SleepQuest Signs National Contract With Aetna

Relationship increases access to testing for sleep-related illnesses

SAN CARLOS, Calif., June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- SleepQuest, a California-based provider of in-home sleep testing and Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) treatment, recently signed a contract with Aetna, one of the nation's largest healthcare benefit providers. As a national contract provider with Aetna, SleepQuest will now be able to serve more patients with sleep-related illnesses such as Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) who are in need of sleep testing services and CPAP treatment.

"This marks a momentous step forward for the recognition of in-home sleep testing as an effective, cost-efficient means of diagnosing sleep-related illnesses," said Robert Koenigsberg, President of SleepQuest. "Aetna has taken a national leadership position in increasing access for diagnosing sleep-related illnesses like Sleep Apnea. It is our hope that if these conditions are diagnosed sooner, patients will receive treatment which could improve their quality of life. SleepQuest is very excited to be in a position where we can reach out to more physicians and patients to help fight these debilitating disorders."

As a national provider of sleep apnea testing and therapy services, SleepQuest will now be part of Aetna's participating network of healthcare providers.

"Thousands of people across the country aren't being tested or treated because of the cost and inconvenience of overnight lab testing," said Lori Schulman, SleepQuest's Director of Contracting. "As one of the first national insurers to provide increased access to in-home testing, Aetna is ahead of the curve."

In addition to home sleep testing, SleepQuest provides initial screening to assure that ambulatory testing is appropriate for each patient. SleepQuest also provides comprehensive education and ongoing CPAP therapy which assures patient compliance and improved health.

By working with Aetna on a national basis, SleepQuest continues to demonstrate its dedication to patients in need of in-home sleep testing services. "Not only can we now reach more of those suffering from these illnesses," said Koenigsberg, "but if we're successful, other insurers will surely replicate the model Aetna has provided. This could help even more people who are currently undiagnosed."
