Elective procedures account for a substantial percentage of the
dollars spent on healthcare today. Costs for these procedures
vary immensely, which means higher medical claim spend for
self-funded plans and high out-of-pocket costs for members.
MyDecision™ by HealthSmart provides the answer. Leveraging our HealthSmart
Preferred PPO Network, we have developed a high-quality, lower cost network of
providers for bundled, all-inclusive procedures.
How much savings? HealthSmart’s comprehensive bundled payment solution provides 30 to 40 percent incremental savings for elective procedures over what traditional PPO networks offer. Our clients have seen reductions of 4 to 7
percent on their overall medical claim spend. No surprise billing, lower claims costs and zero out-of-pocket for members.
How it works:
- We contract directly with high quality providers at aggressively priced bundled rates
- Our clinical team provides integrated utilization management to determine medical necessity
- Our real-time concierge outreach redirects members to the right providers that they can select
- We pay the providers and distribute savings to the members and the plan
The plan’s success is a combination of clinical oversight and member outreach. In 2017, Member Advocates delivered a 92 percent redirection success rate.
Types of covered services include orthopedic, general surgery, spinal and neurological, women's health, advanced imaging, endoscopic procedures and more.
