Our billing consultants will bill your insurance company. However, if the third party payer does not pay you are responsible for the fees.

If an overnight sleep study or daytime nap test is ordered, our billing consultants will get the test(s) pre-certified for you. Again, there is no charge to you for this billing service.

If your insurance company requires a referral from your primary care physician, it is your responsibility to obtain this referral prior to your appointment. The referral may be faxed to our office.
