In order to access a Medicare rebate on a sleep study we need referral from GP or specialist to Health Dynamics. This must include some completed questionnaires. To be eligible for a sleep study without seeing a sleep physician first patients need to score 3 or more (New reduced requirement March 2021) in the STOP BANG questionnaire AND 8 or more in the ESS questionnaire.
A score of up to 10 is regarded as being in the normal range for the ESS. Once we receive the questionnaires with your referral we will book patients in for a study (provided you meet the above criteria), otherwise we will suggest a consultation with one of our sleep physicians.
We specialise in the training and troubleshooting of CPAP, VPAP and BiPAP therapy devices and the associated masks.
Pensioners are currently unable to access government funded rental CPAP units through our service unless referred to us by the Tasmanian Health Service, however we do have other options so please contact our office to discuss.
For more information, call 1300 731 615 to speak to our friendly staff, to arrange a diagnostic sleep study or request more information.
