Why Sleep Apnea Treatment Is Worth the Cost
Sleep apnea treatment is an invaluable investment in your health and quality of life. Our home kits usually cost between $295 and $495, including shipping and handling. Standard in-lab diagnosis runs between $1,400 and $1,800 with a facility fee if applicable. Our Sleep Care Specialists can help you determine which method is best for you.
Sleep apnea disorder has a number of symptoms that can take a devastating toll on your daily routine. Because sleep apnea repeatedly causes you to wake up or move to a lighter stage of sleep during the night, you are never able to remain in the deepest levels of sleep that are necessary for fulfilling, rejuvenating rest. As a result, you wake up most mornings feeling exhausted. This exhaustion continues throughout the day, which affects your performance in your professional and personal life. The mood swings and irritability that often accompany chronic lack of sleep can take a huge toll on you and your family. You may have even fallen asleep or "zoned out" at work or in social settings. Even more alarmingly, you may drive when sleepy, endangering your and others' safety. When our patients begin treatment, they immediately begin to notice the priceless improvements in their quality of life.
The most serious effects of sleep apnea are life-threatening and result in long term health risks. Every time you stop breathing during the night, carbon dioxide builds up in your blood, and your heart must pump harder to remove it. This continual stress on your heart can lead to increased risk of cardiovascular disease, heart attack, high blood pressure, and other heart problems. In addition, sleep apnea has been linked to other conditions such as obesity, epilepsy, stroke, and nerve disorders.
Because of the significant health benefits of sleep apnea treatment, all or part of your care may be covered by your insurance company. SleepQuest has national contracts with Aetna, Humana, and can provide services for every major PPO in the country. We are always looking to partner with more insurance companies and care networks to make affordable sleep apnea treatment available to a greater number of patients across the country.
