Discounts offered for ‘retail’ health services at EHC

Una Hutton Newman is senior associate vice president and chief marketing officer, Emory University and chief marketing officer, Emory Healthcare.

Are you considering a facelift or an eyelift? How about some contact lenses or eyeglasses? Or have you been thinking about getting rid of those eyeglasses forever with LASIK surgery? Maybe you need a jump start on your New Year’s resolution to lose weight? Whatever elective procedures you’re mulling over, why not let Emory help make your dreams come true. Emory offers you an employee discount for a variety of health-related procedures – from breast surgery to body contouring.

These procedures may or may not be covered on your insurance plan but they’re offered at significant discounts to employees and family members. Some specialties even offer free consultations or factor the price of an initial consultation against the procedure costs.

Visit www.emoryhealthcare.org/ departments/employee/retail-services.html to get the details about some of the more popular services Emory offers, including contact information, office hours, discounts available, physician list and more. And when you’re considering some of these exciting services, why not utilize your Healthcare Flexible Spending Account funds, which can be used in some instances, to maximize your benefit dollars.
