MHLA has become aware of rumors and unconfirmed information regarding prescriptions for CPAP machines from Calox. To clarify, there has been no change to the initial contract between Calox and Health Services.
Steve Yaeger, COO of Calox, confirms that there has been no change in the agreement between Calox and Health Services facilities. MHLA patients who get referred to Health Services for a sleep study do not require a prescription form a Health Services facility provider to order a CPAP. However, the Health services facility that performs the sleep study is considered financially responsible for funding of durable medical equipment and supplies. Calox has not changed its procedure on accepting CPAP prescriptions. Likewise, there is no change to the current Health Services or MHLA contracts on this matter.
