The American Academy of Sleep Medicine has launched the “Act on Actigraphy” campaign highlighting the importance of actigraphy testing for sleep disorders and urging payers to reimburse health care professionals for this evidence-based medical service. Many payers still list actigraphy as “experimental” or do not reimburse for the service, presenting a significant access-to-care barrier for patients who would benefit from this sleep assessment. The AASM is reaching out to private and public payers, including the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), to advocate for policy revisions allowing reimbursement for actigraphy as a standalone service.

We ask that members take action and join in this payer advocacy campaign by downloading a template letter, urging payors to update policies to include reimbursement for actigraphy, as supported in the medical literature.
