I have Cigna PPO Plus for health insurance. I don't know about a "Cigna home study" but I did a home study with an in-network provider. My healthcare is all done at the Oregon Health Sciences University and in general everything they do is in network for Cigna which is handy.

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

The rub is probably that cigna requires a board certified person to order any sleep study. I think this called shooting oneself in the foot. Though likely it's a CYA response to ridiculous law suit awards.

a primary care doc is board certified or they wouldn't be a doctor. most of my sleep studies were ordered by a pcp.

Will look again. I may have misread. I do know mega monster hospital sleep center refused my GPs order for a sleep study because I hand carried it to said mmhsc front desk.
My interpretation was cigna required board cert in sleep medicine.

Not sure why they didn't like hand carried orders but oh well. Have your doc fax it to them.

My regular doc ordered a sleep study. It was done. The doc on staff where I had the sleep study done then faxed the script over to my regular doc who then signed it and then I got my machine. That was my first test.

I learned a lot since then, especially from this forum and so when my new doc wrote the script (he specialized in sleep disorders) and it was not for an auto, I called him and asked for an auto. Since I was being switched to a VPAP, I wasn't going to get one that was not an auto just in case. Those machines are expensive and I wanted to be able to have a range just in case. I still don't understand how my pressure range can be an auto but I have not had time to learn about it with all that is going on with trying to save some children for several years now. Some things are just pretty urgent, time consuming and we had to prioritize. So yea it is true that I have no clue how my machine works. Sorry for rambling off track.
