St. Louis, Missouri (PRWEB) August 30, 2017
Intalere, the healthcare industry leader in delivering optimal cost, quality and clinical outcomes, today announced the new Intalere Insurance Services subsidiary which brings comprehensive insurance services to members through partnerships with market segment leaders Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. and Myron Steves.
“Our combined teams of experts bring unparalleled programs, levels of service, and the innovation needed to keep pace with the ever-emerging risks and increasing costs associated with healthcare,” said Jim Wilson, Intalere chief strategy officer. “Providing innovative solutions means more options, broader coverage terms and lower total costs. By partnering with these industry leaders, we can deliver solutions for all insurance needs.”
The collaboration with Myron Steves Healthcare and Atlantic Security Brokers (ASL), Ltd. will provide members an alternative to purchasing professional liability through the open market placement. The Healthcare Excess Liability Program (HELP) is a vehicle that Myron Steves and ASL have formed for the purpose of providing catastrophic excess liability insurance coverage to hospitals/health systems at an affordable cost.
HELP provides an additional $50M in coverage excess of a minimum of $15M already in place. It protects the health system’s balance sheet by providing larger limits in the event the system has a catastrophic loss and are required to pay a large settlement to the patient or the patient’s family.
“Unfortunately, it only takes one event to put a provider in a deep financial bind,” said Becky Thomson, director, Myron Steves Healthcare. “Our pricing is well below current market standard, with providers generally paying 30% to 100% more if they were to purchase coverage on their own outside of this program.”
