Save at Ambulatory Surgery Centers

Help spread the word to your employees that they can save on out-of-pocket expenses by choosing a network ambulatory surgery center (ASC) over a hospital. If their physician approves, your employees should investigate how much they can save at an ASC for outpatient surgery.

Smart for All Your Employees

If your employees are enrolled in a Blue Shield PPO plan, they may be able to save by selecting a network ASC over a hospital for most outpatient procedures. Outpatient procedures can include tonsillectomies, colonoscopies, and various types of biopsies. Having these types of procedures performed at a network ASC can save money for Blue Shield members.

Tools You Can Use

Encourage your employees to ask their doctor about ASCs when they are considering an outpatient procedure. Our downloadable materials can also help you get the word out about the advantages of ASCs.
