DALLAS, March 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Employer Direct Healthcare is excited to announce SurgeryPlus® is now available to Envision Healthcare members. Beginning January 1, 2021, Envision Healthcare began offering Employer Direct Healthcare's SurgeryPlus® benefit, a supplemental benefit providing surgical concierge services with a focus on quality care, lower costs, and a better member experience.
The approximately 32,000 members participating in Envision Healthcare's health plan will have access to the SurgeryPlus® benefit's full-service health care concierge for over 1,400 non-emergent procedures. When they choose to utilize the SurgeryPlus® benefit, members will be paired with their own dedicated Care Advocate. Their Care Advocate will assist them with everything from their selection of a surgeon, to scheduling appointments, transferring medical records, and even arranging travel, removing the stress and confusion often associated with planning for medical care.
As an added benefit, when participants elect to use a participating surgeon through the SurgeryPlus® benefit, Envision Healthcare will waive member deductible and/or coinsurance obligations.
Envision Healthcare's first priority is caring for patients. Envision Healthcare works alongside clinicians, payors, hospitals, and health systems in the quest to create healthier communities.
