About Insurance for Temporomandibular (TMJ) Disorders

Medical Insurance Covers TMD

New Mexico law requires that all insurance companies that do business in New Mexico must cover TMJ disorders, but some insurers try to weasel out of their obligation. If this happens to you, we will provide you with some resources to dispute a denial of benefits.

We participate in the major medical plans in New Mexico -- Blue Cross Blue Shield, Presbyterian, and Lovelace. We are considering participating with other plans. 

We do not participate in Medicare. If you are a Medicare recipient, we may be able to help you pay our fee. Ask to discuss this with us. The federal government says that you must sign an agreement with us that defines our financial relationship. You will not be reimbursed by Medicare for any fees we charge.

We will work with you to get the maximum possible benefit from your medical insurer, but your benefits may be limited by your plan, and not cover our entire fee. You are responsible for the full fee.

Please call with any questions about your insurance. 505-474-4644.
