HealthJoy selects EDH as surgery network partner

Care navigation platform HealthJoy has selected EmployerDirect Healthcare (EDH) as their surgery network partner. EDH facilitates concierge access to high-quality specialty care for members of self-funded plans, with a focus on surgery and cancer.

Through this partnership, HealthJoy’s employer clients – many of whom have fewer than 10,000 employees – will now have ‘seamless’ access to EDH’s specialty network and Center of Excellence (COE) capabilities, which have historically been limited to enterprise national accounts.

EDH is a highly selective network of thousands of specialists located in more than 157 metropolitan regions across the country. On average, employees who leverage EDH’s SurgeryPlus network save $4,000, while employers save nearly $20,000 per episode. By steering employees to the SurgeryPlus solution, employers can dramatically reduce surgical and other specialty care spend without sacrificing quality or burdening their employees with high out-of-pocket costs.

“Our partnership with Employer Direct Healthcare will provide tremendous value to our clients and their employees. SurgeryPlus will provide nationwide access to the highest-quality surgical providers, end-to-end support and advocacy and meaningful cost savings. We’re thrilled to be integrating this best-in-class solution into the HealthJoy experience.” – Doug Morse-Schindler, President and co-founder of HealthJoy.

“In joining forces with HealthJoy, we’re honored to partner with a company that’s democratizing access to the most advanced tools to manage an increasingly complex and intimidating healthcare system. We’re especially excited about the new opportunities for EDH to seamlessly contract with the market segments that HealthJoy serves.” – John Zutter, CEO, EDH.
