The CDC reports that 50-70 million Americans experience sleep disorders. These are linked to some really unfortunate outcomes including, traffic accidents, hypertension, and just generally feeling tired. With such a high number of Americans experiencing sleep-related health issues, there’s a good chance you or someone you know is affected. 

At Sleep Centers of Alaska, we aim to be a part of decreasing this epidemic, by monitoring and educating you about your sleep and what improvements can be made. So, if you experience sleeping difficulties, it may be a good idea to get into Sleep Centers for a sleep study. While we think most people benefit from sleep studies and treatments, we often hear concern about associated costs. That’s why we’re taking the time to let you know, why now is a great time to start working with Sleep Centers of Alaska. 

Checked your deductible lately? 

Fall is approaching and for many that means insurance deductibles are met (or close to being met) and out of pocket costs for many are low or minimal for various medical interventions. During this time of year, our appointments fill up fast because we’re getting closer to the end of the year and many are taking advantage of their lowered deductibles. But, don’t worry you don’t have to navigate the insurance process on your own. At Sleep Centers, we’re committed to helping you understand every cost that will be associated with your sleep study. That’s why we take the time to do a pre-consultation with you before any treatments are given. We sit down with you, look at your insurance coverage and make sure you understand what will be covered and what will come out of pocket. 

When it comes to billing—we work with you. 

Once treatments are administered and it comes time for the bill, we always send it to your insurance first. We think that sleep health is so important that we go to great lengths to reduce the financial burden to our patients. We also work with you on payment plans. If you can’t pay right away we are willing to work out a payment schedule that works for you and your unique situation. We hate for finances to be a deterrent to those who need treatment. That’s why we are committed to helping you in your unique case get the care and sleep treatment you need. 

So, act now to take advantage of your lowered out of pocket costs and contact us today. We want to help you get the most from your insurance and back to a good night’s sleep.
