Boston January 28, 2013 Indigo Insurance Services, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, today announced it has added health care compliance services to its growing suite of Stop-Loss coverage benefits. Through a new partnership with Enquiron, a leading provider of high-touch consultative solutions for employers nationwide, Indigo will help businesses that self-fund health care for their employees navigate the labyrinth of related laws and regulations.
A changing health care environment, coupled with government reform efforts, has made employee health and welfare benefits increasingly complex. Employers face more than 50 different employment law issues involving hiring, termination, discrimination, and family medical leave not to mention national health care reform, continued health insurance for former employees, workplace safety, and much more.
"Self-insured clients currently use our stop-loss coverage to mitigate their financial risks," said John Miranda, Production Underwriter for Indigo Insurance Services. "With compliance services from Enquiron, they can minimize their exposure to undue legal and regulatory risks, as well."
Enquiron's consultative health care compliance approach combines legal advice with online tools and resources, not only for the employer, but for brokers and third-party administrators as well. Compliance attorneys will answer employers' legal and compliance questions while guiding them through new laws and regulations.
According to Enquiron President and CEO Jim McSherry, "We have been providing legal and compliance services to employers including owners of main street businesses to CEOs, CFOs, in-house General Counsel and Human Resource professionals at larger organizations over the past 17 years. Our mission is to: Put risk in its place."
