Streamlined and simplified
Overwhelmed by the thought of various doctors, exams, procedures and bills that can come with knee, hip or shoulder replacement?
Now there's a simpler way – without the hassles, worry and confusion. You can have all your care coordinated through a participating orthopedic provider. And instead of getting multiple bills at every step of the process, you get just one or two bills. (Specific items such as joint replacement hardware may be billed separately.)
The benefits add up
- Increased overall quality of care
- Higher level of service
- Greater emphasis on the management of costs
- Physical therapy is covered at 100%
- All post-surgical services included
How does the program work?
We're working with select, high-quality orthopedic specialists across North Carolina1 to simplify the entire process – from pre-surgery consults and testing to post-surgery follow-up and physical therapy. So, all your care is coordinated for you.
What's more, all costs for services related to your joint replacement are billed together – saving time and reducing paperwork. To learn more, call one of the providers listed below.
