President Dr. Timothy I. Morgenthaler provides insight in a recent Sleep Review article regarding the AASM's Seniors Sleep effort and the importance of including a sleep apnea screening in the initial Welcome to Medicare physician visit. The Seniors Sleep bill (H.R. 4695) was introduced on May 21 and the bill is sponsored by Reps. Michael Burgess (R-TX), Bobby Rush (D-IL) and Erik Paulsen (R-MN). In the article, Dr. Morgenthaler encouraged sleep providers and other groups who would like to help support this important initiative to join the AASM’s Seniors Sleep Campaign.
