Does Insurance Cover Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT)?
Prior to your initial consultation with Dr. Stacey Kreuz, it may be beneficial to speak with your insurance to determine if you have coverage for OAT. Most insurances that cover CPAP therapy will also consider OAT. The American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM) considers OAT as a first line of treatment for OSA (see article).

You will require a prescription from your family physician for a mandiublar advancement advancement device (medical device) as per the AADSM guidelines in order to proceed with OAT.
