Let’s face it. Medical procedures aren’t on the usual list of things you shop for online. However, SmartShopper is changing that.
What is SmartShopper?
SmartShopper* is a new program where eligible members can compare costs on routine medical procedures so you can save money and earn up to $1,000 in cash rewards as a share of the savings.
How Does It Work?
When you use SmartShopper to shop for and choose a cost-effective, in-network provider for a doctor-recommended procedure, Blue KC in partnership with SmartShopper, passes on a percentage of the savings back to you. You will receive a check from SmartShopper approximately six to eight weeks after your procedure.
What Procedures Can I Shop For?
In the past six months, Blue KC members have shopped for these procedures:
- Top-shopped procedures: Mammogram, colonoscopy, surgery, MRI, ultrasound.
- Procedures with highest medical bill savings: Colonoscopy, MRI, cataract removal, surgery, knee replacement.
How Much Can I Save?
Since Blue KC launched SmartShopper six months ago, eligible Blue KC members have been pleasantly surprised by how much they’ve earned in rewards for shopping.
- Total amount of Blue KC member rewards = Over $98,000
- Average Blue KC member reward = $365
