TULSA, Okla., Jan. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — The Zero Card now includes Regenexx in its network of services. Employers who partner with Regenexx report a significant drop in the need for high risk orthopedic surgeries and see up to 80 percent reduction in associated costs. Zero Card CEO Jim Millaway, describes the partnership with Regenexx: “Regenexx provides breakthrough, non-surgical treatments to help treat orthopedic injuries and restore joint function without surgery. Non-surgical means less pain, less downtime and less risk. The Zero Card is excited to make this a part of our product offering, it fits perfectly with our vision to create a healthcare marketplace that is easy to understand, that provides a great value to the employer, and can be offered for $0 to the employee.”
The Zero Card works with self-funded employers across the country to deliver a supplemental healthcare option for plan members designed to significantly lower costs on high-volume services. They achieve significant cost savings through direct contracting for common procedures such as labs, diagnostic imaging, and surgeries. The Zero Card is a voluntary program, so covered members can access care through traditional employer programs. When a member uses a Zero Card benefit, the employee will pay $0 and the plan will pay significantly less for the service than through traditional channels.
“The addition of Regenexx procedures to a self funded plan dramatically reduces the amount of unnecessary orthopedic surgeries which is a win-win for employee and employer,” says Regenexx CEO Jason Hellickson. “For people in pain, the opportunity to avoid surgery and treat their orthopedic condition is transforming. The Zero Card offers true transparency in cost and provides the highest quality options in healthcare. Regenexx fits perfectly into this model, with savings realized the moment a surgery is avoided.”
