In order to diagnose Sleep Apnea or other sleep disorders, a patient must undergo a polysomnography (sleep study). This is typically done in a sleep lab, requiring the patient to spend the night in-lab, while the polysomnography (PSG) equipment records his/her physiological data. However, today with technological advancements a polysomnograpy
can be performed at home and is called home sleep testing (HST) or a home sleep study.
Benefits of Home Sleep Testing:
1. The patient self-administers the home sleep test, and is able to spend the night in the patient's own bed in
familiar surroundings (reducing first night effect).
2. Home sleep testing, a home sleep study, can be especially advantageous to the home-bound, elderly, or those with chronic illness, who require specialized care such as a nurse or family member spending the night, expensive transportation costs, etc.
It is also beneficial for those with trouble arranging time out of their schedules to spend the night in-lab. 3. The typical cost of a home sleep test or a home sleep study is only a fraction of the cost of an in-lab sleep study, and typically yields similar results in the diagnosis of Obstructive Sleep Apnea.

Coding & Reimbursement for Home Sleep Testing
It is important to be informed on the coverage, contracting, coding and
reimbursement requirements of payors when considering offering home
sleep testing within your practice. As payor policies are constantly evolving
with respect to home sleep testing, this serves as a guide to help you
navigate the key issues with your payor set.
The information below provides an overview of CPT® coding applicable to unattended sleep studies for a patient suspected of having sleep apnea. When selecting a CPT code, healthcare providers should choose the code
that most accurately identifies the procedure or service performed.
CPT Code 95800
Sleep study, unattended, simultaneous recording: heart rate, oxygen
saturation, respiratory analysis (eg, by airflow or peripheral arterial tone),
and sleep time.
CPT Code 95806
Sleep study, unattended, simultaneous recording of heart rate, oxygen
saturation, respiratory airflow and respiratory effort.
HCPCS Code G0399
Home sleep test with Type III portable monitor, unattended; minimum of four channels: two respiratory movement/airflow, one ECG/heart rate and one oxygen saturation.
Commonly Used ICD-9 Codes for
Type III Home Sleep Test/ Home Sleep Study
Obstructive sleep apnea
in conditions classified elsewhere
Insomnia with sleep apnea, unspecified
Hypersomnia with sleep apnea, unspecified
Unspecified sleep apnea
