Out- Of- Network Negotiations

In response to the escalating health care costs the company has developed an out-of-network secondary network


  • Discounts on non-network claims that would normally be paid at retail.
  • Claims data is sent through our various secondary network providers for network repricing.
  • The discounting of out-of-network claims reduces the out-of-pocket cost to the plan participants

Administrative fee is usually a percentage of savings (30%) however; the transplant network is usually a flat access fee which is generally an allowable charge under the Stop Loss policy
