Just as Medtronic is leading the way to transform healthcare, we aspire to transform and continue to improve the ways you experience your own health benefits. That's why, as part of your 2019 benefits package, Medtronic is introducing Bind, a new type of on-demand medical plan.
The Bind plan has a $0 deductible and copays apply for a Core set of services, including preventive and primary care, maternity care, prescription drug coverage, and emergency care. You have the flexibility to purchase Add-In coverage for certain planned medical procedures like knee replacement or back surgery. The Bind plan keeps 31 procedures out of its Core coverage to keep your paycheck contributions low, but you can add them at any time during the year, if you need them.
Bind also comes with a supportive customer service Help Team and online tools so you have instant answers about what's covered, what everything costs, and how to find high-quality health providers.
Bind Provides Value-Based Healthcare
Our business focus on value-based healthcare applies to the industry, patients — and our own employees and families. Value-based healthcare is an approach that ties provider payments to cost, quality, and patient experience measures. This is the type of care that Bind aims to deliver.
How Bind Works
You have the option to buy Add-In coverage at any point during the year if your needs change. Use Add-Ins to cover 31 select plannable procedures including shoulder surgery, knee replacement, and bariatric surgery.
