Why Choose Migdon Allen Associates

Some businesses think it does not really matter where they buy their insurance. But this misconception could be costing them money, service and protection. Health Insurance is one of the largest expenses that an employer pays and it is increasing at a rate significantly higher than most other expenses. Therefore it is imperative for an employer to evaluate the many options available to provide the most cost effective health insurance possible..

Renewal Process:

Usually six months before the contracts expire MAA meets with the client to describe the current marketplace and the different kinds of plans available and the funding mechanisms available. The report then details preliminary ideas on how benefit plans can be redesigned in the most cost effective way. The approximate percentage savings are listed for each plan design change recommendation. MAA and the client then identify which of the recommendations make the most sense and MAA prepares a comprehensive explanation of each of these potential changes. MAA then meets with the Client to review the proposed changes in detail, making certain that the client agrees to these specific plan design changes. MAA then makes themselves available for any meetings to provide expert advice specific to the plan design changes and the cost associated with these changes.

Claims Administration:

The Account Representative would assist a member with an escalated claim issue, should the member not receive an adequate response. The Account Representative would intercede by contacting the insurance company on behalf of the member and in some situations (with the members permission) contact the physician for additional information. The Account Representative is also available to help interpret the explanation of benefits received by the insurance carrier. In certain circumstances the Account Representative would assist the member with a formal appeal.

Plan Document Review:

MAA conducts a thorough review of all plan documents including the contract as they pertain to the following:

  • Deductible and Coinsurance
  • Copayments
  • Overall Plan Design
  • Benefit limitations
  • Dependent Age
  • Eligible Dependents
  • Waiting Periods
  • Effective date of terminations
  • Billing
  • Premiums

MAA does not offer legal advice and therefore we recommend that your attorney review the contract for the legal implications.
