Advanzeon Solutions Inc’s wholly owned subsidiary, Pharmacy Value Management Solutions Inc (PVMS), has entered into an agreement with CPAP Supply USA LLC. Advanzeon provides behavioral health, wellness, pharmacy management services, and sleep apnea programs, to employers, Taft-Hartley health and welfare funds, and managed care companies.

Among other things, the Agreement provides for “most-favored nation pricing,” market protection, and complete, full-line product support. It’s effective immediately and marketing programs have already been put in place for implementation.

Mark Heidt, Advanzeon Solutions president, says in a release: “The sleep apnea market is one of the fastest growing markets in healthcare today. Globally, sleep apnea diagnostic and therapeutic devices are projected to grow to nearly $6.5 billion by 2019 due to an increase in home sleep tests and advancements in CPAP machines. In this country alone, while diagnostics lag behind reality, 17% of men and 9% of women are diagnosed with sleep apnea. We, at Advanzeon, have a particular interest in how it affects a large segment of our market–the Teamsters; and the men and women who drive long hours in large commercial vehicles. Forty-six percent (46%) of commercial drivers are believed to suffer from sleep apnea….We are also pleased to announce that in addition to being able to supply our members with the right equipment and services at the right price, we have commenced assembling a national network of Department of Transportation certified medical examiners. This program was started immediately following our entering into an agreement with Dr Jeff Liva. This program is progressing nicely.”
