Lower-cost Service Options

We want to help our members make better-informed decisions about where they seek care, including sharing resources and options for more affordable treatment and health care services. With some of our health plans, members are responsible for covering a portion of the costs of their services, so referring them to more affordable options can help them save money on out-of-pocket costs.

We’d like to share some lower-cost referral options for emergency services and technical diagnostic imaging.

In addition, members who need certain outpatient surgical services may save money using an ambulatory surgical center in our network. These ambulatory surgical centers offer high-quality services often at a more affordable rate. Here are some of the services they offer:

  • ACL repair by scope
  • Bladder with scope
  • Carpal tunnel and carpal tunnel with scope
  • Cataract removal
  • Colonoscopy
  • Endoscopy sinus surgery
  • Esophagoscopy
  • Gall bladder removal
  • Hernia-inguinal, umbilical, lapro and ventral repair
  • Kidney stone removal
  • Knee scope with repair, with multiple components, and with multiple drilling, microfx
  • Lithotripsy
  • Nasal & sinus septoplasty
  • Shoulder scope and shoulder scope with repair
  • Sigmoidoscopy
  • Upper GI endoscopy
  • Urethra and bladder with scope
  • Urine tissue sample

Please speak to your patients—our members—about these options, or direct them to their primary care provider.
