International private medical insurance company, HCC Medical Insurance Services (HCCMIS)
, has recently contracted CMN
Inc. to handle administration for healthcare provider networks.
By using CMN's services as a Third Party Administrator (TPA), HCC Medical Insurance Services seeks to add to the resources and services that it offers to policyholders both internationally and in North America. HCCMIS can now offer clients access to CMN's international medical network, including more than 400,000 doctors and 7,000 medical treatment facilities spread throughout 130 countries worldwide.
Other benefits resulting from the tie-up include more useful online tools for members such as a healthcare provider search engine on their website, and direct billing for international healthcare providers meaning that policyholders of HCCMIS international medical insurance policies will not have to submit a claim for reimbursement when receiving treatment. Domestic North American clients of HCCMIS will also have increased in-network options that will help reduce or remove coinsurance payments.
The CEO of HCCMIS, Mark Carney said that "This expansion of services for our customers through improving efficiencies and access to leading doctors and facilities around the world has reinforced our commitment to being the industry's international health insurance choice by consumers and business partners."
