Respiratory Compliance Question of the Week

Question:

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

Answer:

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.
