Get the rest you really need
Sleep, migraines and headaches share a surprising link. Book a video consultation with a Board-Certified primary care provider to discuss your symptoms and receive treatment.
Waking up with a headache
Waking to use the bathroom multiple times a night
Sleep without dreams
Depending on caffeine in the morning to feel truly ‘awake’
Sleep paralysis or sleepwalking
Dozing off or feeling tired during the day despite a full night's rest (7-8 hours)
Once you select a provider, you will attend a 30-minute intake appointment via the secure Circle Medical app from any convenient location of your choosing, such as your own home. Your provider will assess your symptoms and medical history, and order a sleep study to gather data on your sleep.
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
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:
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.
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.
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.
† Circle Medical is able to offer low cost and high quality care from Primary Care Providers that are qualified to treat a wide range of conditions, and integrates your care into your overall health plan. Co-pay costs may range from covered, to $35, to not covered, and will depend on your individual insurance plan.

Current laws in the United States require a doctor’s prescription in order for a patient to participate in a sleep study.

You don’t have to return it! Your Sleep Study device is a disposable medical device that is capable of performing up to 10 separate nights of sleep analysis. Your provider will work with you to determine the number of records necessary for your initial analysis, and once completed, you can either retain or dispose of the device. If it is determined that you are suffering from Sleep Apnea, you will be able to keep the device so that you can perform a follow-up study to monitor the efficacy of your treatment.
Not at all. It is a small device that you can easily attach painlessly to the tip of your index finger. The companion smartphone app includes detailed, easy to follow instructions for use, and will send the recorded data back to Circle automatically.
No, the device will be sent to you, and will arrive in 2-4 business days following your provider’s recommendation for a Sleep Study. The device will automatically send recorded data back to Circle for evaluation.
Your sleep results will be reviewed by a board-certified sleep specialist, who will then work closely with your Circle Medical provider to create your personalized treatment plan.
Most people find it far more comfortable to sleep in the comfort of their own bed in their own home, where your sleep patterns will much more closely match your typical sleep cycle than they would when you sleep in a clinic that is new to you. The device you will receive will also allow you to perform multiple studies, and all at a small fraction of the typical cost of an in-clinic sleep study.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We also offer a self-pay option at a flat rate of $100 per appointment.
