask options. They can be purchased through ResMed Shop with a valid prescription issued by a licensed health professional with prescriptive authority based on a prior analysis of your sleep. If you have not performed a sleep test previously, consider talking to your doctor to determine whether an at-home sleep test is right for you.

Can I get a CPAP prescription without a sleep study?

CPAP devices are a class II medical device regulated by the FDA and require a prescription. In order to obtain a CPAP prescription, you must be diagnosed by a medical professional — which can be done through a sleep study — before you can begin CPAP therapy.

How often do I need to renew my CPAP prescription?

If your current CPAP prescription mentions a "lifetime need" or says "99 months," it's valid for as long as you need therapy. If your prescription shows an expiration date, it is valid until the date shown. You’ll need to renew your CPAP prescription on or before that expiration date.
