ConsumerMedical is designed to help all benefit-eligible employees (you do not have to be enrolled in a Pearson medical plan to access this service) and their household members get current, comprehensive, objective and personalized information (including treatment options) and support about any medical diagnosis or health topic. Read this brochure to get a better understanding of what assistance ConsumerMedical can provide to you and your family.
If you are enrolled in one of the national medical plans, you must participate in the Surgery Decision Support (SDS) program administered by ConsumerMedical if you or your covered dependent, age 18 or older, have a physician-confirmed diagnosis and recommendation for hip replacement, low back surgery, knee replacement, hysterectomy or weight loss surgery (emergencies excluded). Not doing so will result in paying an additional $1,000 at the time your claim is processed. Click here to get a better idea of how the program works.
