TMJ Doctors and Insurance

I'm new to the board. As I read the threads one thing that strikes me is that many of you are spending thousands of dollars, perhaps tens of thousands of dollars for treatment, even if you have insurance. I've had TMJ problems for 25 years, and as such I've been to many, many doctors. I've moved a couple of times, so I've seen doctors from New York City to Richmond. Some of the doctors I've been to have told me that they don't accept insurance, basically it's a cash only pratice. I've been polite and said thanks but no thanks. I've moved forward and found excellent doctors who take insurance. Some of the doctors have told me that I won't have any luck finding a doctor (dentist) who takes insurance, that noone takes insurance for TMJ. I've proven them wrong. OK This is my soap box for today. It's just something to think about. Have a great weekend. - Peggy
