What You Need to Know

Sleep Study Instructions

You should arrive at the Sleep Center at 8:45 p.m. Most nights there will be two patients. The sleep tech will escort you to your private room. You will have the opportunity to fill out any needed forms and change into comfortable sleeping attire.

A tech spends about 45 minutes with you taking the necessary measurements for lead placement. Once the tech is finished with your hook-up, you may read, relax, or watch TV.

Lights out must be no later than 11:00 p.m. This allows for 6-plus hours of recording time for accurate scoring and reading of the study. Please let the sleep tech know if you prefer to have lights out earlier than 11:00 p.m. You will be awakened between 5:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. to return home prior to your workday.

You should bring and take all usual medications, unless specifically instructed by your physician to do otherwise.

Please do not take a nap on the day of your sleep study. Avoid caffeine and alcohol after 2:00 p.m.

Insurance Process

Your physician has ordered a sleep study for you. Sleep studies require an order from your physician. A referral through your insurance company may or may not be necessary. Your ordering physician or primary care physician will obtain the necessary referral or authorization. Please confirm this information with the Referral Specialist at your physician’s office.

If you would like to know your specific co-pay, please look on the back of your insurance card. Call the Customer Service number listed there. Your insurance company will want to know the study your physician has ordered and the diagnostic code your physician has determined. You need to get this information from your doctor before calling your insurance company.
