Since benefit budgets are tight, keeping claims costs in check is a top priority. And a big part of your claims costs is driven by major surgical procedures – knee and hip replacements, spinal fusions and heart procedures. BridgeHealth can help keep your benefit budget in check. It’s time to think outside the box when it comes to cost-containment solutions.
Government & Education Groups
Government and education groups face unique challenges. You provide rich employee benefits, but you’re also under continuous scrutiny to be fiscally responsible. The BridgeHealth Surgery Benefit Program can help. When employees consider cost, quality, and even medical necessity, surgery is often not the only answer. When plan members start to engage, your group will save.
Taft Hartley & Union Plans
BridgeHealth gives your members access to the top surgical providers in the nation. We know your budget is tight, but we believe your plan members still deserve top-notch surgical benefits at no additional cost. If plan members have information on cost, quality, and even medical necessity, they will make better decisions. Sometimes, surgery is not the only answer. But when members need surgery, the BridgeHealth Surgery Benefit Program gives them access to top-rated surgical facilities across the nation. Quality matters, and your members deserve the best.

Charlotte, BridgeHealth member
Mike Larsen, Executive Director, Municipalities, Colleges, Schools Insurance Group
In the time since the Health and Welfare Board of Trustees hired BridgeHealth, our Health and Welfare Plan has realized remarkable savings! By using BridgeHealth for our surgical procedures, our Plan has experienced $423,286 in savings since 2013. As Chairman of the Plan, I will continue my efforts in finding the best quality care available in the market with added value for our Plan Members and family. I think we’ve done that with BridgeHealth.
-Chairman, Alaska Teamster-Employer Welfare Trust
This last year we saved over $1.2 million, and more than 75% of our members used the program for their covered surgeries. BridgeHealth truly white gloves members through the process, schedules everything, and arranges a second opinion on request, so members can learn whether an alternative treatment option may help their condition.

I would definitely recommend BridgeHealth to a friend.”

My Care Coordinator was great! He answered all my questions, and he didn’t get frustrated when I asked the same questions over and over. He set everything up and made sure it was all in order before I left. BridgeHealth is an amazing service. I am truly grateful and feel blessed that everything has been taken care of. Thank you.
-BridgeHealth Plan Member
I contacted BridgeHealth because I was excited about going to a highly rated medical facility. My Care Coordinator went above and beyond to assist me throughout the process. He was very polite to us, and he carried through on his plans each step of the way. He was professional, courteous, and patient! Everything fell into place before the surgery, and all has gone well since then.
