Oventus Medical becomes ‘preferred supplier’ for VGM members

Monday, November 23, 2020

BRISBANE, Australia – Oventus Medical has signed a marketing agreement with VGM & Associates. Per the agreement, VGM has named Oventus Medical as a preferred supplier of oral appliance therapy and will promote the company’s “lab-in-lab” program to its 2,500-plus members with 7,000-plus locations. “The difficulties associated with CPAP therapy and optimum patient care are well understood,” said Scott Owen, senior vice president of contracting for VGM & Associates. “By working with Oventus, the introduction of a program that offers oral appliance therapy as alternative to CPAP enables our members to better support both their patients and referral sources, while strengthening their revenue base.” The agreement is initially for a one-year term, with an automatic annual renewal, unless a party elects not to renew 90 days prior to the end of that term. Oventus Medical expects to start the process of launching its LIL program to VGM members in January. It believes the agreement will make “a large contribution to growth” next year. Under Oventus Medical’s LIL program, dentists take scans of the mouths of patients within hybrid sleep facilities, which also offer DME, to fit them for oral devices.
