Allied National, one of the nation’s oldest and most experienced third party administrator, in partnership with Munich Re (A.M. Best A+ Superior) is gaining wide acceptance in the brokerage community with their Provider Freedom group health plans.

The Provider Freedom Plan allows participants to seek medical care from any provider of choice. Facilities are reimbursed on a cost plus basis while medical professionals are paid based on usual and customary fees. Groups as few as five employee lives or as many as 600 employee lives may apply for the program.

Fees and fixed costs are some of the lowest we have seen in the industry.

Allied National representatives are conducting broker seminars, experiencing record high attendance among health insurance professionals. A recent seminar in South Texas attracted 56 attendees, while another attracted over 70.

Utilizing a self-funded platform, the Provider Freedom plan provides solid stop loss protection including no lasers, extended benefit periods, immediate advancement, as well as other attractive features.

Allied National guarantees no balance billing as all claims are settled based on plan parameters with stop loss cover support.
