ORLANDO, Fla. - Apria may prefer to not do business with Gentiva’s managed care network, CareCentrix, but Rotech is more than happy to take the referrals.

Barely a month after Apria parted ways with Gentiva and waved good-bye to millions of dollars in business, Rotech signed on as a CareCentrix preferred provider. Rotech CEO Philip Carter said the deal could generate $25 million annually.

Under the contract, Rotech will serve as a primary preferred provider of respiratory therapy and DME in 23 states, and as a shared preferred provider in 10 states.

Rotech also signed a three-year primary preferred provider to provide CareCentrix patients in 48 states with CPAP.

CareCentrix homecare services - including traditional home nursing, chronic and acute infusion therapies, and durable medical and respiratory equipment and services - are delivered by a combination of Gentiva's own branch operations and a national network of third party provider locations that will now include Rotech's operating centers.
