How would you code for a pap nap?
A Pap-nap is an abbreviated sleep study typically used to help patient adjust to a CPAP and is performed for less than 6-hours during the day. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine recommends providers use CPT code 95807-52. A typical sleep study is 6 or more hours. When the sleep study is less than 6 hours Modifier 52 is reported for reduced services. Some payers do consider a Pap-nap to be investigational and/or a non-covered service and will not reimburse for this service. It is recommended you check with the individual payer before performing the procedure.
