    Question Medicare Sleep Studies

    AAPC: Back to School
    Our hospital performs sleep studies (95810) once or twice a month. Often patients come in with symptoms such as snoring, headaches, obesity, GERD, etc. The provider orders a sleep study and I code off of the report when it comes back. We’re finding that Medicare will deny payment if the findings are negative and there is no diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea.
    Is anyone else out there having the same problem?
