New Medicare PAP Regulations
Medicare now requires a face-to-face sleep evaluation prior to a patient’s sleep study in order to provide CPAP or Bi-Level PAP treatment for obstructive sleep apnea.
On the compliance form, you can choose to have Sleep HealthCenters manage compliance and Medicare paperwork by having your patient evaluated by Sleep HealthCenters prior to the sleep study; OR, you can choose to manage the patient yourself by providing required information to Sleep HealthCenters along with your sleep study referral.
Compliance forms must be completed or the PAP device and related accessories will be considered not medically necessary and coverage will be denied by Medicare.
