Why You Need A Sleep Apnea Program
Do you need a turnkey sleep apnea program to get your staff back to work quickly?
CMS offers Sleep Express, a streamlined and cost effective sleep apnea program to get your drivers evaluated and back on the road in less than a week. Sleep Express is the fastest, most cost-efficient program available to become compliant with sleep apnea.
A Typical Scenario:
Your driver is given a DOT Physical Certificate for only 90 days because the Certified Medical Examiner suspects Sleep Apnea. Typically, scheduling your driver to be tested in a sleep lab can take several weeks. The night spent in the sleep lab costs $2,000 or more. Generally, it takes at least a week to schedule a follow-up visit with the Sleep Specialist. If sleep apnea is confirmed and therapy is prescribed, equipment is ordered and is typically expensive, costing around $1,000. Ensuring long-term compliance is not simple because the CPAP memory cards must be read by your Sleep Specialist during ‘regularly scheduled appointments’.

CMS reduces the hassle of the above scenario by solving three problems.
