To Restate Funding Universal coverage for CPAP machines by Sask Gov't in 2016 budget.

This petition had 37 supporters


The SAIL Respiratory Equipment Program provides the free loan of CPAP, Bi-level, and auto-CPAP (APAP) flow generators as a universal benefit. The Saskatchewan government recently announced that universal coverage for CPAP machines will end on October 1, 2017. Bi-level and auto-CPAP flow generators will continue to be a universal benefit. The free loan, ongoing maintenance, and replacement of CPAP machines and coverage for related supplies will continue to be available to those who qualify as a Supplementary Health Benefit (adults and children) and Family Health Benefit (children only). Individuals who possess a CPAP machine loaned prior to October 1, 2017 will be able to keep their machine, but will no longer have access to ongoing maintenance and replacement benefits through the SAIL Respiratory Equipment Program.

As someone suffers from this disorder  I  find this horrible this because not everybody is able to pay. Also  not everybody has this program covered under there private health insurance.

So this why this program needs to covered for everyone. The benefits out weigh the cost. Here is information about the danger of this disease. From the mayo clinic
