Cost of Visiting Sleep Clinic in Poland?

Hello....I'm studying in £ódź. At the moment I'm visiting family back in the states, and going back to £ódź in August. I have no health care coverage whatsoever. Pretty sure I have sleep apnea, "bezdech senny". It looks like it's going to be crazy expensive to get tested for this in the U.S., let alone treatment, so I'm wondering if anyone has any idea what lab tests and treatment in Poland when you're paying 100% out of pocket? And the cost of CPAP or APAP if I end up needing those? I emailed mfzaar.pl to ask if they could help me, but thought I'd ask here in case anyone knew.

Even a rough estimate on being diagnosed and tested with anything else would be helpful, I have no idea what the costs are over there. It seemed like in general it would be more affordable, but I can't seem to find any information on it, and haven't met anyone who knew.

Thanks!

Foreigners undergoing education in Poland may join, on an optional basis, the public health insurance plan operated by the National Health Fund. All you need to do is file a written application with the National Health Fund.

But waiting time for specialist treatment is so long, that many people choose private health care providers..

Why not try one of the low-cost gadgets while you're saving up for testing and, if necessary, a cpap machine>?
