Cost Management Strategies
BAS Medical Management
- Medical management of the benefit plan is an important aspect to controlling the cost of catastrophic claims. At BAS, our internal medical management team daily reviews members who have pre-certified care. From this review, the medical management team can determine the appropriate next steps, such as referral to case management, disease management, or other programs offered by the employer.
- The BAS medical management team may also determine a BAS Personal Assistant should be assigned to the member to provide support in navigating the health care system. The BAS Personal Assistant will then call the member to offer their services as the single BAS point of contact during the episode of treatment. The BAS medical management team is a key factor in identifying emerging catastrophic claims and providing direction for the member to access the best resources.
