Frequently Asked Questions
Coverage or medical necessity for eXciteOSA may vary by health insurance payer. eXciteOSA’s HCPCS codes (K1028 & K1029) became effective April 1, 2022. At the time this was written, we have not seen published coverage policies that specify medical necessity requirements. As a result, coverage decision will be made on a case by case basis. Some payers may provide prior authorization based on the patient’s medical history and clinical documentation.**
eXciteOSA® is a neuromuscular electrical stimulator (NMES) that safely activates nerves and trains muscles. Use for just 20 minutes a day, every day for six weeks, to improve the quality of your sleep.
You’re in control of your own therapy. Use the smartphone app to control the intensity of the stimulation and get guidance, reminders and notifications about your therapy.
The clinical evidence on eXciteOSA® shows an improvement in quality of sleep by reducing snoring and sleep apnea when used for 20 minutes, once a day for 6 weeks.1-2
79% of sleep apnea patients achieved reduction in objective OSA measures.3
90% of patients experienced reduction in objectively-measured snoring time.4
eXciteOSA® received FDA authorization in February 2021, and was publicly launched in April 2021.
Yes, a prescription is required for eXciteOSA®. Please complete our assessment to find out if you’re a candidate, and speak to a sleep specialist about a prescription for eXciteOSA®.
Our specialist will assess your symptoms and order you a home sleep apnea test if needed.
Better sleep or your money back.*
If you do not experience improved sleep after completing 70% of 42 therapies in 8 weeks, we will refund you the price of the device.
MAD / CPAP
|Treats a root cause of snoring|
|Nothing to wear at night|
|Low cost trial period|
|Helps your body to help itself|
There are several options for treating sleep apnea.
Manudibular advancement devices (MADs) work by temporarily moving the jaw forward, in order to create more space in the airway.
CPAP delivers air pressure through a mask to open up the airway.
Surgery is usually an option to consider after other treatments have failed. Examples include removal of soft tissues from the airway, or procedures designed to stiffen the airway.
NMES physiologically retrains the upper airway and tongue to maintain the tongue’s natural position while you sleep, effectively helping your body help itself. eXciteOSA For Sleep Apnea is the only device that delivers NMES.
*The eXciteOSA Better Sleep Guarantee: Consistent use is critical to success. While we don’t expect perfection, we do ask that you complete 70% of your 42 therapies within 8 weeks of receiving your product before receiving your refund. Refunds are available to customers who purchased eXciteOSA without using covered benefits or had the device reimbursed under any type of health insurance.
A session is equivalent to 20 minutes. In addition, it is recommended that you increase the therapy intensity gradually over the treatment period to ensure that you give the treatment every chance of being effective. Please note that once the initial therapy is finished and to maintain the treatment you need to use the device at least twice a week forever.
The mouthpiece is a precision piece of engineering responsible for delivering neuromuscular electrical stimulation targeted primarily at the tongue. It needs to be replaced every 3 months.
