Are You Spending Too Much on Surgery Costs?

Better Employee Experiences, Less Employer Spending

Surgical Management Solutions integrates with your existing employee health program for a tailored fit and seamless experience. When employees or family members are facing the possibility of surgery, SMS connects them to specialty surgeons in their communities who help them choose the appropriate settings for their procedures. Surgeons in the SMS alliance regularly use high-quality ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs), which means significant savings for your company.

How It Works

Streamlined, Simplified Healthcare

Connect with a Care Advocate

Employees have access to the SMS program as a free add-on to their health plan. As soon as an employee or family member faces the possibility of surgery, they can reach out to the SMS concierge service, just a fast phone call or simple click away.

Explore Informed options

The SMS care advocate educates on the potential cost difference between an ambulatory surgery center and a hospital, and connects the employee to an in-network SMS-affiliated surgeon who specializes in their condition. The care advocate is there the throughout the surgical care experience, offering trusted support at any point.

Get Experienced, Local Care

The employee meets with the SMS surgeon, who performs a clinical assessment. If surgery is indicated, the surgeon works with the employee to determine the setting that suits their needs. When medically appropriate, the surgeon guides the employee to an ASC for the procedure.

Built-In Simplicity

Powered by Education

Broad Reach, Local Expertise

Tailored Pricing Model for Your Needs

SMS can tailor the pricing model to meet whatever your individual needs may be. We provide options such as shared savings – where the employer, SMS, and employees split savings, or a per month option – where pricing is based on each employee enrolled per month. 

We understand that surgeries are frequently unexpected, so we work with employers to engage and educate employees on an ongoing basis so they know they can turn to SMS should the need arise.
