Transcarent announced a new collaboration with Hospital for Special Surgery that will allow employees of self-insured employers and their families access to the hospital’s orthopedic and musculoskeletal specialists.
Through the collaboration, employees of self-insured employers and their families will have limited or no out-of-pocket responsibilities, with Transcarent handling all member referrals and covering the cost of certain orthopedic surgeries, along with travel coordination and associated costs when necessary, according to a company press release.
“Through this important collaboration, [Hospital for Special Surgery] HSS and Transcarent will help employers reduce health care costs and improve the care experience for their employees,” Louis A. Shapiro, president and CEO of HSS, said in the release. “It is a new opportunity for HSS to apply the world’s largest concentration of orthopedic expertise to enable people, businesses and communities to realize their potential.”
The release noted Transcarent provides personalized health and care support through dedicated health guides for most common and challenging needs, including urgent care, lower-cost medications, personalized behavioral health, care at home, cancer treatment and expert second opinions.
“Leading employers remain dissatisfied with the access to, quality of and cost of our health care system, especially the surgery experience for their employees and their families,” Glen Tullman, CEO of Transcarent, said in the release. “HSS has long been the acknowledged industry leader in orthopedic care, and we are excited to collaborate with them to bring the Transcarent experience with surgery care to people across the nation who need high quality, affordable care.”
