Insurance Questions

Answers to a Few Common Insurance Questions

What Insurances are Accepted at the Sleep Center?

The Center accepts Medicare, All PPO plans, Motion Picture Health, Writers Guild, Directors Guild and Screen Actors Guild insurance plans for all services provided at the  Center.

Will My Health Insurance Pay for a Sleep Study?

Most insurers pay for sleep studies, if they are medically necessary. To ensure that your study is medically necessary, patients should first undergo a comprehensive consultation. On the basis of this consultation, a preliminary diagnosis is made. This diagnosis is submitted to your insurance company and a pre-authorization is obtained.

If your physician directly refers you for a sleep study without the benefit of a center consultation, you will be asked to fill out a comprehensive questionnaire. The medical director will review this and if the questionnaire supports the medical necessity, a preauthorization will then be obtained from your insurer.
