At-home Sleep Study and Screening

Participating in an at-home sleep study has never been easier. The steps are as follows:
  • You will be sent a small WESPER sleep monitoring device (two small, soft fabric patches, and a wrist mounted pulse and blood oxygen monitor)

  • 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 2-3 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 are also available for oral appliances 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.

Get tested for Sleep Apnea.

Who gets Sleep Apnea?

Sleep Apnea is very common, and affects nearly 1 billion people across the world each year. In the US, 25-30% of men, and 9-17% of women are estimated to have obstructive Sleep Apnea. While men are more likely to be affected than women, it can be much more common during and after pregnancy, and as we age. Other significant factors that contribute to Sleep Apnea include:

  • Family history

  • Obesity

  • Alcohol use

  • Smoking

What are the symptoms of Sleep Apnea?

Obstructive Sleep Apnea occurs when your airways become blocked during sleep. Typical symptoms include being tired during the day (despite adequate hours of rest), trouble staying asleep at night, headaches or dry mouth in the morning, and excessive or loud snoring that includes moments of gasping for air (these are usually observed by sleeping partners).  

It is important to note that not all of these symptoms may present in a person who is experiencing Sleep Apnea. Sleep Apnea often affects people who are not obese, for example. Additionally, up to 20% of patients who have Sleep Apnea do NOT snore. (Snoring in and of itself is not always associated with Sleep Apnea.) 

Why is it important to diagnose and treat?

Left undiagnosed or untreated, Sleep Apnea can cause serious health complications for your or your loved one. Not only does it disrupt the quality of sleep for you or your sleep partner, untreated it could lead to other significant issues, including:

  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)

  • Cardiomyopathy (enlargement of the muscle tissue of the heart)

  • Atrial fibrillation (irregular heartbeat) 

  • Type-II diabetes

  • Heart disease

  • Heart failure 

  • Stroke

My provider was extremely nice and understanding, and I need that after the terrible care I’ve gotten in my tiny town.

Kay

The convenience is amazing. I can always find an appointment with the same person at a time that works best for my schedule. Also, I love the ability to text questions whenever I want. 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.

Seamus

Providers make me feel seen, heard, and validated in my adversities and experience. The accessibility is huge and a life saver. It’s so hard to have the courage to seek help for something you believe you struggle with but have been dismissed and shot down before when you have tried to seek out help in the past. Having the option to be assessed virtually saved my life and has completely changed me for the better.

Autumn

The experience is a lot easier and quicker for me compared to driving to a doctors office and waiting and then talking to a doctor for a short amount of time.

Rosemary

The provider I spoke with was very knowledgeable and listened to me. She explained things well and made me comfortable.

My provider has been an amazingly attentive, caring, and informative professional. The accessibility that this group provides is helping me take control of my health.

Circle Medical ADHD treatment has changed my life for the better in so many ways. I love the ease of not having to go to a Doctors office. I travel for work and my travels are sporadic so being able to take a video/zoom appointment wherever I am at is paramount. I never need to worry about when my appointment is as long as I have cell service. It's just incredible. Plus I ABSOLUTELY love my provider. He is just awesome. I could go on and on about him.

My experience with Circle Medical has been life changing. Their staff and my primary care physician have been beyond amazing. I would recommend Circle Medical to anyone who has a need for any services they provide. I simply cannot say enough good things on their behalf.

Eric

I had struggled to find a primary care provider near where I live as I live in a very rural area and I found this via Google search and could not be happier with the service I have received since. Appointments available next day, easy app to use and friendly staff. Highly recommend!!

Regina

The providers are very empathetic and I always feel comfortable discussing my issues.

Dira

As far as I’m concerned, this is the future of healthcare. I’ve transitioned all of my primary care to Circle Medical as well as my ADHD management. I’m amazed at the weekend and off-hour options, which are a lifesaver for a busy professional like myself. I recommend this service to anyone who is looking to get a PCP or evaluated for ADHD. Your customer service is top-notch and I’ve never had an issue with insurance or my prescriptions. I’m so glad I found your company!

Frequently Asked Questions

Insomnia care

If I think I have Sleep Apnea, can I sign up for a Sleep Study on my own?

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

If I know I have Sleep Apnea, can I just purchase a CPAP device?

Current laws in the United States require a doctor’s prescription in order to obtain a CPAP device.

How do I return the device after my Sleep Study is completed?

You will be sent a pre-paid, pre-addressed envelope along with the device. Once you have completed your at-home sleep study, simply place the device in the provided envelope and put it in the mail. That's it!

Is the device uncomfortable or hard to use?

Not at all. It is a small device that you can easily attach painlessly. The companion smartphone app includes detailed, easy to follow instructions for use, and will send the recorded data back to Circle automatically.

Do I have to pick up, or drop off, my device at a Circle Medical location?

No, the device will be sent to you, and will arrive in 7-10 business days following your provider’s recommendation for a Sleep Study. The device will automatically send recorded data back to Circle for evaluation. You will be sent a pre-paid, pre-addressed envelope along with the device. Once you have completed your at-home sleep study, simply place the device in the provided envelope and put it in the mail. That's it!  

Who reviews my sleep study results?

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.

What are the benefits of an at home sleep study vs a regular sleep study at a clinic?

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.

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.

What are the types of sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder where your breathing stops and starts throughout the night. It can be classified into three different types, including:

Obstructive  

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is the most common type of sleep apnea. It happens when the muscles in your throat relax during sleep This causes blockage in your airways. This can lead to sleep interruptions and awakenings throughout the night that impact your overall sleep quality. You may not even be aware of these awakenings.

Central  

Central Sleep Apnea (CSA) happens when your brain fails to signal breathing muscles. This leads to periods during the night where breathing stops and starts.

Positional  

Positional sleep apnea occurs when a person's breathing difficulties during sleep worsens when they are in certain positions, such as lying on their back (supine position), and may improve when they sleep in other positions, such as on their side (lateral position).

How to get a diagnosis online

In previous years, you would have to go to an in-person sleep clinic to diagnose sleep apnea. You would sleep overnight at the clinic for a sleep study. This allowed a sleep specialist to monitor your sleep patterns and diagnose your sleep disorder. Fortunately, technology has advanced to allow us to conduct sleep studies at home. After connecting with an online healthcare provider like Circle Medical, you can get an at-home sleep study sent to your house. You’ll receive a simple device that monitors your sleep. This data is sent directly to your provider and you can get your diagnosis without having to leave your home. Once diagnosed with sleep apnea, your healthcare provider can determine an appropriate treatment plan.

Is sleep apnea genetic or hereditary?

Sleep apnea can be caused by a variety of factors, and evidence suggests that there may also be a genetic or hereditary link. If you have sleep apnea in your family history, your risk for developing the condition may be higher. However, environmental and lifestyle factors also are attributed to sleep apnea. Obesity, alcohol consumption, and smoking can all increase the risk of sleep apnea.

Can you have sleep apnea without snoring?

Snoring is one of the primary symptoms associated with sleep apnea. However, it’s not a guaranteed telltale sign. Some people may snore and not have sleep apnea. Likewise, some people with sleep apnea may not have snoring as a symptom. Sleep apnea is characterized by breathing interruptions during sleep, which may simply cause someone to wake frequently or have trouble sleeping. For instance, if someone always wakes up feeling tired or fatigued, but they don’t snore, it’s possible they may have sleep apnea.
