The costs associated with an overnight sleep study vary depending on your insurance coverage. You best bet is to speak with our insurance specialist and she can look into your particular coverage options.

Sleep studies are covered by most major insurance plans. If you do not have health insurance, you may call our office to arrange payment.

The cost can vary. First you need to come into the office for a consultation to determine if the doctor feels you have sleep apnea or if there are other medical conditions that could be causing problems when you sleep. We take all insurance, but if you are self pay our office visit charge would be $250.00. we can give a discount if you pay in full at the time of service. If the doctor feels you need a sleep study we can offer an in home study for $500.00. If an overnight study is needed the cost is around $2000.00.

The cost of a sleep study will vary based on your specific insurance coverage. If you want to pay out of pocket, contact your local sleep lab as their charges may also vary.
