Referral Process

Geisinger makes every effort to offer you a flawless referral process. Our sleep specialists partner with you, the referring physician, to care for your patient as a team. You will be provided with a full report of the diagnosis, treatment, follow up and compliance plan.

To refer a patient, complete the requisition form (.pdf) and fax to our scheduling department at 1.866.810.6910. Include a copy of the patient’s History & Physical or most recent consult notes. If your patient has had a previous sleep study at another facility, please include those results as well.

Our staff will contact your patient within 24-36 hours to schedule an appointment and obtain any necessary additional information. Once the appointment is scheduled with the patient, we will send confirmation fax to your office with the date and time. Should the patient change or cancel his or her appointment you will be notified.

We are happy to answer any question you or your patients may have regarding scheduling appointments. Geisinger Sleep Services provides referral assistance Monday through Friday from 6:30 am to 6 pm, call toll free at 1.877.507.4957

You may also refer a patient by calling Medlink at 1.800.332.8901.

Medicare/Medicaid Patient Referrals

Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requires a face-to-face sleep evaluation prior to a patient’s sleep study in order to provide CPAP or Bi-level PAP treatment for obstructive sleep apnea.

Please complete all sections of our requisition form (.pdf) and include clinic notes of last office visit documenting clinical evaluation for sleep apnea.

Additionally, a clinical evaluation within 30 to 90 days after initiation treatment with positive airway pressure (PAP) documenting adequate compliance and clinical improvement is mandated to pay for treatment.
