Optum: Impact Report and CEO Profile

Surgical Management Solutions captures an average of 50% savings for surgical procedures

CEO takeaways:
• Most leaders review surgical cost as a single line item. But significant savings can be identified by taking an in-depth look within each specialty category and examining the costs of each site of service.

• Innovative programs can add on to existing health benefits and offer significant savings without any changes to benefit plan design, customer communication pathways or provider networks.

• Reducing the cost of surgical procedures can save money and help reduce consumer uncertainty and have a positive impact on an employer’s NPS.
