Austin, Texas-based EmployerDirect, a company that helps large self-insured employers improve employee planned medical procedures, now offers SurgeryPlus, a supplemental healthcare benefit that reduces costs of planned medical procedures by 30 to 50 percent through bundled case rates.

SurgeryPlus is implemented by a personalized care coordinator team and negotiates all costs before surgery. Surgeons within the SurgeryPlus Network are required to be board certified and meet strict criteria.

SurgeryPlus offers bundled case rates for planned medical procedures by pre-negotiating and consolidating all costs before surgery. Covered procedures are often elective and include orthopedic, spine, cardiovascular, bariatric, general surgery, carpel tunnel and minor outpatient procedures.

Procedures are performed at specialty hospitals or surgery centers that meet high criteria.
