Carrum Health Surgery Benefit

 

When it comes to surgery, it’s important to get the highest quality of care. That’s why the State of Maine provides Carrum Health to employees and dependents enrolled in the State of Maine Health Plan.

Carrum is a feature of your health benefits that gives you access to the top surgeons in the nation. Most, if not all, surgery and travel costs (if needed) are covered.*

Covered procedures include:

  • Joint replacement
  • Weight-loss
  • Spine
  • Heart
  • And more.

Important UpdateAs of July 1, 2022 it will be mandatory for plan members to go through the Carrum Health benefit when receiving total and partial hip and knee replacement surgery. Surgery expenses for these joint replacements will be fully covered at Spectrum Orthopedics, for plan members and dependents ages 18+ when going through Carrum Health. Information about limited exceptions and prior authorization may be obtained through Carrum Health.  

If you or your eligible dependent need surgery, think of Carrum Health. To learn more, register today or call Carrum at (888) 855-7806.

These benefits must be accessed through Carrum Health. Per IRS rules, a portion of any covered travel expenses will be reported as taxable income.
