The BowTie Medical Member Advisory Services save money for our members and our clients in two major ways.
First, our call center takes calls to advise the individual members on medical advice.
Our client’s members call us to ‘get a second opinion’ or to verify that they need all the imaging and lab studies that the specialist or PCP is requesting. Many times, we can recommend that the same information can be gathered with less tests or less costly tests. This has saved our members and our clients millions of dollars and improved the experience of the members by eliminating some uncomfortable or invasive testing.
We encourage members to use our ‘Call First’ program before doing ANYTHING medical; including going to their PCP for any reason. With Call First, the member is financially incented to use our Advisory services and if there is a savings, then the member and our clients benefit. Now, for example, a $450 MRI of the knee can be done at a local, private diagnostic company instead of the Hospital based MRI which costs $3,300!
