TPA Networkhas been at the forefront of innovation in the TPA industry since 1985. Indeed, our experience dates back to the beginning of the health insurance industry, in the 1960s.
Principals of our firm have helped to shape and develop some of the earliest forms of group health insurance in the '60s. We were there in the '70s and '80s when the TPA industry took hold and expanded rapidly. When federal legislation threatened to make the industry more cumbersome, we represented 200 TPAs (and five million of plan participants) at hearings before the U.S. Congress. We have counseled governments and think tanks, published numerous articles, and spoken extensively on topics of concern to TPAs, health insurers and managed care organizations.
TPA Network's principals and network of experts include professionals with a wide variety of backgrounds and decades of hands-on experience in the design, operation, management and marketing of large-scale administrative operations both in the U.S. and offshore, including extensive experience working with both small and large health insurers, TPAs, HMOs and other healthplan administration entities. Our principals and associates have started and operated TPAs, managed care organizations and business process outsourcing firms both in the U. S. and abroad.
We have advised and represented several allied service vendors to the industry and have performed numerous research, consulting, valuation and merger and acquisition assignments. And because we have business and/or personal relationships with the principals and executive management of more than 200 TPAs, PPOs, HMOs, and health insurers we are often engaged to facilitate introductions and negotiate deals.
Our clients have included a diverse group of health insurers, HMOs and Fortune 500’s with names such as Prudential, Fidelity Insurance Group, Xerox, New York Life, BCS Financial, Atlantis Health, UNYSIS, PMCS, Benefit Informatics, Global Excel, the American Healthcare Association, General de Seguros, HSBC Banco Bital and Computer Sciences Corporation to name a few. Our mergers and acquisition clients include the largest health insurers, TPAs and private equity firms.
Leveraging our role as respected industry veterans, in 2019, TPA Network created the Research Consortium for the purpose of faciliting independent research on emerging medical technologies and health innovations to assess their value, and guide their application, within an ERISA-regulated setting.
Successfully helping forward-thinking TPAs achieve their goals -- since 1985
