DALLAS, Aug. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Surgery Center Network (SCN), the most comprehensive network of ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) in the U.S., announces it has become a sponsor of the Association for Corporate Health-Risk Management (ACHRM), an employer-exclusive community in the Philadelphia, Baltimore, New Jersey and Washington, D.C. marketplaces which provides a forum for collaboration with peers, education, disruption technologies and solutions, and new methods and techniques to reduce a company's healthcare costs and improve employee well-being and productivity.
SCN, which launched in March, highlights and connects ASCs to the general public, insurance plans and administrators, and group health and workers' compensation employers.
The sponsorship of ACHRM will provide SCN with the opportunity to work more closely with forward-thinking, self-funded employers exploring creative ways to control their healthcare spend while providing savings to their employees.
"Our work with ACHRM sets the stage for us to have more one-on-one dialogues about the SCN model and initiate pilot programs with these employers," said Jeff Blankinship, President of SCN. "They understand the need for different and alternative options for managing their benefit plans. We believe a partnership with SCN will help them to achieve their objectives of driving down costs by providing employees with benefit incentives such as reduced or eliminated coinsurance and deductibles and thus being able to reduce the premiums their employees need to pay to participate in the plans. We look forward to working with these employers and supporting the efforts of ACHRM."
