Insurance vs Self-Pay

Many people are under the assumption that going through their insurance providers to take care of their sleep apnea needs is better than paying out-of-pocket. While that would be the case if you were following the traditional sleep apnea diagnosis and treatment method, there is a better and faster and less expensive way to take care of your obstructive sleep apnea.

By working directly with ApneaMed, you are in control of your healthcare, not your insurance company. From taking an at-home sleep test to buying your CPAP machine, ApneaMed is here to help make the whole process easier.
