Sleep apnea Medicare coverage

Medicare coverage for oral sleep apnea appliances is relatively new.  Medicare covers the appliance as a DME ( durable medical equipment).  If you have the appliance made by a dentist, who is not a DME provider it will not be covered by Medicare.  Make sure your dentist can submit for your appliance as a DME before you proceed.   If you have questions about coverage ask us or ask your dentist if they are a DME provider.
