MERCURY HEALTH TRAVEL
a fully-owned subsidiary of Mercury Healthcare International, has been assisting employers that operate ERISA and Taft-Hartley self-funded health benefit plans to create, develop and operate a medical travel benefit program for employees, dependents, executives, and retirees since 2003.
Employers and union health and welfare plans save money and contract directly with high-value healthcare service facilities and practitioners worldwide, no matter where their employees work.
Employee & Executive Health and Wellness Travel
Benefit Design and Case Management
Full service consultation is available to help ERISA plan administrators design the benefit, draft the program SPD and other plan documents, select & inspect providers, create and operate the provider network, vet the provider and facility credentials experience and training, contract with providers and negotiate fees, and process and pay provider claims.
Operationally, the program is similar to the network infrastructure architecture found in most HMOs or PHOs. In 2010, we filed for and received a new term of art registration for this organizational structure from the USPTO as a Globally Integrated Health Delivery System®.
For quick starts, Approved Providers of health and wellness services in 120 countries are available to provide the full range of diagnostic, surgery, rehabilitation, dialysis, clinical trials and executive checkups in the USA and abroad.
Once your selected network is empanelled and contracted, we help you coordinate all plan participant service access using our specially-trained nurse case managers and health travel coordinators, telehealth services, destination coordinators, care continuity back home, and measure savings and satisfaction and clinical outcomes on your behalf on a PEPM fee basis.
MERCURY HEALTH TRAVEL DOES NOT ACCEPT REFERRAL COMMISSION PAYMENTS FROM PROVIDERS FOR REFERRAL STEERAGE
Most of our employer and labor union clients use population health management and predictive modeling tools and standard incidence frequency rate volumes to calculate anticipated utilization, case volumes and costs associated with their health travel benefit program. Upon request of Mercury Health Travel client employers and labor unions, we assist them with provider contract negotiations. However, all contracts and exclusive pricing terms are directly negotiated between suppliers and employers or union health and welfare benefit plan administrators.
Hospitals, clinics and healthcare providers seeking collaboration with Mercury Health Travel may request pre-screening and site visits to determine if they will qualify for third-party network empanellment. However, pre-screening and pre-qualification site visits for Approved Provider status do not guarantee any success or preference by employers and labor union plan administrators.
Each employer or union plan administrator selects its own short-list of qualified providers from our network of Approved Providers according to its company priorities and plan design for its employees, executives and retirees. All costs associated with site inspections by Mercury Health Travel are borne by the provider.
