Respiratory Question for the Week of October 21, 2019

Respiratory Compliance Question of the Week


Can we receive payment for more than one HST per year per patient?


Performing more than one Home Sleep Test (HST) per year would not be expected. Medical necessity guidelines and frequency limitations may result in the denial of payment for a second HST billed within a 12-month period.
