Don’t be Trapped by PPO Network Contracts

Why do you continue paying outlandish premiums for your insurance plan? Why do your premiums go up every year? What if there was a way to keep employee premiums down without lowering benefits or raising deductibles? You need a smart alternative to the typical PPO network discounts that hardly make a difference in terms of cost savings.  What if instead of “top down discounts” on your bill you were paying a fair and reasonable price from bottom up? This would bring charges for things like MRIs, medical supplies, and procedures such as dialysis to a more reasonable level.

The Open Solution™ obtains massive savings off of billed charges. With the help of ELAP Services we protect you and your precious healthcare dollars by auditing and re-pricing each and every medical facility bill that contain exorbitant charges. We advise our clients to purchase health care in the same manner they buy everything else: with transparency and a clear relationship between cost/value and price.

ELAP Services analyzes bills based on criteria such as what hospitals bill Medicare patients. Using a hospital’s own financial filings, ELAP isolates billing errors and outrageous charges for small items, such as $75 gauze pads. When faced with this documentation hospitals accept the lower payment most of the time.  ELAP also offers a co-fiduciary relationship to provide legal defense if balance billing occurs, and defends plans and individuals from unfair and illegal collection practices by medical facilities.

Unfortunately, most PPO discounts offer minimal savings. Usually PPO networks save you an average 25% off the billed amount. This means if you were to take same bill from above you would have paid $9,583.50 under a traditional PPO network discount. By having the bill audited and re-priced we were able to save the company 84% off the billed amount or $10,709.22.  We dare you to try to find a PPO network discount that will help your company more than our audit and re-pricing services.
