Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) March 02, 2012
Beginning March 1, Medcom will begin offering a full portfolio of health and welfare actuarial services for employers. “The employee benefit brokers that we serve are the driving force behind our expansion into actuarial consulting,” said Michael J. Bracken, President of Medcom. “Due to the combined forces of escalating healthcare costs and the complexities of healthcare reform legislation, insurance brokers have asked for a deeper and more affordable set of analytical tools to help support their clients. Medcom is ideally positioned to provide affordable actuarial services for our partners in the employee benefits brokerage community.”
Medcom announced that it will offer a wide range of actuarial services, including the following:
- COBRA certification for HRAs and self-funded plans
- HRA plan design modeling
- Insurance renewal underwriting evaluations
- Review of health coverage financing options
- IBNR reserve calculations
- PPACA (healthcare reform) “pay or play” modeling

“With increased interest in self-funding and a growing uncertainty about the impact of new healthcare legislation, benefit brokers and employers are seeking clear, reliable answers that will help them make sound business decisions,” noted Medcom’s Consulting Actuary, Brad Vernon. Vernon is a fellow of the Society of Actuaries (FSA) and a member of the American Academy of Actuaries (MAAA) with years of industry experience behind him. “We are offering a simplified menu of services specifically designed to provide mid-sized employers with the clarifying answers they are seeking,” he said.
Medcom will offer actuarial services through employee benefit brokers throughout the U.S. Tina Craft, who manages the Employee Benefits Department at Orlando-based Insurance Office of America, welcomes the new offerings from Medcom. “As IOA expands our employee benefit practice nationally and into the larger employer arena, having access to affordable actuarial services will enable us to support our clients in a more strategic manner. Working with a trusted partner like Medcom is a natural fit for us.”
