Acrometis and PriceMDs Partner to Bring Surgery Cost Containment to Market
MALVERN, Pa.-(BUSINESS WIRE) - April 10, 2018 06:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time - Acrometis is pleased to announce their partnership with PriceMDs as they enter the workers' compensation space with their Surgery Cost Containment product. The partnership will allow workers' compensation payers and third-party administrators to significantly reduce surgical costs by utilizing a vast directory of surgeons and surgical centers to perform procedures at a pre-determined bundled rate.
The National Directory of Ambulatory Surgery Centers comprises over 1,000 establishments, 10,000 surgeons and 100 outpatient surgical procedures for workers' comp. The directory accepts an all-inclusive bundled rate including pre-operative visits, professional, facility, implant, imaging and pharmacy fees. The result is that payers receive a deep discount on common workers' compensation elective surgical procedures.
"PriceMDs is excited to partner with Acrometis, bringing cost efficient bundled pricing to the worker's comp space," said Dr. Marc Grossman, Founder and CEO of PriceMDs.
Acrometis and PriceMDs apply the negotiated bundled rate to associated bills, and payers have a transparent view of exactly how much value the rate is providing.
