What is it?

At-Home Sleep Study
Participating in an at-home sleep study has never been easier. The steps are as follows:
  • You will be sent a small sleep-monitoring device (smaller than an Oreo cookie)

  • Pair the device with a free app on your phone before going to sleep, and follow the instructions to tape it to the tip of your index finger

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

  • The data will automatically be sent to your provider, and your results will be analyzed by a board-certified sleep specialist who will determine if you are at risk for, or are experiencing any sleep disorders, and who will then create an individualized treatment plan based on your results and medical history

Get Treatment
How we determine what treatment is right for you

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

• Behavior Modification

Many sleep disorders can be treated by modifying sleep habits, improving sleep hygiene, losing weight, changes in frequency and intensity in exercise, breath work, reducing alcohol consumption, stopping smoking, and more.

• CPAP Machine or Equivalent

In cases where a Sleep Study reveals significant Sleep Apnea, a common sleep disorder, the typical treatment 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. 

• Medication

If your Sleep Study reveals a sleep disorder that is best treated by medication, Circle Medical providers can make an appropriate diagnosis and get access to necessary medications that can alleviate or relieve symptoms.

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, which may include cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I).

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 for a short period of time 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 25 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.

Do I need to book my appointment with a doctor (MD or DO), or can I book my appointment with any provider (PA-C, NP, etc)?

You do not need to book your initial appointment with a doctor. You can book your appointment with any provider that we have available. Our providers all work closely together to make sure that we are providing the same excellent standard of care to all patients regardless of which provider you book your appointment with.

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.
