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.
