About Zzoma: DME Providers

Zzoma – New effective sleep apnea

The Zzoma Positional Device is a Class II FDA-Cleared Prescription Only Medical Device intended for the treatment of mild to moderate positional obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Designed by board certified sleep physicians, Zzoma is a positioner worn around the upper torso to ensure patients remain comfortably positioned on their side while sleeping.

Provide a comfortable CPAP alternative

If you have customers who are struggling to properly adjust to CPAP treatment due to factors like claustrophobia, mask discomfort, nasal congestion and eye irritation, recommend they ask their doctor about Zzoma. In a multi-center clinical study1 of patients with positional OSA, Zzoma was found to be just as effective as CPAP treatment.

Navigating the Insurance Reimbursement Process

Zzoma is an out-of-pocket expense that you may be refunded for by your private healthcare insurer. Refund approval and percentage depends on your policy.

If you'd like to receive pre-approval we suggest for you to start by calling the 800 # on the back of your insurance card. Ask them their policy on the equipment code E1399 as a medical necessity. Explain to the customer care representative that you have been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea and have been prescribed Zzoma as a medical device. Let them know that you do have a medical necessity letter (click for a sample).

Most insurance companies will have you purchase items and then download a claim form from their website. We suggest submitting a copy of your prescription, medical necessity letter and receipt with your form. We are not given permission to access your health coverage so please be sure to write your own address on the forms for correspondence.
