Sam Fleishman, MD, and Gerald Rich, MD, presented the American Academy of Sleep Medicine’s application for an actigraphy to American Medical Association’s RUC today.

The AASM’s application had the support of the American Academy of Neurology, American College of Chest Physicians and American Thoracic Society. The RUC will set a value for the actigraphy code, and its recommendation will be published in the coming weeks.

It is expected that the code will be published in January 2009.
