York Public Entity, a Division of York Risk Services Group, announced that its Orange, CA, office received the highest ranking of any third party administrator (TPA) in the 2013 Profile Audit Review (PAR) Audit report recently released by the California Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC). York Public Entity is a leading provider of claims and risk management services to more than 6,000, public entities, many of them in California.
Each year the California DWC measures the claims handing performance of third party administrators, self-insureds and insurers against performance standards set annually by the DWC. Each audit includes a review of a random selection of indemnity and denied claims for each organization being evaluated. For each year’s assessments, the DWC designates a standard score which was required to pass an audit. Scores lower than the designated score indicate superior performance. The 2013 PAR Standard score was 1.70104 and York’s Orange office received a score of .30363, which was the 4th best score for the 70 audits conducted in 2013 and the highest score of any TPA.
"This score and ranking is a testament to the expertise of our examiners and our entire organization’s commitment to providing top quality claims management services to our clients,” said Jody Gray, President of York Public Entity. “Our ongoing investment in finding, retaining developing the best claims management talent helps us deliver excellent outcomes for the injured workers and for the wide range of public entities we serve.”
York’s Sacramento office was also included in the 2013 audit, received a score of .90198, which was well above average.
“Given the importance of timely response to injured workers and prompt payment of claims, we make this a priority on every claim. We are proud of our PAR Audit scores and their recognition of the excellent service our examiners deliver every day,” noted Jon Pease, President of Workers’ Compensation claims for York’s Western Region
