Trilogy Health Solutions announced today that Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Specialists (OSMS) will participate in their work comp cost containment solution – WC Bundled Payments (WCBP) – giving Green Bay and the greater area employers access to transparent, all-inclusive pricing for orthopedic care. OSMS has established bundled pricing for orthopedic surgeries and diagnostic services commonly required in treating injured workers such as arthroscopic rotator cuff repair and carpal tunnel release.
“We pride ourselves on being a value-based practice where patients can expect the highest quality and safety, without the price tag of big healthcare,” said Sandy Fragale, OSMS CEO. “This is another example of bringing exceptional value to the communities we serve.”
WCBP, a national solution, was created to address employers’ concerns about the high cost of healthcare for injured workers. The exact same healthcare service can cost one to five times more when paid for an injured worker than for that person’s group health benefits.
WCBP’s platform delivers a side-by-side comparison of participating providers’ bundles, or episodes of care with what is typically paid in the market today. Price transparency in combination with high quality providers that support bundled pricing methodology drives down the cost of care providing substantial savings to the workers’ compensation marketplace.
“We are extremely pleased to have OSMS participate in this next generation healthcare model stemming from our years of experience in providing high-quality and cost-efficient solutions to Wisconsin employers,” stated Bill Felsing, President & CEO of Trilogy Health Solutions. “We consider this partnership with OSMS an important step towards advancing alternative payment models of care that reward value in care delivery.”
