Medical Insurance Policy Services

Companies need to review the services that medical brokers and insurance companies provide on a regular basis to control costs and continuously improve processes and services. Health insurance offerings are complex and require specific expertise to manage effectively and efficiently.

Paladin's Strategic Insurance Partner assists clients to determine their optimal cost structure, plan design, and servicing needs. Information such as plan descriptions, loss data, premiums, historical costs and contract details must be compiled. This data is used as bench marking criteria to compare the client's insurance portfolio characteristics to national peers in order to solicit proposals for competitive bids.
