Employees are receiving bonus from their employers to travel-for-treatment inside the U.S.
New York, NY (PRWEB) June 28, 2016
Some self-insured employees are now receiving bonus from their employer when the employee elects to travel-for-treatment within the United States. New World’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Cathy Nenninger, used an example of hip replacement surgery to demonstrate the impact of the program, “An employee who needs surgery and is required to pay $2,500 out-of-pocket for a deductible or co-pay, for instance, can now receive a sizable bonus depending upon the savings the company will enjoy just by electing to travel to a quality U.S. facility with board-certified physicians. New World arranges all details for the concierge experience and the employer pays just a fraction of what they would have otherwise paid to the area medical facility.”
Ms. Nenninger continued with the impact to the employer, “In this same example, the employer might have paid roughly $62,000 for a procedure locally, if the employee elects to travel, would pay $28,000 in the New World One Price Healthcare® model, which is a platform all-inclusive of travel, procedure, surgeons fees, overnight hospital stay if required, recovery and meals. Since the savings is substantial, employers have been enthusiastic to share the savings back with the employee to compensate them for going out of their way to save the company money.”
