Open enrollment is fast approaching for many employers. With all the different plans and variable costs to consider, it can be difficult to know which plan will provide the best coverage and be the most cost effective option for you.

According to the American Sleep Association, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) impacts roughly 25 million adults in the US. The standard treatment for this breathing disorder is to wear a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) mask during sleep, which forces air into the nose and mouth to overcome the obstruction in the airway. However, many people find it difficult to sleep with a CPAP mask and therefore don’t comply with treatment recommendations. For those unable to tolerate the CPAP, alternative treatment solutions have typically been weight loss, oral appliances or surgery.
