It is a sobering statistic but 80 percent of people with sleep apnea are undiagnosed. When left untreated, sleep apnea increases the individual’s risk for life-threatening diseases such as high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes. Compounding the issue is the fact that over 50 percent of sleep apnea sufferers who have been diagnosed are not complaint with traditional treatment, i.e. continuous positive airway pressure therapy (CPAP).
At Sleep Apnea Treatment Centers of America (SATCOA), our mission is to raise sleep apnea awareness, and offer a cure for this condition with radiofrequency ablation (RFA). Unfortunately, at the present time, many insurance companies are behind the times and not reimbursing for coverage of this treatment option.
Don’t you deserve insurance coverage to not only safeguard your future health but also have the option of a sleep apnea cure? You can make a difference by signing the online petition to force the health insurance industry to take a closer look at the merits of radiofrequency ablation.
