Covington, Louisiana (PRWEB) July 23, 2009
In a day when third party administrators (TPAs) are being rapidly acquired by large corporations and carriers alike, Gilsbar has successfully established itself as one of the country's largest and most respected privately held TPAs for the last 50 years. By constantly evolving with a changing marketplace, Gilsbar has been able to become a thought leader in the association and benefits management space and deliver unanticipated solutions to its national client base.

With regard to employee benefits, Gilsbar has focused on total population health management, and not just claims management. With this focus, Gilsbar is able to drive increased employee engagement and productivity, helping clients to control their health plans, and ultimately, control rising costs.
