The Best Care at the Best Price
You will not have any out of pocket expense for your surgery.
Because Gold Cross saves so much money when you use Epic, they can afford to pay the entire cost of your surgery, saving you thousands of dollars. You may still need to pay for your initial consultation, x-rays, lab work, or physical therapy, but your surgery costs you nothing—no deductible and no co-insurance.
Here is an example of costs at Epic versus a hospital—these are typical numbers and you would save more less depending on which hospital you would have chosen. This example is for a plan with a $2,000 deductible, $8,000 max out-of pocket, and 20% co-insurance.

Your surgery will cost Gold Cross about half of what it might at a hospital.
Because Epic doesn't have the overhead or billing costs of a hospital, your decision to use Epic saves Gold Cross thousands of dollars. This benefits both you and your fellow employees because it reduces expenses and reduces future rate increases.
You will never get a bill from Epic.
One of the reasons that Epic is less expensive is because we don't bill. Gold Cross pays for the entire cost of your surgery at the time you have the procedure and you will not get bill from us or the surgeon or the anesthesiologist. No surprises!
Epic is an "ambulatory surgical center."
This means that you will have your surgery and then go home—no hospital stay! We'll take great care of you while you're at Epic but you will probably only be here for 3-5 hours. You will be recovering in the comfort of your own home.
Your surgery can take place as soon as a couple of days from now.
Because Gold Cross employees are a priority at Epic, you could have your surgery and start experiencing relief within days.
