The cost of CPAP varies widely with insurances carriers and which option you use to procure the CPAP, either purchase or rental from a Durable Medical Equipment (DME) company. The cheapest way is to rent the equipment for an initial charge for set up and then a monthly copay usually less than $120. This would include periodic replacement of masks and tubing.
