Two night sleep study when only one is ordered

Postby Awake » Tue Sep 22, 2015 8:10 pm

Does anyone have any information on performing and billing two separate HST nights when the order is for an HST? This is billed in an office setting with two different interpretations,two different dates, and 2 separate bills. My initial thought is that if the physician orders two night HST then it would be OK however I found much resistance from this thought. The opposing thought is that you can always run two nights. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

IF that was the case then anyone ordering PSG would be covered for it, and we know who won that battle.
