DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Reta, a Catholic Healthcare Trust, has contracted with BridgeHealth to
provide value-based surgery benefits to its members. BridgeHealth is the
leader in providing bundled surgical case rates to self-funded plan
sponsors. Reta’s more than 20,000 members and their covered dependents
now have access to a national program of top-performing surgical centers
of excellence at lower, predictable costs. Plan sponsors save 30-50
percent on average on major scheduled surgeries, including orthopedic,
vascular, neurologic, general, spine, bariatric and women’s health.

BridgeHealth pre-negotiates with the nation’s top surgical teams for
fixed, bundled rates, combining the charges for each surgery into a

“We were looking for a comprehensive bundled surgical solution, and
BridgeHealth was the best for our members, who are spread throughout the
U.S. In the short time since going live on July 1, BridgeHealth is
already demonstrating significant value through their contracted rates
and superior concierge member services,” said Mary McPartland, Reta
Trust’s Operations Manager. “The trust is already saving money. We even
had one member who delayed surgery to take advantage of BridgeHealth’s
excellent national providers,” she added.

“Our select provider program ensures that Reta’s members can receive top
quality surgical care regardless of their locations,” said Mark Stadler,
BridgeHealth President & CEO. “We’re pleased to offer Reta’s members and
