CBT for insomnia lowers healthcare costs; still not widely available

Cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia has been proven time and time again to be one of the most effective insomnia treatments - even for those who have suffered with insomnia for years.

Now a new study has found that even brief cognitive behavioral treatments for insomnia yield positive results.

84 outpatients with an average age of 54 (58% were women) were treated in a behavioral sleep medicine clinic.

Those who completed at least 1 brief cognitive behavioral treatment experienced lower health care utilization costs after treatment. 

Those who completed 3 or more treatments saw average decreases in CPT costs of around $200 and estimated total costs of $75. 

In other words, cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia can reduce healthcare utilization costs (and can significantly improve sleep in as few as 3 treatments) - yet CBT for insomnia is still far too inaccessible for most people.

That needs to change.
