Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) is pleased to announce that Arkansas Blue Cross Blue Shield and its affiliates will accept ACHC Sleep Accreditation for freestanding sleep laboratories in Arkansas. This approval will allow ACHC-accredited sleep laboratories in Arkansas access to the BCBS network.

Founded in 1948, Arkansas Blue Cross Blue Shield, an Independent Licensee of the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, is the largest health insurer in Arkansas, serving seven designated geographic areas of the state. Arkansas Blue Cross is a not-for-profit mutual insurance company owned by its policyholders.

“ACHC is committed to offering a Sleep Accreditation program that facilitates the highest-quality patient care through a consultative approach that assesses sleep providers based on industry-specific quality standards,” said ACHC Director of DMEPOS, Pharmacy, and Sleep Timothy Safley, MBA, RRT, RCP. “We are proud to gain acceptance by Arkansas Blue Cross Blue Shield and believe the decision will provide sleep centers with the option to choose the accreditation organization that best fits the individual needs of sleep centers and their patients.”

ACHC offers a patient-focused approach to Sleep Accreditation with principles that were developed with direct input from industry professionals to ensure relevant and realistic standards. The organization’s consultative approach to accreditation is designed to facilitate a higher quality of patient care while enhancing business efficiencies. In order to remain flexible to the needs of providers, ACHC’s Sleep Accreditation program offers standards for Sleep Labs/Centers (SLCs) and stand-alone Home Sleep Testing (HST) services.

ACHC is a nonprofit accreditation organization that has stood as a symbol of quality and excellence since 1986. The organization has CMS deeming authority for Home Health, Hospice, and DMEPOS and a Quality Management System that is certified to ISO 9001:2008. ACHC is the provider’s choice for accreditation because of its personal Account Advisors, relevant and realistic standards, competitive pricing, and a friendly, consultative approach to accreditation. Accreditation by ACHC reflects an organization’s dedication and commitment to meeting standards that facilitate a higher level of performance and patient care.
