Health Insurance Coverage
Because OSA is a medical condition, your treatment can be claimed through your medical health insurance provider.
Private Health Cover Claims will only be considered if you have had a sleep study and treatment has been recommended by a doctor. For Snoring and Mild to Moderate Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) SomnoDent can be considered as a first-line treatment. For more Severe OSA CPAP should be considered first, but if this is not tolerated then a SomnoDent is suitable.
Medicare will cover some of the cost of a sleep study – whether it is a Home Sleep Study or an Overnight Sleep Study in a Sleep Clinic.
In Australia, most private health insurers will cover SomnoDent mandibular advancement splints (MAS) under Major Dental as item number #984.
Talk to your Private Health Insurer about what your covered for as all insurers have varying levels reimbursement for this item number and major dental.
