It isn't only the States, trust me. Here Canada, at least in Ontario, dental is not paid for under our provincial health plan, in any way, shape or form. And it is unfortunate that the benefits packages I've seen from several different employers also do not cover tmj treatments, even the best plans don't want to cover tmj.
If only someone would do a study, and prove what health problems are related to tmj issues and show the related health care costs, it might make some of these companies sit up and take notice.
As for how to pay...does your specialist offer a payment plan? I totally understand the extra costs involved (chiro, etc), but the ultimate goal is for you not to have a need to those care providers after the tmj treatment is completed.
