GEM SLEEP Expands Payment Options with Health Plan Coverage to Provide Access to Millions Needing Sleep Apnea Care

MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Gem Specialty Health, Inc. (GEM HEALTH), a nationwide digital specialty care clinic, announced today that its virtual sleep apnea clinic, GEM SLEEP is now accepting insurance from multiple health plans and payers supporting over 25 million individuals.

GEM SLEEP is making it easier to get care for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) by streamlining the entire process into a single virtual experience. With this addition of insurance coverage, people now have more options of how to pay for their sleep apnea care.

Before GEM SLEEP, for someone to use their insurance to get care for sleep apnea, they’d have to navigate a difficult and lengthy process that typically included months long waits, overnight stays in sleep labs, and calling DME suppliers to fill their prescription. GEM SLEEP brings that entire process online, and can typically get someone from starting testing to on treatment in less than 3 weeks. GEM also offers concierge support throughout the process. Individuals with select health plans now have the GEM SLEEP clinic as a provider in their network. GEM is continuing to contract with additional health plans to expand coverage.

“In my experience, patients with sleep apnea often must choose between waiting months to see an in-network provider, or go, without coverage, to an online retailer without comprehensive clinical services. When we started GEM SLEEP, we wanted to make getting care for sleep apnea a convenient and enjoyable experience, but we also wanted to provide as broad of access as possible by partnering with health plans. GEM SLEEP patients love that they can get the same quality of an in-person clinic in an online, customized and supportive experience. We are delighted to see that health plans have also recognized the value of GEM SLEEP, and are eager to add us to their network of providers.” said Dr. Mike Howell, Chief Medical Officer of GEM HEALTH.

GEM SLEEP’s virtual clinic operates nationwide and will continue adding health plan coverage for its services.
