About Insurance

The majority of our patients have a medical problem with both a dental and medical solution. Therefore, we are medical insurance providers.

Insurance Plans:

Dr Abbott is an in-network medical insurance provider for:

  • Carefirst (BlueCross/BlueShield)
  • Medicare
  • TRICARE

For all other insurance plans where you can go to an out of network provider, our office will be happy to submit your claim forms for you, but our policy is that you pay us and your insurance company reimburses you directly. Our office will also work with you where necessary to help get preauthorization for your oral devices.

Insurance coverage for oral devices for sleep apnea

Most major insurance companies including Medicare and Tricare do cover oral devices for sleep apnea if they determine it to be medically necessary. Some insurance companies require preauthorization for treatment and others do not.

Insurance coverage facial pain and TMJ disorders

Insurance coverage for facial pain and TMJ depends on the insurance company and your policy. Medicare currently covers the initial consultation and follow-up appointments. Other insurance plans have rules regarding co-pays, deductibles, and co-insurance.

Please call (301) 530-8570 for questions related to your insurance or if you would like to set up an appointment. If we are unavailable, you may leave a message on our answering machine and your call will be returned within the next business day. Additionally, you may email us at info@sleep-tmj.com. Please include your name, phone number, and best time to contact you.
