UnitedHealthcare (UHC) recently informed its providers that it has developed a revised policy on Attended Polysomnography for Evaluation of Sleep Disorders.

UHC has attempted to align its policy with the recommendations in the AASM Clinical Practice Guideline for Diagnostic Testing for Adult OSA. In addition to those changes, the new policy will now include a hypopnea definition that uses the AASM Scoring Manual’s recommended hypopnea scoring criteria.

The new policy will go into effect on Dec. 1, 2017.
