HSAs, HRAs and FSAs

With the advent of consumer driven medical purchasing, as is found in HSA's and HRA's, there is an increased awareness of the cost of medical care across the industry. At Sports & Orthopaedic Specialists, we have always prided ourselves on providing value to our patients. We understand the financial pressures patients and employers are facing, and we pride ourselves on being good stewards of your money.

So what, exactly, does that mean for our patients?

  • Conservative treatment, such as physical therapy, utilized first
  • Expensive testing ordered only when required
  • High utilization of cheaper generic medications when possible
  • Surgery only when necessary

Over the course of treatment with us, we are confident our patients will receive excellent care that is also an outstanding value.
