Does Circle Medical prescribe medications for insomnia?

Whether you are experiencing recent changes in your ability to sleep or you have been experiencing sleep issues for years, your Circle Medical provider will be able to fully assess your sleep, and create a customized treatment plan for you, which may include medication if medically appropriate.

At Circle Medical, assessing your health as a whole is our number one priority. During your sleep appointment, your provider will screen for common underlying conditions that could be affecting your sleep as well as discuss your past medical history. Your Circle Medical provider may also suggest blood work to assess for any underlying medical causes for your difficulty sleeping, which can be completed at any of our over 4,000 conveniently located partner locations.

Your provider may also want to screen you for sleep apnea and assess your sleep efficiency with an at-home sleep study that is mailed right to your door.

Rest assured that your treatment plans at Circle Medical will include an evidence-based approach that is specific to your unique medical history.

Participating in an at-home sleep study has never been easier. The steps are as follows:

  • The device pairs with a free app on our phone that will walk you through the easy set up process

  • Sleep (in your own bed!) and perform a two-night sleep study

  • After your sleep study is complete, return the device using an included pre-paid envelope

  • Attend a follow-up appointment with your provider to review the results and determine next steps (it generally takes 4-5 days for your provider to recieve the completed analysis based on the results of your study)

Get Treatment

How we determine what treatment is right for you

Based on the results of your sleep study, the severity of your Sleep Apnea, and other relevant health factors, your provider will recommend one or or a combination of the following treatment options and paths:

1. Behavior Modification

Many mild cases of Sleep Apnea can be treated by losing weight, changes in frequency and intensity in exercise, breath work, reducing alcohol consumption, stopping smoking, and more.

2. CPAP Machine or Equivalent

If a patient’s Sleep Apnea is significant enough that behavior changes alone are not effective, the typical treatment for Sleep Apnea is the use of a CPAP machine or similar device to help regulate a patient’s breathing while they sleep. 

Available only with a prescription, CPAP machines have continued to evolve along with other medical technology, and have become easier than ever to use. Your provider will be able to recommend a CPAP device that is most compatible with your lifestyle, and will be covered by most insurance plans. Prescriptions for oral appliances are also available if applicable.

3. Referral

In very rare or extreme cases, or for patients who are unable or would prefer not to use a CPAP device or other device, Circle Medical providers can make an appropriate diagnosis and refer the patient out to an appropriate specialist.

Once you have chosen and started a treatment plan, your provider will prescribe a follow-up sleep study to confirm that your treatment is working.

I get answers within the same day. Sometimes in an hour. It feels like a concierge service. I can call whenever I want. Make an appointment when I want, and get quick answers to all of my questions.

I have really loved using Circle Medical. I use Circle for both ADHD treatment and as my primary care provider. I’ve had an easy time with making appointments, seeing my doctors, and I receive amazing care. I work long hours and it’s difficult for me to visit typical doctor’s offices, so it’s nice to have a well rounded online clinic. I also feel that Circle Medical has a great background and it feels more secure knowing that they are tied to a large hospital with a great track record.

Frequently Asked

Insomnia care

How do I know if I should see a provider for insomnia?

If you are having difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, you may benefit from meeting with a Board-Certified provider to receive a full evaluation of your sleep. 

What can I expect in my appointment?

During your appointment, your provider will conduct a full evaluation of your sleep. If you have recently experienced changes to your ability to sleep, your provider will be able to help you diagnose the underlying causes. Your provider may prescribe non controlled medications for a short period of time to help you sleep. If you are experiencing chronic, ongoing insomnia, your provider will be able to develop a custom approach to improving your sleep.

Can I receive Ambien or other prescriptions for insomnia?

You will not be able to receive Ambien or other controlled medications through our practice. In some instances, you may be prescribed non-controlled medications to help you sleep. Note that booking and paying for an appointment does not guarantee that you will receive any prescription medications, and all treatment plans are at the discretion of your provider.

How often will I meet with a provider?

You’ll be able to work with your provider to decide how often to have appointments based on your needs. Using the mobile app, you can book, cancel, and reschedule appointments with your provider as you need.

How long will it take to see results/improve my sleep habits?

Your provider will create a custom treatment plan for you based on your needs. Depending on your treatment plan and your specific underlying causes, the amount of time it takes to see results and improvements will vary.

How does the cost compare to traditional insomnia treatment?

Depending on your unique circumstances, the number of appointments that you will have may vary.

