Medical Insurance Coverage for Oral Appliance Therapy
One of the most common questions our patients ask us when calling or visiting our office for the first time is, “how much does oral appliance therapy cost?” Great question! It’s important to understand the way forward, financially, before making a commitment. Typically, the answer is “It depends”. While this response does not completely satisfy all curiosity, let’s dig a little deeper as we evaluate the cost of this life-saving therapy.
The initial consult is free. The cost of the appliance and all titration (device adjustment) visits are all included in one easy fee. That total cost is based largely on what is your medical insurance coverage and the balance of your deductible. Oral appliance therapy is charged under your medical insurance, not dental, which is a common misconception among patients.
At Ohio Sleep Treatment, we bill most major medical insurance carriers, including:
- Anthem BCBS
- Medical Mutual of Ohio
- Ohio Healthy
- United HealthCare
- We bill Medicare directly
- We bill Tricare directly
Our experienced staff will verify your insurance benefits and answer any questions you may have. We proudly offer in house, no interest financing. A pay in full discount is also available.
When considering the cost of treatment, consider the following:
- Which type of insurance do you have (Private, Medicare)?
- Has your deductible been met?
- If you have Medicare, do you have a secondary coverage in place?
- If so, insert deductible question here.
Dealing with medical insurance and their requirements is one of our specialties here at Ohio Sleep Treatment. Along with maximizing your individual coverage for the course of therapy. Additionally, the fee we charge includes the initial consult, the device, and each titration (adjustment) visit. We are eager to answer any questions you may have about insurance, oral appliances or otherwise.
