Continuing the conversation started by Qamar Islam in his article printed on October 29th, we would like to propose a few more ways to contain healthcare costs in addition to taking ownership of your medical records. There are several ways you can save money when it comes to managing your sleep health.
Tip #1: Evaluate the medical facility. When a facility can diagnose,
treat, provide medical supplies and follow up appointments, the costs are significantly lower and care improves. For example, Athens Sleep and Wellness Center has taken this idea of a one-stop-shop and put it into practice by providing initial consultation, diagnostics, DME services and CPAP clinic follow-ups.
This integrated approach allows for shorter turnaround times, quicker treatment initiation, better care and lower healthcare costs. With customized follow up, compliance with therapy rises and healthcare outcomes improve.
