Center of Excellence Program

Center of Excellence Program

The Cleveland Clinic Cardiac Center of Excellence Program provides employees and covered dependents access to world class heart care at Cleveland Clinic. Since 1995, no hospital in the country has ranked higher than Cleveland Clinic in cardiac care, earning the No. 1 ranking in U.S. News & World Report’s “2022-23 Best Hospitals.”

The Cleveland Clinic Cardiac Center of Excellence Program is available for those in need of non-emergency heart surgeries. The program covers all deductibles (except those on HSA plan designs), co-insurance, travel and hotel for the patient and a companion. Travel arrangements and concierge service are also part of the program. We take care of all the details, so patients can focus on what’s most important – their health and recovery.

We are able to treat the most complex patients and provide a quality outcome. The result is a superior experience for the plan member and a quicker return to work, which carries a long-term impact. Employers have also realized savings due to cost avoidance from unnecessary surgical procedures, a benefit of Cleveland Clinic’s group practice model. With a staff of salaried physicians, there is no incentive to recommend unnecessary treatments.

Employers can feel confident that their plan members are following the correct and more cost-effective treatment path.

How the Program Works

  • Change in benefit design to allow 100% coverage for the employee and required medical record review for select procedures
  • Enhanced care coordination that offers 24/7 access and transitions care to home providers after surgery
  • Cost transparency through preferred global case rates for predictable pricing and savings
  • Concierge-style support from Cleveland Clinic each step of the way for both the patient and companion
