At the Michigan Center for TMJ & Sleep Wellness, we put our patients’ health and wellbeing first. The services we offer are life-changing: our patients tell us all the time that there is a night-and-day difference in their quality of life once they start treatment. Sometimes, our treatments may even be life-saving.
And the good news is that treatment for TMJ , snoring , and sleep apnea is often very affordable. However, sometimes getting the best care may not fit in your immediate budget. We want to make sure all our patients are able to access the care they need, which is why we offer multiple payment and financing options.
Once we have diagnosed your condition, we will develop a treatment plan. Whenever possible, we will actually develop multiple treatment plans so that you can look at them and decide which plan is best for you.
Insurance coverage is very inconsistent and unreliable. Insurance companies are not in the business of making you well, they are in the business of making sure you pay them, but they don’t have to pay for your care. This makes it very difficult for us to arrange for your quality care under uncertain terms of payment.
That’s why we don’t work with insurance companies. Instead, we help you work with your insurance company. We provide you with the information you need to file your claims and get compensation–though the amount is up to your insurer. You are their customer, and they are more likely to respond to you.
Once you have a detailed estimate, you can start making plans for covering expenses. Sometimes, your treatment plan can be accomplished in phases, which can spread out the costs so they fit more easily into your budget. We’ll let you know when that’s the case, because other times treatment should proceed rapidly to protect your health.
