By July 1, 2019, most of our members who have serious injuries or illnesses related to cancer or orthopedics will have access to Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS), the top-ranked orthopedic hospital in the nation*, and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK), one of the country’s leading cancer centers. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) has designated MSK as one of three Comprehensive Cancer Centers in New York State. There are 49 NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers in the U.S.
EmblemHealth chose these Centers of Excellence partners after a competitive evaluation process because they are committed to meeting the needs of our members while delivering clinically appropriate, cost-effective care. Both hospitals are renowned for their research, training, and technology standards. Finally, they have many convenient locations throughout Manhattan, Long Island, Westchester, and New Jersey, allowing your patients to receive care close to home.
Members can find out whether these centers are part of their network and learn more about covered services, including cost-sharing information, by calling the number on their member ID card.
Other Centers of Excellence beyond cancer and orthopedics may be available soon.
