Don't Let Unexpected Surgery Get Overwhelming

Access High-Quality ASCs at Lower Costs

SMS guides you to a surgeon in your local community who specializes in your condition, and who can help you choose the appropriate setting for your procedure. Every surgeon in our alliance regularly uses a high quality ambulatory surgery center (ASC), opening up the possibility for you to have your outpatient procedure at significant cost savings.

The Specialist Management Solutions program is part of an employer’s health benefits program. If your employer offers the program, you’re already enrolled…no extra costs involved.

How It Works

Streamlined, Simplified Healthcare

Connect with a Care Advocate

You have access to the SMS program as a free add-on to your health plan. As soon as you or one of your family members faces the possibility of surgery, you can reach out to the SMS concierge service, just a fast phone call or simple click away.

Explore Informed Options

Learn from a care advocate the cost difference between an ASC and a hospital. Then, work directly with them to connect to an SMS-affiliated surgeon who specializes in your condition. The care advocate is there the throughout the surgical care experience, offering trusted support at any point.

Get Experienced, Local Care

You will meet with the SMS surgeon, who performs a clinical assessment. If surgery is indicated, the surgeon works with you to determine the setting that suits your needs. When medically appropriate, the surgeon guides you to an ASC for the procedure.

SMS Makes Surgery More Affordable & More Accessible

"Thank you so much for your help. Knowing you had my best interest at heart was amazing and you have an invite to our yearly family BBQ."
"It took you 45 minutes to do what I've been trying to do for 4 years."
"Thank you so much for helping me through this process. You have been the voice I needed to steer me in the right direction."

SMS Helps Employees Gain More Insight

Expand Your Options for Better, More Informed Decisions

The right surgeon expands a patient’s options. Some surgeons choose to perform all outpatient surgeries in the hospital setting, which imposes higher costs upon their patients. Connecting with a high-quality surgeon who also regularly uses an ASC opens the possibility for the individual to have their outpatient procedure in a facility that may better fit their clinical and financial needs.
