The Alliance is rolling out surgeries and tests with known upfront costs to our employer population of more than 85,000 people.
Employers and patients expect cost information about health care services so they can make informed decisions about health care choices before scheduling appointments. In efforts to meet employer expectations, these providers are offering packaged services with known upfront costs to be transparent to the end consumer and employer. Packaged services for surgeries typically include all facility, surgeon, and other service charges incurred during the surgical procedure and follow up visits after the procedure.
So far we have secured agreements with three provider organizations and have more in the works to offer services such as knee replacements, hip replacements, shoulder surgery, etc.
- NOVO Health
- Twin Cities Orthopedic
- Marshfield Clinic
