Medicare for Sleep Apnea

We are please to announce that the Baltimore Center for Laser Dentistry has been approved as a Durable Medical Equipment provider for Medicare. This status is specifically for fabrication of oral appliances to treat sleep apnea.  For patients that fit the criteria Medicare usually covers the full amount of the cost.  To qualify for a device all you need is

  • A physician's prescription
  • Copy of the sleep study
  • Affidavit of CPAP intolerance 
Oral Appliances are a safe and effective alternative treatment for sleep apnea. Many patients quit CPAP within a few months. Sleep apnea is a serious disease and oral appliances can help make sure you are getting the treatment you need for a healthier life.
