Health insurer to open sleep store
PITTSBURGH – Highmark in December plans to open a retail location in Homestead, Pa., to address sleeplessness and sleep apnea. REMWorks Sleep Store will offer CPAP machines and mask fittings as well as over-the-counter solutions for non-medical sleep issues. "We saw a market demand that was not being met, and that's what led to the development of the sleep store concept," said Paul Puopolo, VP of business innovation and development at Highmark. REMWorks will accept most regional and national insurance carriers for clinical services.
