    Has anyone heard of such a test? I'm told the patient takes a monitor strip home and places it in the nostril and over the mouth at bedtime...brings it back the next day for interpretation. The vendor is not being helpful in finding a code - anyone out there know about this? Appreciate the help!!

    Yes there is such a test. Read march 19th edgeblast. It will explain coverage.

    Thank you but I am looking for a CPT or HCPCS code for the at home sleep apnea rapid test. The article in the edgeblast discuses CPAP coverage.

    What about 95806-26. Mod is for interpretaton only. 95806 is for unattended sleep study. E0619 is for recorded apnea monitor. A4556 and A45577 for electrodes and lead wires. Hope this helps! I am just giving ideas.
