There is an accommodation fee and a procedure fee charged for each sleep study.
The accommodation fee is fully covered by your private heath fund if you have TOP hospital cover.
We advise you to contact your health fund prior to admission to determine your level of cover.
To ascertain your level of cover you may need to quote the item numbers as below:
Diagnostic Sleep Study 12203
CPAP trial or re-titration 12203
MSLT / MWT 11003
The Burnside Hospital Accounts Department will also confirm with you any health fund excess payable by you and a letter will be forwarded to you with the details. If you have any queries concerning the accommodation fee, please telephone (08) 8202 7222.
If you have an “excess” to pay this must be paid to the Burnside Hospital prior to or on admission. You can pay your invoice online here (link to bill payment section).
A procedure fee is payable to the specialist who interprets your sleep study results.
Your specialist will forward this direct to your Health Fund and in due course, you will be advised of the amount paid on your behalf for this service.
