Medical Coverage for a Sleep Study
As a licenced sleep laboratory, most of our services are covered by OHIP provided that you have a valid Ontario Health Card number (HCN). Please remember to bring your health card to your appointments.
Effective July 1, 2010, The Ministry of Health and Long Term Care revised the funding available to patients for sleep studies:
- Each patient is allowed one diagnostic study a lifetime
- Should you develop another sleep disorder in the time after you first sleep study, you may be eligible for another diagnostic study after 12 months
- In addition to your diagnostic study, patients are eligible for a treatment (titration) study if deemed necessary by your sleep physician
- If you are prescribed CPAP therapy, you are eligible for a repeat titration study every 2 years if clinically required
