Dollars and Cents
The Sioux Falls sleep center is a standalone, physician based, sleep laboratory. It is not affiliated with a major health system. This can reflect in significant savings to you, the patient. When you go to community hospitals they charged the fee for performing the study, and a tag along the facility fees and other fees that can easily doubled cost of the study. Some hospitals in Sioux Falls charge more than $4000 for a polysomnography or nighttime sleep study. Our total cost is between $1200 and $1500 If you have health insurance, your co-pay would be an office co-pay and the range of $20-$50 according to your plan. However, if you have health insurance, and you go to a hospital for sleep testing, you are responsible of 20% of the total sum. This is why people drive more than four hours to come to our center, and use the money they saved for a night out on the town.
