You are here
Welcome to Sleep Clinic Services - Australia's leading in-home sleep studies provider
A diagnostic sleep study is an important first step in helping you deal with sleep apnea. And that's exactly what we're here to help you with.
"I have had many sleep studies over the years
but I have never been as comfortable and well cared for."
As a patient of ours, you'll experience an award winning level of service and care. You'll be cared for as a person, not treated like a 'case'. And you'll find the entire experience of getting your diagnostic sleep study as stress- and hassle-free as possible.
Why choose us for your in home sleep study?
Sleep Clinic Services is an award-winning pioneer in the field of home based sleep studies in Australia. Over the past decade we've helped literally thousands of people get their sleep studies done in the privacy, comfort and convenience of their own bedroom.
Unlike most other diagnostic providers, we don't make you come to us. You have better ways to spend your time and money, so we deliver the diagnostic sleep study unit directly to your door. Innovative service improvements like this are part of the reason why our patient satisfaction rating hovers around 94%.
"So easy and it's done at my own home.
The whole experience with the Sleep Clinic Services Staff was great."
Our Sleep Therapists will go out of their way to help you avoid the delays, wasted time, unnecessary expenses and frustrations which so many others experience.
Are home sleep studies covered by Medicare?
Yes. When done through Sleep Clinic Services, your in home diagnostic sleep study will be recognised by Medicare as a professional grade 'polysomnogram' rather than a mere 'apnea screening', which many others provide.
Our sleep studies record your brain activity, cardiac activity, breathing patterns and stoppages, your blood oxygen levels, stages of sleep, dream time, sleeping position, limb movement and much more. Many leading hospitals use the same diagnostic equipment.
"I was a little hesitant about doing a sleep study. I had visions of trying to sleep in a cold, sterile and unfamiliar environment, far removed from my current sleep environment. Nothing could be so different. The best way to do a sleep study, for sure, and the results have been startling."
Normally, the full cost of a diagnostic sleep study is over $560, however most people who call us qualify for a Medicare rebate. We'll check whether you satisfy the criteria and if so we will do the necessary referral documentation for you to get a Medicare rebate which fully covers this.
Your only out of pocket expense will be a clinical preparation fee which covers the preparation of your diagnostic unit, delivery to your door and return to us afterward, insurance for the expensive equipment while it is in transit, data transfers, liaison with the sleep scientist and sleep physician on your behalf, and replacement of the nasal cannula and other consumable sensors used for your study.
The clinical preparation fee depends on where you are located and when you need your study done, so please contact us to check. Patients tell us our fees are average, but our home based sleep studies are vastly more convenient and comfortable, and our service is much better.
After you've slept overnight wearing the diagnostic recorder, the recorded data will be analysed by one of our specialist Sleep & Respiratory Physicians who will diagnose the nature and severity of your condition. You will get a very detailed report explaining everything.
You'll be surprised at how much the study finds – and your Sleep Therapist will explain everything to you in 'plain English' instead of confusing medical terminology.
You will not be required to travel to an appointment with a Sleep Physician, unless you desire one.
Our Guarantee to you...
You're a person, not a 'case'. So getting you a good diagnostic result is our objective.
That's why we guarantee our in home sleep studies will deliver a successful diagnostic report. If the Sleep Scientist or Sleep Physician consider it necessary, we will perform another sleep study for you at no charge. No other sleep study provider offers to do this.
"I previously had a sleep study in (Name removed) hospital but the strange noises and environment kept me from sleeping properly and so the study was a failure. A complete waste of time and money. I'm glad I learned about your in home sleep studies otherwise I would still be undiagnosed and untreated..."
"After being referred to a different service by my doctor, and being totally dissatisfied, I can say that you guys far surpass the competition."
Conducting first class home based sleep studies is our core business, not merely a side line. Making sleep studies available to people who don't have the time, money or ability to get to a sleep lab is our particular expertise. That's why we're a preferred supplier to the Royal Flying Doctor Service; it's the reason we've been accredited as training providers for the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners; and it's the reason why many leading companies choose us for sleep studies associated with the health and safety of their employees.
"To say you have helped me and your support has been professional
would be like saying the view from Mt Everest is good!"
We can help you. It's what we're here for.
