Current relief effort: Hurricane Harvey, Texas
The American Sleep Apnea Association (ASAA) is prepared to help those sleep apnea patients who have lost their devices and masks for their PAP therapy in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
How can the ASAA help you?
If you have been directly affected by the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey and need a replacement PAP device or mask, we will waive your $100 application fee for the device or your $25.00 application fee for a mask.
For medical professionals connected to emergency clinics at medical centers and shelters in Texas: Please contact us directly about your needs; call us at 888-293-3650, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We can bulk send PAP machines and masks directly to you for on-the-spot dissemination.
Do I still need to file a prescription and application?
Yes, for individuals, we still need a completed application along with a copy of your prescription in order to distribute durable medical equipment.
