Because OSA is a medical condition, the dental component of your treatment can be claimed through your medical insurance provider. Private Health Cover Claims will only be considered if you, the patient, have been referred by a General Practitioner and completed a sleep study and treatment for Snoring or OSA has been recommended. Medicare will cover some of the treatment when associated with a Sleep study – whether this is an in home Sleep Study or an In Clinic Overnight Sleep Study.
In Australia, most private health insurers will cover MAS in some form as a Major Dental under item #984.
Talk to your Private Health Insurer about what your out of pocket expenses may be, as all insurers have varying cover.
