We have seen a significant downward trend in case volume from 88.7% to 81.9% of overall case mix in the high-cost setting, with a corresponding upward trend from 12% to 20% in a lower cost, high-quality setting, resulting in an average savings of approximately $3,500 to $8,000 per case."

"With the IPG program, we have increased device accessibility, without the need to front the cost of the device, and have been able to maintain freedom of choice for implants. Our Materials Management Department loves this! IPG has provided us with the opportunity for more procedures to be performed in our facility."

Grow procedure volume and expand surgical mix using high-quality technologies. IPG brings structure and certainty to a challenging economic environment, allowing physicians to commit time and resources to delivering care at the best cost and in the most appropriate setting.
"For the first time in 23 years as a physician, I am not only able to help my patients choose the best treatment for their problem; I am also able to help them find the most cost effective way to provide that care. The thought that physicians don't understand the bigger business of healthcare is just not true. Thanks to companies like IPG, SCA, and BCBCNC and their willingness to work directly with physicians, together, we are making a big difference in the cost of healthcare. This is really an opportunity for not only ASCs but hospitals and their physicians as well to collaborate with all parties to bring lower cost, high-quality care to consumers."
A partnership with IPG allows participating manufacturers to expand market share with access to our contracted health plan populations.
"Being part of the IPG Manufacturer Network has allowed our sales team a new found access to key decision makers in accounts where we previously had no presence. We are always looking for a competitive advantage and our partnership with IPG has provided us that benefit."
Gain access to high-quality, implant-related surgical procedures with lower out-of-pocket expenses.
IPG has contracted partnerships with the leading health insurance carriers and hundreds of healthcare providers across the country, bringing you more affordable care and resulting in high-quality services and lower out-of-pocket costs for you as a patient.
As a part of the care team associated with your procedure, you may receive a bill from IPG for the implants and/or medical devices used.
Time magazine’s 2013 special report, "Bitter Pill: Why Medical Bills Are Killing Us", journalist Steven Brill revealed that a patient was charged $49,237 for a neurostimulator — which is where the hospital made most of their profit.
IPG uses data analytics to bring transparency to the price differences between the hospital and ambulatory surgery center setting. This results in savings of over 20% to the health plan, which ensures patients have access to high-quality, affordable care.
"Because my doctor was able to perform my knee replacement surgery at a facility using IPG, my out-of-pocket bill was significantly lower. Their great customer service and easy online payment made for a hassle-free experience."
