Does Medicaid cover breathing machine for sleep apnea?
Recently I started waking up in the middle of the night choking. I also can't breathe while lying on my back. I also snore very loudly (recorded myself). So I'm pretty sure I have sleep apnea.
So how can I get a breathing machine through Medicaid?

You consult your doctor about your sleep issues, and they will likely send you to a sleep study overnight to monitor your breathing and see if you have apnea. I think that, if a doctor says you require cPap, then you'll get the machine. But i do know there are alternatives to cPap machines out there these days. You can google it.

your doctor would need to refer you to a sleep clinic to be tested

Jim's advice was good. Also, get a 3-corner pillow to keep your head raised. If you don't have one, put two pillows beneath your head. In addition, don't sleep on your back, because gravity puts a strain on your lungs.

Your doctor has to say that you need the machine.
