SurgeryPlus Care Advocates

SurgeryPlus Care Advocates are your connection to the SurgeryPlus benefit. They help you find a great doctor for your procedure, schedule your procedure appointments, make travel reservations (if travel is required), transfer your medical records, and coordinate all your surgery bills.

Through the planning process, you will work with the same Care Advocate. Your SurgeryPlus Care Advocate will provide you one-on-one, personalized help each step of the way. 

Travel Benefit

Your SurgeryPlus benefit will also help pay for necessary travel associated with the covered procedure. The specific travel benefit depends on the procedure, the provider, and the distance between the provider and a member's residence. For procedures requiring inpatient admission or overnight recovery, the travel benefit covers the patient and one companion for a limited amount of time. Only travel arrangements made through your Care Advocate are eligible for coverage under the SurgeryPlus benefit.
