Sleep Apnea Information for Doctors
SleepQuest is a contracted provider with most major health insurance organizations, as well as numerous medical groups, managed care organizations, and national networks. Many insurers require objective clinical measures before approving PAP treatment or surgical interventions. Our sleep study report supplies primary care physicians with the exact information necessary to prescribe a successful treatment plan and secure insurance coverage for their patients. We also create specialized sleep care management programs for medical groups, employers and insurance companies to greatly reduce the costs of sleep care and assure positive outcomes (i.e. compliance with therapy).
Importance of diagnosing and treating Sleep Apnea
The home-based diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnea is a growing and vital field, because medical providers and health insurance companies have realized that early detection is more cost-effective and conveniently manageable than the deadly consequences of apnea-related diseases such as obesity, hypertension, heart failure, stroke, sexual dysfunction, and depression².
