Bundled Services in Centers of Excellence - Comprehensive Care with One Fixed Cost

Bundled services are the next generation of healthcare reimbursement for tailored patient care. They help you provide access to advanced, comprehensive care with no hidden costs or surprise fees. 

With bundled services from The Christ Hospital Health Network, coverage includes the entire continuum of care from pre-visit consultations to post visit follow-up. You pay a fixed amount, which is determined in advance, based on the anticipated costs for different episodes of care or services. The cost can include physician visits, testing, procedures, hospital stays, recovery time and follow-up like rehabilitation and post-procedure physician visits, depending on the options you choose to include.

Bundled services offer many advantages, including:

  • Access to Nurse Navigators with decades of experience. Your employees make one phone call and our team takes care of everything else.

  • Fixed costs for your company for a two to three-year period for many commonly needed tests and procedures. Once we've laid out the specifics of your plan, the cost of services remains the same for the duration of the contract.

  • Reduced healthcare bills with significant savings for you and your employees 

  • Simplified billing processes

  • Streamlined administrative processes

Fixed-cost packages can be customized according to your needs and budget. Options may include:

  • Anesthesiology

  • Diagnostic testing

  • Durable medical equipment as needed

  • Radiology

  • Pathology services

  • Pharmacy

  • Rehabilitation

  • Sixty-day warranty

  • Specialist consultations

  • Surgical procedure

Our care teams include top performing specialists who were selected based on their area of expertise, case volume and clinical outcomes. Your employees receive access to a nurse navigator who serves as a kind of "clinical concierge" to guide them through the process to answer questions, select a physician, schedule and follow-up for up to a year after their procedure. 

With our help, educating your staff is easy. We work with you to determine how to best communicate the details and advantages of the bundled service package. Whether it's a series of company-wide emails, informational postcards and brochures, on-site visits or another form of communication — we give you the tools you need to inform your company of the benefits of their bundled services package.
