Musculoskeletal procedures—namely those dealing with knees, hips, shoulders, and spine—are frequent and costly. So we are doing something about them. Our innovative preauthorization program is designed to guide the right surgery for each patient.
Our musculoskeletal preauthorization program is supported by a team of doctors who can provide an expert-level review for specific surgeries. More specialized preauthorization reviews mean better outcomes, reduced costs, and safer surgeries.
This program can help your employees get through surgery and back to work feeling their best. Here’s how:
What procedures are covered?
- Most knee surgeries
