Recently Medicare and private insurances have embraced portable monitoring as a diagnostic alternative to PSG. In doing so, they have put forth guidelines and requirements for various diagnostic levels. The Embletta X100 is a Level II system - capable of monitoring up to 12 channels of data including EEG. Because of its versitile design, it can also be set up as an easy-to-use Level III system. Many other home study devices do not fit the requirements for Level II or III and therefore may be denied coverage by many insurance carriers.
