About BARInet

It’s a fact that there is a huge lack of access to affordable, high quality bariatric surgery within employer-sponsored health plans. It is also a fact that obesity and metabolic disease is one, if not the most costly disease states affecting your plan members, as well as your plan’s overall healthcare spend. Research continues to show that the burden of obesity in the workplace, is causing direct and indirect healthcare costs to sky-rocket. Based on this, BARInet created a program that provides the highest quality bariatric care, for those morbidly obese plan members in need of surgical intervention.

BARInet provides employers a way to offer bariatric surgery within self-insured health plans that has proven to show better outcomes at lower costs. BARInet is a recognized leader in provider and facility contracting for bundled case rates that include the various surgery charges in a single discounted price, with extended readmission warranties and risk assurance. Combining these pre-negotiated case rate bundles for bariatric surgery with high quality healthcare providers offers our clients the best possible service value: high quality and lower cost.

BARInet offers this program to any size self-funded or fully-funded employers, government and education groups, Taft-Hartley & Union plans, third-party administrators and consultants, associations, and health captives.
