Established in 1969, Advanzeon Solutions, Inc., (formerly Comprehensive Care Corp.) (“Advanzeon”, “we”, “Parent”, or the “Company”), through its wholly-owned subsidiary Pharmacy Value Management Solutions, Inc., (“PVMS”) and its wholly-owned subsidiaries during 2015, and partly in 2016, provided managed care services by acting as the administrator for certain administrative service agreements in the behavioral health and substance abuse fields. We primarily offered these services to commercial, Medicare, Medicaid, Children's Health Insurance Program (“CHIP”) health plans, as well as self-insured companies. Our managed care operations consisted solely of servicing administrative service agreements. Starting in July of 2015, we implemented our comprehensive sleep apnea program, called “SleepMaster Solutions” ™. SleepMaster Solutions (“SMS”) utilizes an administrative system for the convenient identification/testing and therapy of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (“OSA”). We partnered with a national health care provider by initiating a sleep apnea wellness program whereby we screened, tested and when needed, offered a treatment programs for treating this disorder. We also contracted with a union to treat its driver members. Beginning in 2017, our only business was our SMS sleep apnea program.
In 2014, the Department of Transportation (“DOT”) overhauled its system such that regulations now require commercial drivers, that is drivers with a commercial driver's license (‘CDL”) must be specifically examined with respect to whether or not they have a respiratory dysfunction which is defined to include Obstructive Sleep Apnea (“OSA”). OSA is a breathing disorder that causes the airway in a person's throat to close during sleep for ten seconds or more. This loss of breathing function can occur as many as 400 times during the night, and those who have the disorder wake up multiple times, which can lead to exhaustion during the day. Although OSA is diagnosed across a wide demographic, there are certain factors that increase the risk of a person developing this disorder:
The troubling aspect of OSA as it relates to CDL drivers is that it causes intense fatigue often causing a driver to struggle with focusing and remaining alert while driving. Sleep apnea is one of the major contributing factors in truck accidents.
