Frequently Asked Questions

Will my insurance cover treatment?

Insurance coverage varies between plans and providers. The easiest way to find out if your insurance policy will cover the appliance is to look at your list of benefits and requirements. We are contracted with most medical insurance providers including Medicare, Medicaid and Tricare, so we can help you determine if your visit will be covered. In the vast majority of cases, where there is a medical need for treatment, insurance will cover at least part of the treatment.

*Note that most insurance companies consider the treatment of snoring as a “cosmetic” issue, and therefore won’t cover the cost of treatment.

Will treatment require surgery?

Here at the Center for Sleep Apnea and TMJ, we focus on finding a non-surgical solution first. In fact, we specialize in non-surgical treatments. Surgery is only considered as a last resort when all other avenues of treatment have been explored.

 

Will I have to take medication?

Most of the treatments do not require the use of medications. In some cases, medication may be prescribed to help alleviate some of the pain caused by TMJ.

Will I have to be connected to a machine while I sleep?

We specialize in solutions for people that are CPAP intolerant or can't use a CPAP machine.

The best treatment for sleep apnea is the use of a CPAP machine. But in cases where that hasn’t been successful, we prescribe oral appliances that are worn at night.

Oral appliance therapy is a widely used and accepted method for treating sleep disordered breathing.
