MEDICAL TRAVEL ADMINISTRATION SERVICES
FOR SELF-FUNDED EMPLOYERS, INSURANCE COMPANIES & GOVERNMENTS
Turnkey services to manage patients who travel for care
Health Centers Plus® is a program for self-funded employers and insurance companies, offering them the ability to offer medical travel as a supplemental benefit to their employees/members. Our customized services can range from concierge services for treatments at designated centers of excellence to the implementation and management of a turnkey, full-service domestic or international medical travel program.
Centers of Excellence
Health Centers Plus offers a customized selection of domestic and/or international medical providers for surgeries and other planned procedures. Several of our providers are specialty facilities, delivering personalized and high quality care with high levels of expertise and efficiencies in their fields. The specialties include orthopedic, cancer, spine, major heart, Hep-C, and many more. Insurance companies can chose to use the program for their own Centers of Excellence.
Cost Savings and Cost Predictability
With our pre-negotiated bundled rates, not only are the costs more predictable, but Employers can pay up to 30-50% less than their current rates and generate savings of up to 6-10% on their overall healthcare spend.
Flexible Program Design
We help each client create a flexible program that works in concert with their needs. By selecting the procedures, facilities, locations, services, and other options, each client can create the optimal program to suit their needs.
Medical Second Opinions
Studies at leading medical centers have shown that in 88-90% of the cases reviewed for a second opinion, an alternate treatment or therapy was recommended and in some cases the diagnosis itself was incorrect. Our program can include a second opinion program to determine the proper diagnosis and prognosis of the patient, to identify if there is an alternative or less invasive medical procedure that can be performed, or to confirm the treatment plan before the patient receives treatment.
Member Engagement & Dashboards
To ensure adoption, members must be educated and engaged in the program. We provide a complete engagement platform, designed to inform your employees/members about their options, the savings available to the program, and how to benefit from them. Our client dashboard provides continuous and real-time feedback on the utilization and effectiveness of the program.
Full Program Coordination & Concierge Services
We understand that medical travel requires coordination and care. Our member care team and travel medical assistants are well-versed with the needs of a patient traveling for care. We provide a full range of services to manage the entire process, including the transfer of medical records, coordination of travel, transfer to after-care, and verification of billing.
Patented, HIPAA Compliant Platform
We use a proprietary, patented, HIPAA compliant technology platform to manage the entire medical travel process. This collaborative platform promotes well-coordinated patient management, medical document transfers, ancillary service management, and a lot more. It ensures data-privacy and patient confidentiality, while promoting patient confidence in the program.
