Cost containment success story

At a leading New York City hospital, a MagnaCare member underwent out-patient knee replacement surgery. Upon investigation into the pricing, our Medical Management team uncovered an excessive markup on the price of the implant (artificial joint), which was 12 times higher than the cost to the hospital – a fee that is far beyond what is reasonable and customary.

We successfully repriced the bill from $134,210 to $66,158 – for a total savings to the plan sponsor of $39,705.
