High-quality care.

Transcarent’s stringent standards for providers ensure that you receive the best care specific to your procedure. They assess complications and other measures down to the facility, provider and procedure level, review a facility’s commitment to quality safe and effective care and engage in ongoing collaboration to assure and improve the quality of care they provide. That’s how Transcarent delivers best in-class results.

Help every step of the way - Concierge service

You will only work with ONE Care Coordinator for the entire process. A dedicated Care Coordinator provides concierge support that takes the headaches out of approvals, scheduling and paperwork.

Is there really no cost to me?

YES! Surgery costs are covered at 100% for participants and eligible dependents. You’ll never receive a surprise bill! It’s simple. The SAG-AFTRA Health Plan passes on the savings from Transcarent's pre-negotiated, bundled rates to you. In a typical scenario, a participant may need knee replacement surgery and is on the participant only plan. The participant will save on the total cost of the procedure.
