AHPT Announces New Provider Partners in Texas
The Premier Provider program was created to promote the use of providers offering high quality services on a transparent, bundled, cash price basis. Since 2011, AHPT banks have saved more than $9 million in claims! The savings are so great that participants’ deductibles and coinsurance are waived for eligible services performed at Premier Providers. Since AHPT is self-funded, these savings belong to the membership and help offset future rate adjustments. The newest Premier Provider, Texas Free Market Surgery, offers pricing at two locations in Austin.
When participants fully understand the impact of healthcare costs, they view their buying decisions differently. Participants even take the initiative to negotiate a fair price with providers in their local communities using the Premier Provider pricing as a reference. Victoria Eye Center and Graham Regional Medical Center are two providers who have agreed to partner with AHPT and match the fair price of another Premier Provider for a local participant! Competition, even in healthcare, drives costs down while increasing quality and efficiency!
