JourneyLite Surgery Center is pleased to announce that, effective October 1, 2022, we will be the regional provider for bariatric surgery services for Transcarent, Inc.
Transcarent describes their organization as “a health care experience company that makes it easy to get the high-quality, affordable health and care that everyone deserves. Transcarent puts consumers back in charge by directly connecting them with an integrated ecosystem of high-value providers and health solutions, transparent information, and trusted guidance in as little as 60 seconds, 24/7/365, from the palm of their hand, often at no cost to Members and at a lower cost to their employer.”
Transcarent and other companies facilitate “Employer Directed Healthcare” programs. This helps large employers reduce healthcare costs for both the company and its employees by contracting with specialty facilities in various medical fields. These facilities often focus on one particular area, such as weight loss or orthopedic surgery, and tend to have higher case volumes and lower complication rates.
Several major regional employers in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana have chosen the Transcarent network to increase quality of care and access in the field of bariatric surgery. These include:
The Transcarent network of providers will greatly increase access to care for much-needed weight loss surgery services, with lower (or no) out-of-pocket costs.
JourneyLite will continue to seek out new employer-directed health networks to continue to lower the significant barrier that patients frequently face when seeking out life-saving bariatric surgery.
