Medicare Coverage for CBCT Imaging At Reveal Diagnostics

January 23, 2024

If you are a dentist, oral surgeon, or ENT doctor who frequently treats elderly patients or those with chronic health conditions, this post is for you. Here, we detail how you can leverage the potential of CBCT imaging studies covered under Medicare for your patients over 65 who are enrolled in the program.

CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) technology is instrumental in offering precise and effective treatment plans for various conditions. At Reveal Diagnostics, we are committed to offering state-of-the-art CBCT imaging studies for better patient outcomes. In our commitment to facilitate accessible healthcare for all, we’re delighted to confirm that our sinus scan / sleep apnea and TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint) studies qualify for Medicare coverage for patients aged 65 and over.

TMJ disorders, sinus issues, and sleep apnea can severely affect the quality of life of elderly patients. With high-quality imaging from CBCT, doctors can form a complete picture of the patients’ oral health condition. 

This, in turn, can lead to accurate diagnosis and an efficient treatment plan, hence resulting in improved health and overall well-being. Medicare coverage for these studies ensures that this critical care can be delivered to patients over 65 who require it the most, reducing their out-of-pocket healthcare costs significantly.

At Reveal Diagnostics, we also offer CBCT scans for dental purposes that are covered by Medicare under specific circumstances. Dental health, as we all know, is closely tied with our overall health.

Some chronic medical conditions such as diabetes, AIDS, heart disease, cancer, among others, can significantly affect dental health, making regular dental check-ups and interventions a critical part of the patient's care plan.

Our dental CBCT scans help medical professionals analyze oral health in detail and in connection with these chronic medical conditions, providing comprehensive insights to aid in the delivery of quality care.

Medicare coverage for dental CBCT scans for patients with these underlying chronic conditions brings significant financial relief, ensuring that cost does not act as a deterrent to receiving the essential health services they require.

If your patients are over 65 and suffer from chronic medical conditions impacting their oral health, they can benefit from Medicare coverage for these critical diagnostic studies.

At Revealdiagnostics, we're committed to providing unparalleled service and up-to-date diagnostic technologies to aid you in delivering exceptional care to your patients.
