Healthy sleep could create healthy opportunity

Sleep apnea testing is on the rise and insurance approval may be in decline...

"...Some insurers, including WellPoint, are changing the way they pay for sleep testing to curb the costs. Many now require a special pre-authorization. They also ask the doctor whether a patient qualifies for a home sleep test instead of one at the lab. Those changes are now widespread among Massachusetts insurers and are having an effect on the sleep industry in the state..." - excerpt from npr.org article

As insurance coverage falters, you may find greater opportunities for healthy sleep solutions through other bedding and sleep aid products. Sleep apnea is a serious health issue, and for some, there are no other solutions but CPAP machines and other medical treatments.

But if insurance companies make these treatments more difficult to obtain, creative health specialists may turn to other bedding products to help relieve some sleep disorders. New materials, new bed designs and new ideas could yield new opportunities for you.

You never know where your next opportunity may come from. To get ahead of the game, you need flexibility in your business planning and your manufacturing equipment.
