Palmetto GBA has issued a draft local coverage determination for Polysomnography and Sleep Studies for Testing Sleep and Respiratory Disorders.

The draft, which would impact California, Hawaii, and Nevada, states, “The polysomnography must be performed in a facility-based sleep study laboratory, and not in the home or in a mobile facility."

The 45-day comment period for the LCD commenced June 16, 2008.

The draft can be read in its entirety here.
