Medicare – Mesa, AZ
Making It Easy to Afford Sleep Apnea Therapy
Understandably, many of our patients are concerned about the cost of sleep apnea therapy. While traditional medical insurance usually covers the treatment, not everyone has that type of coverage. Countless individuals rely on Medicare to help them fill their medical needs. We recognize that, which is why we are happy to accept Medicare and assist our patients in figuring out exactly how their plan can reduce the cost of their sleep apnea treatment.
What Does Medicare Cover?
Depending on the specifics of the parts of Medicare that you are participating in, your plan might cover:
- The equipment you need. Both CPAP machines and oral sleep appliances are considered to be “durable medical equipment” under Medicare guidelines. Therefore, a large percentage of their cost is covered.
- Your sleep study. Not sure if you have sleep apnea or if your sleep problems are due to a different disorder? A sleep study can help you find the answers you need. Medicare often covers this basic diagnostic test, whether your doctor prescribes an in-lab or at-home sleep test.
- Doctor visits. Please give us your Medicare information before you come in for your appointment. We’ll make sure to apply your coverage so you pay as little out of pocket as possible.
How Much Does Medicare Cover?
Exactly how much of your treatment Medicare will cover depends on the specific details of your coverage. If you aren’t sure how your plan applies, our friendly team will be happy to help you figure it out. In some cases, patients pay little to nothing out of pocket. In other cases, a patient might owe around 20 percent of the cost of their oral appliance therapy.
If you have any concerns about the amount of your coinsurance, let us know. We may be able to help you arrange for low-interest financing through CareCredit.
