The most important consideration when choosing a transplant network should always be the quality of care delivered. A secondary but important consideration is the cost effectiveness of the network. Contracts for the U.R.N. Transplant Centers of Excellence network and Transplant Access Program (TAP) are structured in a variety of ways, allowing Summit Re customers referral options based on their desire for cost predictability. In order to assist in the contract selection process, U.R.N. has identified a subset of network contracts without floors and aggregated them into a “No Floors” network.
The U.R.N. "No Floors" network consists of programs with transplant contracts that eliminate the possibility of a transplant being paid at a percent of billed charges. This network consists of 51 centers and 237 transplant programs and increases the transparency of network providers without minimum payment provisions. This provides you with greater transplant cost predictability when using a “No Floors” network facility.
Information regarding the “No Floors” network, including a listing of the facilities, can be found on the U.R.N. website (www.urnweb.com) or you can contact Debbie Stubbs, RN, MS, CCM at 260-407-3979 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
