Specialist Management Solutions (SMS) is a holistic specialty solution that opens the door to affordable, quality care. SMS has a broad network of physicians in local communities, making finding a doctor more convenient for members. The SMS advocates can help members schedule consults with a provider, connect members with other benefit programs, and serve as the single point of contact throughout their health care journey. Specialists in the SMS alliance use ambulatory surgery centers (ASC), which means employees may receive surgical care and other procedures in an outpatient setting which may result in cost savings. The SMS program is available at no cost to the member.*
This program is not available to employees living in Hawaii.
To speak to an SMS care advocate, call 1-833-433-1339.
