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.”
