Do insurances cover the cost of The Breather?

At this time most insurances do not cover the cost of THE BREATHER device, but Respiratory Muscle Training may be covered as a component of skilled services, such as RT, ST, OT or PT. Individuals who experience shortness of breath with everyday activities; difficulty swallowing; difficulty speaking; or present with various respiratory, neurological or traumatic conditions have been prescribed treatment by speech, physical, occupational and respiratory therapists to improve function including RMT.

Physicians and other healthcare providers can also provide RMT. Typically these therapies are covered by Medicare and other insurances. Some people have been able to submit their receipts for 
THE BREATHER to their healthcare or flexible spending accounts for reimbursement. That may vary from plan to plan but we encourage you to contact your plan administrator if you have one of these accounts. At $49.95, the cost of THE BREATHER is similar to that of a co-pay of many prescribed medications but will last significantly longer (recommend replacing the Breather after 2 years of use) resulting in a cost-effective treatment option were deemed clinically appropriate. Additionally, THE BREATHER is a non-pharmacological (drug-free), low-cost intervention to strengthen the muscles of respiration with a vast amount of free companion resources online in the way of training and downloadable information, tracking logs, how to clean, and more!
