Brief Answer:
Sleep Apnea is most likely.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
It seems you are suffering from obstructive Sleep Apnea that is making you tired in the morning.
What really happens is that when you sleep in night and snore, then you don't get a comfortable and sound sleep, making you tired the whole day.
You should get an ENT evaluation done to see for any nasal polyps or adenoids that might be causing the snoring.
In case, on ENT evaluation, no cause is find, then Sleep Study is considered as the only best test to diagnose sleep apnea. In fact, your symptoms are classical of sleep apnea syndrome.
You should also get a cardiac evaluation and arterial blood gas analysis done.
If your sleep apnea is severe, you would require BIPAP in night time to prevent yourself from adverse effects of Sleep apnea syndrome particularly cardiac issues.
I hope it helps you.
If you have any further query, please ask me.
Stay healthy.

Brief Answer:
Yes you can get admitted.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX
Corporate mediclaims usually don't cover such OPD based procedure.
You can visit your doctor and discuss with him.
Also discuss with your mediclaim service provider before you get admitted.
I am attached to various corporate hospitals in XXXXXXX and as far as I know mediclaim service provider don't cover sleep study procedures.
If you have any further query, please ask me.
