DALLAS, April 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Reliant Rehabilitation is expanding its member healthcare coverage in 2019 by partnering with Employer Direct Healthcare to offer employees SurgeryPlus, a supplemental benefit for non-emergent surgeries providing high quality care, a better experience, and lower costs.
"SurgeryPlus allows us to help reduce costs for our employees at a time when they need it most," said Reliant Rehabilitation Chief Executive Officer Chris Bird.
Through SurgeryPlus, over 2,200 of Reliant's valued team members and covered dependents will have access to an elite, high-performance Surgeons of Excellence network that includes top quality, 100 percent board-certified providers. Providers in the SurgeryPlus network have been screened rigorously, significantly reducing the risk of surgical complications.
John Zutter, CEO of Employer Direct Healthcare said, "We are very excited to partner with Reliant and offer high quality care to its members, just as they provide quality care to their patients. With over 800 therapy sites across the United States, we are confident our national, elite provider network will provide the high-quality care the members of Reliant deserve."
SurgeryPlus will create substantial savings for both Reliant and its members through SurgeryPlus' pre-negotiated and discounted bundled rates with providers. By packaging surgical expenses into one simple bundled rate, SurgeryPlus reduces members' financial stress and burden from unexpected medical bills. Reliant will offer financial incentives, dependent on plan type, to members who utilize their new surgical benefit, potentially saving members thousands of dollars.
With SurgeryPlus, members are provided with access to dedicated Care Advocates, who educate members on their SurgeryPlus benefit and simplify the medical experience. Care Advocates manage all scheduling, logistics and the transfer of medical records for a white-glove service from start to finish.
