Respiratory Question for the Week of November 16, 2020

Respiratory Compliance Question of the Week


Can we report an unattended sleep study along with a code for cardiac monitoring?


The unattended study is not to be reported in conjunction with the code for cardiac monitoring (93041-93229 or 93268-93272), actigraphy (95803), or other unattended sleep study (95806). Codes 95800 and 95801 should never be reported together during the same session.
