Capitol Administrators Chooses Planwatch to Enhance Benefit Management Strategies

Stow, OHProServe Health Informatics announced a definitive agreement with Capitol Administrators to utilize the complete Planwatch reporting package as a solution to assist in the discovery, verification and adjustment of detailed claim information. This value added service provides Capitol Administrators’ broker partners/plan sponsors with the resources necessary to monitor and maximize a plans performance while minimizing plan expenditures.

“At Capitol Administrators, we felt we needed to change our standard report package to be more of an informative nature instead of just presenting data. We felt our clients and consultants needed a better high level overview of their benefit plans in an easy to understand presentation format and a simpler method to depict areas of the plan that may need attention”, said David Reynolds, President and CEO of Capitol Administrators. “At the same time, we wanted to offer both modeling and trending capabilities, to allow for improved planning for future benefit changes and their respective impact. Our reporting team felt that Planwatch offered the tools we needed to provide our brokers and consultants the power needed to make the analysis of their respective plans less cumbersome.”

“We are pleased to welcome Capitol Administrators into our family of Third Party Administrator partners,” said Georgeann Seuffert, Vice President of Sales at Planwatch. “By decreasing the amount of time required to access valuable detailed claim information, Capitol Administrators and their broker partners are able to spend more time with plan sponsors on proactive cost containment solutions and plan modifications. We look forward to providing them with the greatest access to health care cost information.”

Planwatch’s newest feature, Risk Analysis/Disclosure Reporting, will also be added to Capitol’s reporting portfolio. Capitol recognizes the key to an effective disclosure process is finding the balance between too much and not enough claim information. Risk Analysis allows for the most up-to-date, accurate, disclosure and provides detailed reporting with drill down capabilities, to help identify the diagnosis of large claimants.
