The American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) has worked closely with the American Medical Association (AMA) on the development of a new taxonomy code for psychologists and PhDs administering behavioral sleep medicine services. The new code, "Sleep Medicine Specialist, PhD," will be added to the January 2008 release from the NUCC and will take effect April 1, 2008.

More details, including the code number and definition, will be available in January.
