MyUrologyHealth FAQs

What is the kidney stone treatment bundle?

MyUrologyHealth takes an innovative approach that coordinates and “bundles” all the services needed successfully treat kidney stones and prevent them from coming back. You receive the best care from Vanderbilt’s nationally recognized team, backed by advanced services and technology.

How will this new program benefit kidney stone patients?

This program provides patients with a high-touch care experience through an assigned Vanderbilt Health patient navigator, enhanced focus on convenience and communication, and predictable out-of-pocket costs. This bundle also takes a comprehensive approach to kidney stone treatment, including support to help you prevent future kidney stones.

Is this bundle right for me?

If you have been told within the last six months that you need a stone removal procedure, or if you are interested in discussing treatment options for a previous diagnosis, this bundle can help you. In some cases, a kidney stone can be passed without surgery. In other cases, multiple procedures are required for successful treatment.  With this bundle, you are supported no matter your specific course of care.

What services are “bundled” in MyUrologyHealth?

The MyUrologyHealth—Kidney Stone Treatment bundle includes coordinated, proactive care from the initial surgical visit through surgery and recovery. Services include:

  • Concierge support from a dedicated patient navigator
  • Office visits pre- and post-surgery
  • Imaging as determined by your care team
  • Specialist visits for surgery clearance
  • All activities related to procedure and hospital stay
  • Subsequent procedures if needed to complete treatment
  • A personalized prevention plan, which includes nutrition consultation with a dietitian, comprehensive metabolic testing, 24-hour urine testing and identification of affordable long-term medications.
  • Low to no out-of-pocket costs

What services are NOT covered by the bundle?

*Note: Vanderbilt Tullahoma Harton Hospital and Vanderbilt Bedford Hospital are not participating in bundles at this time.

How long does the MyUrologyHealth bundle last?

Bundle coverage begins upon bundle enrollment and ends six months after the first procedure. In some cases, it may take multiple procedures to fully resolve the episode. For a patient whose episode is managed without surgery, the bundle ends 100 days after enrollment, and all related services will be covered. In the future, if a patient develops additional kidney stones that need treatment, the patient will need to begin a new bundle process.

What happens if I still have kidney stone-related appointments after my bundle ends?

In the unlikely event that your existing kidney stone has not been resolved by the end of the bundle, additional treatment will be billed to your insurance as it normally would. Bundle coverage is designed to address the vast majority of cases, so we fully expect you to successfully complete treatment within the bundle window. 

If you develop additional kidney stones in the future that need treatment, you would need to re-enroll in the bundle.
