Home sleep studies are an excellent sleep testing option for those people who are suspected of having sleep apnea. Instead of spending the night at a sleep center, you perform the test at home on your own by using a small testing device that monitors your breathing, oxygen levels, and snoring to assist in screening for sleep apnea.
Certain requirements need to be met for the at Home Apnea Screening and some patients will be required to have an in lab sleep testing based on their sleep disorder and/or medical needs.
The next day you return the home sleep study machine so the data can be removed and analyzed.
Home sleep studies are approved by most insurance companies and cost about 1/4 the cost of an overnight sleep study in a clinic.
For most insurance plans, you do not need a primary care referral to meet with one of our sleep doctors or to have a home sleep study. If you need an appointment, please call us at 480-830-3900 or email us.
