Partner Program

Summa Health System is an Integrated Healthcare Delivery System that provides coordinated, value-based care across the continuum for the people and populations we serve. We hold ourselves clinically and financially accountable for health outcomes in our communities. We are nationally renowned for delivering quality, compassionate patient care.

The Summa Health System Partner Program:
This program allows eligible patients with out-of-network benefits to receive their healthcare services at Summa Health System, even if Summa Health System is not the in-network provider. Under the terms of the program, all out-of-network penalties for hospital services are waived. Patients will be responsible only for any in-network deductible co-pay, co-insurance or patient conveniences such as a private room. Summa Health System cannot guarantee all physicians will participate in this program; therefore, you should discuss your physician's fees with your healthcare provider before services are performed.

Services Covered by the Partner Program:

  • Medical services
  • Maternity services
  • Surgical procedures
  • Diagnostic procedures

The program covers all ancillary services performed at a Summa Health System entity.

If you would like to use a Summa Health System facility and have out-of-network benefits such as a PPO, POS or an HMO plan with out-of-network benefits, please discuss with your physician.

Patients NOT eligible for the Partner Program include:

  • Medicare beneficiaries
  • Medicaid beneficiaries
  • Individuals covered by an HMO plan with no out-of-network benefits
  • Individuals covered by a health plan for federal employees
  • Individuals covered by worker's compensation
  • Those covered by motor vehicle accident claims
  • Uninsured patients (Summa Health System provides care for these patients through other programs)
  • Individuals covered by a health plan that currently has access to Summa Health System
