Just in case you need the VA disagnostic code: §4.97 - Schedule of ratings—respiratory system

6847   Sleep Apnea Syndromes (Obstructive, Central, Mixed):  
Chronic respiratory failure with carbon dioxide retention or cor pulmonale, or; requires tracheostomy 100
Requires use of breathing assistance device such as continuous airway pressure (CPAP) machine 50
Persistent day-time hypersomnolence 30
Asymptomatic but with documented sleep disorder breathing 0

International Classification of Disease (ICD) are often used to diagnosis and billing.

Systemized Nomenclature of Medicine - Clinical Terms (SNOMED-CT) tie to medical terms used with electronic health records. I am not 100% certain, but I think some providers call them SCT for short.
