The IAFF Health & Wellness Trust (IAFF HWT) expands your options with the Transcarent (formerly BridgeHealth) surgery program at no additional cost to you. Transcarent saves you money and gives you access to top-rated hospitals, surgery centers and doctors for planned non-emergent procedures. Your Transcarent benefits are optional to use and are separate from your medical plan.
Transcarent negotiates bundled case rates with surgical Centers of Excellence. The case rates include all medical costs of surgery from start to finish – no separate bills from the surgeon, the anesthesiologist, or the hospital. All the patient’s expenses, from the preoperative appointment to the postoperative appointment, are covered in the bundled case rate. (Note: This benefit is subject to deductible for members enrolled in a Qualified High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP)).
Transcarent’s preferred pricing means that IAFF HWT can reduce or eliminate your out-of-pocket costs, connect you with a high-quality provider with proven outcomes, and helps reduce the Trust’s long-term spend.
