Billing information about Sleep Studies
There are modest out-of-pocket fees associated with consultations. The sleep study itself is covered by the Medicare rebate and does not incur a “gap” fee. Many private health insurance policies will cover the bed fee associated with sleep studies. Estimates can be provided for self-funded patients who do not have health fund coverage by contacting the hospital directly.
