Be a smart shopper. Earn rewards.
The choice is yours.

Here's how Tandem can help you save money and earn rewards:

1. Call or email Tandem if your doctor schedules you for an outpatient
test or procedure, such as:

  • MRI
  • CT Scan
  • Mammogram
  • Bone Density Study
  • Colonoscopy
  • Lab Tests
  • Ultrasound
  • Sleep study
  • Outpatient Surgery
  • Other outpatient tests and procedures

2. A Tandem nurse will help you compare the cost and quality of your health plan’s participating providers in your area.

3. If you choose a low-cost provider, Tandem will help you reschedule your appointment and you will receive a financial reward for being a smart health care shopper. Your reward will be mailed to your home after you receive an explanation of benefits from your health plan. Your health plan may require a referral and/or prior authorization before you receive services from the low-cost provider. To ensure the services will be covered, please refer to your plan documents or contact your health plan for more information.

Tandem Standard Reward Schedule

Tandem’s standard rewards range from $10 to $75, depending on the type of service you are having and how much you save. Tandem also has customized reward programs for specific employer groups. When you call about your outpatient test or procedure, your Tandem nurse will tell you about the rewards that apply to your group for your test or procedure.
