OIG 2011 Work Plan: Sleep Testing

Because Medicare payments for sleep testing has increased from $62 million in 2001 to $235 million in 2009, the OIG will review the appropriateness of payments for such testing and the factors contributing to such a steep increase in payments. Additionally, the OIG will examine the appropriateness of Medicare payments for sleep testing at sleep disorder clinics and whether or not the sleep tests procedures were in accordance with Medicare requirements.
