Thanks for the D2D. Here are some cost estimates for sleep apnea treatment in Singapore:
The initial cost would be the consultation (from $150) and possibly a flexible nasoendoscopy cost (from $250) to determine the levels of obstruction and medical issues that need to be managed holistically.
A sleep study is usually needed (from $500 depending on type needed). The costs thereafter would really depend on what type of treatment is, depending on the cause and severity of sleep apnea. Example, medications, CPAP machines, surgery – the cost would differ widely. The prices of CPAP machines and masks usually start from $1,000 for good quality ones.
However, the total cost would really depend on what the cause of the sleep apnea is eventually.
Medisave and insurance coverage for the consult, nasal scopes to identify sites of airway blockage and medications is not a problem.
For sleep study and CPAP machines, different insurers and Medisave coverage can be patchy, so do check for your specific coverage entitlements first, as the individual would have signed for different coverage.
Surgery for the various sites of obstruction have been covered usually, but it would still be wise to clear with your specific insurer first.
