Ternian Develops PPO Network in Mexico

Helping members in border states maximize their benefits: Ternian develops new PPO network of providers in Mexico
We have developed a strategy that will help your clients extend the value of their employee benefits without increasing their premiums. Latino employees in border states frequently seekFamily-trip care in Mexico. This makes traditional limited medical benefit insurance plans with US-only providers less appealing for these employees. This segment is also growing rapidly. Latinos are expected to constitute 30 percent of the American population by 2060.1

At the same time, Mexico is the world’s second-largest medical tourism destination.2 This concept is becoming more popular as employees are looking for lower-cost care. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, 61% of US patients traveled to Mexico for healthcare because of cost.3

That’s why Ternian has added select healthcare facilities and their providers in Mexico that provide high-quality care. These facilities have committed to accept assignment, so employees won’t have to file claims, as we receive these bills directly.

We will integrate these select providers into all of our benefit plans over the next several months.
