NASHVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sleep Nation, Inc., a national provider of continuous positive airway pressure equipment (CPAP), today announced a major expansion in its insurance coverage for patients. Being able to be reimbursed by more health plans expands the company's ability to provide valuable services to patients.
"As Sleep Nation grows through acquisitions and internal growth initiatives, gaining full access to these patients through managed care contracting is critical", said Richardson M. Roberts, CEO of Sleep Nation. "With many DME's projected to go out of business due to Medicare's competitive bidding program, patients run the risk of having difficulty finding a provider who is in-network with their insurance." Rich Roberts added, "Since our purchase of CPAP Care Club, LLC in May 2012, our Managed Care Department has added 50 new health insurance contracts providing access to an additional 40 million lives nationally."
"We have a lower cost method of delivery that is really easy for the patient to use. We take over the medical paperwork requirements that are required, file with the patient's insurance and deliver the product to their door," said Rich Roberts. "With these insurance relationships, Sleep Nation can service the patient as a participating provider, the patient has a company that engages in their respiratory therapy and the insurance carrier has a patient who is actively using their CPAP machine properly while lowering long term medical costs for patient care."