With insurance coverage, the majority of our patients pay $5-$50 per appointment, depending on their insurance plan. This makes receiving comprehensive insomnia treatment more affordable when compared to sleep programs that do not accept insurance.

Our self-pay appointments are $100 each.

General

Where are Circle Medical’s clinics located? Where can I get care?

Circle Medical has in-person clinics in California and is expanding its in-person presence across the US, but you can get high quality care via telemedicine video appointments in 30 states across the US.

To see what states are currently available, please start booking an appointment and the available states will show as options for you to select.

What is the total cost of treatment?

Circle Medical is a primary care practice, which means that the only fee due to us is the cost of the appointment itself. We accept insurance, so your plan may pay some or all of the appointment fee. Circle does not charge any ongoing membership fees to use our platform.

If you are prescribed medications, you will pay for them when you pick them up at a pharmacy.

Insured

We contract with most PPO insurance plans. If you are a California Bay Area resident, we also work with a small number of HMO plans.

To verify if we work with your insurance, simply start booking an appointment online. You will be prompted to enter your insurance details and will receive eligibility results instantly as well as an estimate of your appointment cost prior to confirming your appointment.

Some PPO plans that we currently work with are:

Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Aetna, Blue Shield of California, Cigna, Health Net, Humana, and United Healthcare.

Our insured patients pay an average of $5-$50 per appointment.

Plans that we cannot work with are:

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide care for patients who have Medi-Cal or Medicaid insurance. This is because we are not licensed Medi-Cal or Medicaid providers, so we are not able to provide care, even if these patients choose to pay cash instead of use their insurance. If you have Medi-Cal or Medicaid, please do not book an appointment with us, as we will be unable to provide care even if you do not enter your insurance information.

Uninsured

We also offer a self-pay option at a flat rate of $100 per appointment.

Common factors that contribute to sleep problems

Sleep problems like insomnia can be attributed to a variety of factors. Some of the most common factors are medications, health conditions, lifestyle choices, and your environment. Let’s take a look at some examples:

  • Medical conditions - Medical conditions like stress, chronic pain, asthma, anxiety, depression, and more can interfere with sleep. Certain medications may further exacerbate sleep issues.
  • Lifestyle choices - Certain lifestyle choices can drastically affect sleep quality. Alcohol consumption, too much caffeine, a sedentary lifestyle, and dietary choices can all play a role in sleep quality. Irregular sleep schedules due to shift work or frequent travel can also affect sleep quality.
  • Environment - Our environment is important for sleep. Your sleep environment should be quiet, dark, and cool to prompt quality sleep.
  • Sleep latency - Sleep latency can also indicate poor sleep quality. Sleep latency is the time it takes for you to fall asleep after going to bed. The average sleep latency for normal sleep is 10 to 20 minutes. Falling asleep in a much shorter amount of time could indicate sleep deprivation.

What does insomnia look like in adults?

Insomnia is a sleep disorder commonly characterized by having trouble falling or staying asleep. If you find yourself lying awake in bed or waking up several times throughout the night, you may be dealing with insomnia. Insomnia also bleeds into your daytime activities, as your night of poor quality sleep can lead to fatigue, irritability, and drowsiness throughout the day.

How to get tested and diagnosed online

Chronic insomnia can have serious mental and physical health implications. It’s important to seek a diagnosis and treatment if you suspect you have a sleep disorder. Fortunately, getting a sleep diagnosis is easier than ever thanks to online healthcare. 

If you want to get tested for a sleep disorder online, the first step is to find an online care clinic like Circle Medical. A healthcare provider at your online care clinic will discuss your symptoms and the troubles you’ve been having with sleep. From there, they can send you an at-home sleep study. These are noninvasive and convenient devices that allow your provider to get metrics about your sleep without you needing to go to an in-person sleep clinic. From this data, they can diagnose your sleep disorder and start you on a treatment plan.

How to fall asleep with insomnia

Falling asleep with insomnia can be difficult, but here are some strategies you can try to get a quality night's sleep:

  • Follow a consistent sleep routine - Try waking up and going to bed at the same time each night, even on weekends. This helps your body set its internal clock.
  • Have a good sleep environment - Make your room quiet, dark, and cool to create the ideal sleep environment.
  • Avoid stimulants and food before bed - Stimulants like coffee and nicotine or a large meal before bed can disrupt your sleep schedule.
  • Exercise - Exercising during the day can help you get a better night’s sleep.

Relaxing activities - Try setting a bedtime routine and engage in some relaxing activities to wind down for the night.
