Tip Tuesday: Why Myofunctional Therapy Is So Important

Why Is Myofunctional Therapy So Important?

Myofunctional therapy is designed to target any weakness and dysfunction in the muscles that surround the oral cavity, the airway, and the tongue. Muscle dysfunction is the leading cause of an underdeveloped jaw, which is why addressing muscle dysfunction leads to successful treatment outcomes for your patients. 

As you, the doctor, help create new space in the mouth and airway, we come in to teach the patient on how to properly use this newly acquired space. We teach the tongue to stay up and away from the airway as well as how to consistently and properly breathe through the nose.

What’s New with BIS

Why become a non-par DME provider through Medicare? BALANCE BILLING!

Many providers think that becoming a Medicare provider means that they must accept low rates. While Medicare only allows a certain amount for oral appliances in OSA treatment, being a non-par (or non-participating) provider with Medicare DME means you can balance bill your patients the remaining balance over what Medicare will allow. Getting clients in the door can be a battle, and what a great way to increase foot traffic in your office!

Becoming a non-par DME provider does not mean you have to accept Medical dental policies either! Reach out to [email protected] today to find out how we can help you get registered with Medicare today! 

Suppose you are a participating provider with Medicare and would like to opt out and become a non-par instead. In that case, you need to complete before the end of the year, or you will be locked into being a participating provider for another whole year! We can help with this as well.

BIS is excited to announce a new CE course! Check out “Beyond MAD with Dr. Chris Farrugia”!
