Sleep Apnea Program
After you visit Certified Medical Examiner and it is termined that you may have sleep apnea, contact is made with Sleep Masters Solutions. Once the original contact is made with Sleep Masters Solutions, the process then begins.
After calling Sleep Master Solutions, a prescription is generated for you to receive a “Home Sleep Test”.
The process is done over the phone, in the privacy of your home, with no more appointments! This way the process moves along much faster.
The certified medical examiner should have given you a temporary 90-day medical card after your exam.
If this was the case log in the expiration date, as this is very important as it really can take up to, 90 days to get through the sleep apnea portion of the Department of Transportation (DOT) exam.
At Sleep Masters Solutions we always tell the drivers: TEST WITHIN THE FIRST WEEK OR TWO OF YOUR EXAM!
This is really the only way you can be sure your medical card won’t expire.
Sleep Master Solutions is here to help you every step of the way.
Once the referral is sent either by the CME or by the driver Sleep Master Solutions has a prescription generated then Sleep Master Solutions will then call you to ship you your HST. The preferable way to expedite this process is to have the CME send the referral to Sleep Masters Solutions to immediately begin the process.
Once the prescription is sent you will use the test for 2 nights, we will have it picked up at your door and a DOT CME will do the “reading” or the “scoring” of your test. If you scored a negative, you simply go back to your CME and renew your medical card.
However, if you are positive, you will be required to have treatment for your Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), which will have you utilizing a Continues Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machine.
You then must use the CPAP machine for 30 days to be “in compliance” with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to be eligible to renew your medical card for the full term. The first 30 days is testing and the remaining 60 days will be needed for treatment, if needed.
