Here at MakeSleepEasy.com, we understand that you pay a lot for your medical insurance. That's why, if it proves to be beneficial for you to go through your insurance, we will do everything we can to make it happen. However, more times than not, this is not the case.
Did you know...
Most insurances do not cover telemedicine visits unless you are in a doctor's office at the time the visit happens. In order to have insurance pay for a home sleep test, you must have an assessment completed by a certified medical provider BEFORE the test is done. IF you get a CPAP machine and do not see a provider between 30 and 90 days after getting the machine or fail to comply with minimum use rules (4 hours a night), your insurance will NOT pay for the CPAP. Instead, you will get stuck with the bill.
When should you NOT use insurance?
If you have a high deductible healthcare plan (more than $1000), it will cost you more out-of-pocket if you try to use insurance to be diagnosed and treated for sleep apnea. You will have to pay for a pre-test office visit, the home sleep test, the CPAP, and a follow up office visit. You will have to check the cost of each with your insurance company. Instead, with MakeSleepEasy.com, a sleep medicine consult, home sleep test, CPAP and CPAP coaching will cost approximately $937. In addition, with the use of MakeSleepEasy.com, you will not have to miss work or wait in a waiting room.
