Home sleep technology has been used for more than 20 years around the world to lower healthcare costs and get people like you the equipment you need to breathe easier and sleep better.

Technological improvements in the last several years have made it even simpler and more reliable. Medicare was confident enough in the home sleep study to provide coverage in 2008 and since that time, most insurance companies have followed suit and provide coverage.
