Sleep Medicine Group provides complete sleep medicine patient services, oral appliance therapy for sleep disordered breathing, medical insurance credentialing, contracting and billing services for the sleep medicine and dental sleep medicine communities.
Coverage for oral appliance therapy is virtually always through medical, not dental insurance. Historically, reimbursement has been problematic. With accumulating scientific validation of the efficacy and effectiveness of oral appliance therapy for sleep disordered breathing, and with the endorsement of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine defining their appropriate use, barriers for insurance reimbursement are disappearing.
It is very likely that your medical insurance carrier will cover oral appliance therapy for you. SMG can offer a complete insurance assessment at the initial visit. This assessment, prior to accepting any therapy virtually eliminates patient uncertainty over any financial obligations.
