Our documented success stems from our commitment to “manage the situation,” rather then simply cut costs. This avoids down-the-line crises to ensure optimum plan value. Our broad areas of service include:

  • Benefits: planning, evaluation, analysis, implementation, financial reviews and due diligence; regulatory compliance audits and feasibility studies; surveys; employee benefit communications, including intranet solutions.
  • Claim and administration: audits; monitoring vendor service costs; reviewing systems, procedures and communications for contract compliance.
  • HIPAA compliance: writing privacy and security policies and procedures, training staff, identifying gaps in compliance, assisting with process re-engineering for health plans and providers.
