Newswise — Chicago, IL, May 17, 2016 – Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush (MOR) is one of the first orthopedic groups in the country to offer package pricing - a flat fee payment option - for treating some of the most common orthopedic conditions. In an unprecedented move, MOR is also listing the price structure on their website for patients to see.

Patients struggling with increasing insurance rates and growing out-of-pocket healthcare expenses can rest assured that they are receiving some of the highest quality treatment in the nation. U.S. News & World Report has listed the orthopedic program at Rush University Medical Center as the highest ranked program in Illinois and #6 in the nation.

At present, there are five surgical procedures that are included in the MOR Package Pricing: Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Repair, Hip Arthroscopy, Knee Arthroscopy, Rotator Cuff Repair (Arthroscopic) and Shoulder Arthroscopy. Services provided in this program are not billed to any third parties or insurance plans.

“We listened to our patients and determined a need to offer quality orthopedic care for affordable prices -- especially for those who are uninsured or have high deductibles,” explains Dr. Nikhil Verma, MOR shoulder and knee surgeon and team physician for the Chicago White Sox and Chicago Bulls. “With our new package pricing, one fixed payment covers all surgeon, facility and anesthesia fees; supplies and implants; and uncomplicated follow-up care. Patients won’t be monitoring their mailboxes for another bill because our program has transparent pricing and no hidden fees.”

Some expenses not included in the MOR Package Pricing include: preoperative diagnostic tests, travel expenses, durable medical equipment and physical therapy. For additional information on MOR Surgical Services Package Pricing Program, please click here.
