Organ Transplant

Commercial Group Intermediaries offers a fully insured, first dollar organ and tissue transplant carve out for self funded groups. This remarkable benefit is encompassed in an admitted stand alone policy that can attach to any plan document, regardless of the stop loss carrier. The coverage begins at patient evaluation and extends 365 days post transplantoperation, and pays 100% of all covered transplant-related physician, hospital, and drug expenses when in network. A shorter benefit period is available.

Did you know?

  • As many as 40%-50% of all lasers imposed on self funded groups are due to transplant exposures. 
  • The average waiting time for a solid organ is over a year. As a result, transplant patients usually jump over stop loss contract years, thus becoming magnets for imposed lasers or rate increases. 

Coverage for the following Transplant Types is Offered:

  • Bone Marrow
  • Heart     
  • Heart/Lung     
  • Intestine
  • Kidney 
  • Kidney/Pancreas
  • Liver
  • Lung
  • Pancreas
  • Stem Cell

Benefits to the Self-Funded Employer:

  • 100% coverage on all major transplant types from first dollar to $1 million life maximum.
  • 100% coverage for NCI Phase Trials III and IV for adults, Phases I through IV for pediatrics (this is a much more liberal coverage of experimental than most plan documents allow).
  • No deductibles for patients when in-network.
  • Liberal expense allocations for patients traveling to distant centers of excellence.
  • Benefit period covers from time of patient evaluation through 365 days post transplant, and includes hospital, physician and pharmaceutical expenses.
  • Direct payment by Medical Excess to providers, no cash flow issues for the employer.
  • Complete medical management and coordination of the patient with on-staff RNs.
  • Average cost of about $8.00 PEPM, a far less expense than the cost of a laser.
  • Contributes budget predictability and stability to Stop Loss rates.

Benefits to the Producer:

  • 5% commission 
  • Many stop loss carriers give a 2% to 10% credit on the specific stop loss for the transplant carve out, based on stop loss specific deductible. 
  • TPA Partners are waived of group minimum size, thus becoming a competitive differential for groups looking for this coverage. 
  • Extensive marketing assistance afforded to the producer from CGI to help sell the program. 
  • A group can be eligible for this coverage regardless of their stop loss carrier, as long as they meet minimum enrollment requirements. 
  • High renewal persistency among groups with transplant carve out. 
  • Carrier management of transplant exposures allows administrator to redirect internal clinical resources to more chronic problems. 

Which Groups Should Seriously Consider Adding This Coverage?

  • Unions and Associations often cap transplants at $250K and less, rendering it a less valuable benefit.
  • Large, completely self funded groups. Many don't want to sustain a single catastrophic hit such as Transplants and may have a high frequency issue.
  • Groups that have experienced a transplant exposure in the past or groups where a laser has played havoc with their stop loss insurance.
  • Groups that "have never had a transplant exposure". The best time to buy transplant insurance is when the group is completely clean of exposures.

Welcome to Medical Tourism.

For those of us who have not heard the term “Medical Tourism” it is very possible you will in the near future. Segments on 60 Minutes, Nightline, and articles in the Wall Street Journal have all indicated that Medical Tourism’s competitive pricing coupled with quality care will continue to push domestic medical needs to foreign markets. Medical Tourism is here to stay and is growing at an unpredicted rate. In 2008 projected medical travel was expected to reach 750,000 and in 2011 to exceed 9,000,000 which will revolutionize medical delivery in our country and the international sector. Hospitals in the international community and are JCI accredited and will compete with US Hospitals for patients on a global basis.

Why Medical Tourism?

In today’s self insured market Medical Tourism is an alternate choice and can be added to the Plan Document in a passive manner. How? By offering incentives to the employee in the form of waiving deductibles, coinsurance, and the out-of-pocket maximums and also offering spousal travel. The employer also benefits because his reimbursements for stop loss are less as illustrated below:

ProcedureU.S. AverageInternational Average
Heart Bypass$145,000$28,000
Heart Valve$178,000$22,500
Hip Replacement$80,000$14,000
Knee Replacement$66,000$12,000
