Insurance Covering our Sleep Apnea Treatments
The big question with sleep apnea appliances and TMJ therapy is "are they covered by insurance"? The answer is YES! All services are billed to MEDICAL INSURANCE not dental as we are treating a medical condition.
In order for the insurance to consider oral appliance therapy as medically necessary, there must be a diagnosis of sleep apnea as recorded by overnight sleep study performed either at a sleep laboratory or by our FREE home study. Our office will help obtain all required documentation and authorizations required by the insurance to establish coverage. This is considered durable medical equipment (DME) and coverage is usually subject to plan co-pay, co-insurance and deductible.
Dr. Gary Core is contracted with the following medical insurances:
- TriCare (TriWest)
- United Healthcare
- Blue Cross Blue Shield
For all other insurances not listed we are usually able to obtain a network exception to be considered as in-network.
