Please accept my apologies for taking so long to get back with you. Our office has been closed and just re-opened today. To the best of my knowledge, Medicare does not cover the cost of fabricating and the delivering of a sleep apnea dental device. If you have any further questions or would like to schedule an appointment, please let me know.

Yes, but you need to find a provider that accepts it.
