CLINTON, N.Y. – Upstate HomeCare has announced a strategic partnership with HealthSqyre, a Denver-based online CPAP marketplace.

Per the partnership, Upstate HomeCare is the exclusive provider for CPAP devices, supplies and accessories on HealthSqyre for New York state.

“This partnership allows Upstate HomeCare to expand its offering of its CPAP supply services across the globe using HealthSqyre’s online platform,” Upstate HomeCare stated in a press release.

HealthSqyre allows customers to buy their supplies using insurance or cash—an option that no other online marketplace offers, according to Upstate HomeCare.

What’s more, the online marketplace allows customers to compare product pricing using their insurance, with real-time transparency of their deductibles, co-insurances rates and out-of-pocket maximums, so they can make informed buying decisions, the provider says.

“As more high-deductible plans become commonplace, it only makes sense that people will become more educated and look for ways to make those dollars go further,” said Gregory LoPresti, senior vice president and CEO of Upstate HomeCare.

Upstate HomeCare expects e-commerce to become a bigger part of their sales and the HealthSqyre partnership positions the provider to leverage that growth.

“Healthcare e-commerce is only going to become larger,” LoPresti said. “Upstate is committed to bringing customers not only the products they want but in the way they want them delivered.”

Upstate HomeCare is based in Clinton, N.Y., with physical locations in Utica, Syracuse, Rochester, Canadaigua, Buffalo and Albany. It employs 160 people.
