    Sleep studies are conducted in a variety of settings, e.g., home, independent lab, outpatient hospital, etc. The POS code must reflect the actual site of service.

    Could you lead me to the documentation on this. I am particularly interested in the home sleep studies. Thanks

    If your POS is home (12) , you have to use codes:
    G0398
    G0399
    G0400

    Happy reading!!

    Thanks for the information. I read the LCD's. I am only billing for the reading of these studies and my physician reads them in the outpatient department of the hospital. I really did not see this addressed as far as the reading of the study. Should it still be billed as home?
