They don't cover cosmetic procedures.
INFORMATION ON APNEA BOARD FORUMS OR ON APNEABOARD.COM SHOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED AS MEDICAL ADVICE. ALWAYS SEEK THE ADVICE OF A PHYSICIAN BEFORE SEEKING TREATMENT FOR MEDICAL CONDITIONS, INCLUDING SLEEP APNEA. INFORMATION POSTED ON THE APNEA BOARD WEB SITE AND FORUMS ARE PERSONAL OPINION ONLY AND NOT NECESSARILY A STATEMENT OF FACT.

I suspect my wife would deem it "medically advisable" with a view to using it during waking hours.

My wife said, only if it comes with a remote control.

Actually most insurance will cover 'medically necessary' cosmetic procedures. One could argue that adding a zipper in this case would be medically necessary....

Now as to whether they cover experimental procedures, that might be another sticking point. I have a feeling there isn't a lot of proven research regarding this particular choice.
