Had mine done years ago at St Joe by interesting guy who previously worked in a Cia lsd research lab. The thing that worries me is lots of referrals from MD and people probably should see a pulmonologist or ent first. Had baseline sleep study and ent fixed deviated septum and remove enlarged and infected tonsils and adenoids. Follow up study showed no remaining issues and my recurring throat infections gone for 30 years now. Know lots of people in cpap that have not had any evaluation of their anatomy for repairable causes.

Price shop. My out of pocket was very different between St. Joe's and The Med on both of my studies. One was cheaper then a few years later, the other one was.

Did you try and cover under health insurance?

My health insurance covered mine. Had it at St Joe's, maybe 5 yrs ago.

My insurance did cover, but because of the price differences, it changed my out of pocket.

+1 on price shop. I had the first test done in October 2016 to apparently prove I do have breathing issues then I sleep. Now they want me to do a second test which will tell them what we needs to be done to fix/treat my issues. I guess I should mention that I have BCBSTX through TAMU, and it's still what I consider expensive.

There is also a home test that you can do at home which is cheaper. I have no idea how good it is, but CS Sleep Center did mention it to me. I really wish that I would have went that route. I've been snoring since I was 3 years old, so to me, I wasted $900 proving it to them.

Had one done at St. Joe's facility (right in front of Blinn college) a couple years ago and it was covered under insurance as in-network HOWEVER the doctor that read the results was NOT in-network. We had to go see him a couple of times and it added up. I was surprised as I never thought to inquire about more than the initial tests as I knew that an overnight test would be outrageously expensive.

One of my many health insurance lessons learned the hard way. Ugh.
