Can I claim for a CPAP machine via Extras cover?


To claim, you need to:


You may be able to claim towards the purchase of Positive Airway Pressure (PAP) machines or oxygen concentrators that are:

  • Used to treat sleep apnoea or a breathing condition
  • Purchased online from a registered Australian business with a physical presence in Australia and claimed with an itemised tax invoice that shows the name of the patient (i.e. the person who’ll be using the machine).

See info on claiming for CPAP machine accessories

You can’t claim towards:

  • Apnoea monitors (that track breathing but don’t treat a health condition)
  • Devices from overseas providers
  • Standalone non-mechanical devices (e.g. nasal inserts)
  • Repair and service fees
  • Device hire fees.


The CPAP machines benefit has a limit that refreshes every three years. You can check your remaining limits via our member app or Online Member Services.
