Preliminary Claim Unit (PCU)

The Preliminary Claim Unit (PCU) is responsible for receiving early notification of potential stop loss claims via 50% notices, large case management reports and pre-certification data. With early notification of potentially high dollar expenses, PCU works to identify which expenses could be reduced. Any reduction in costs will help reduce costs for the plan and stop loss carrier.

The PCU staff works with payors to explore repricing options in order to reduce plan costs. PCU assists with out-of-network claims, claims with questionable charges, network claims with minimal discounts and/or excess charges, and charges for ongoing treatments, such as dialysis, high cost infusions, chemotherapy, radiation, etc.

PCU staff also contacts payors for information such as current course of treatment and claims paid/pended to date information to establish potential liability for both reserving needs and underwriting.

Specialty Claim Unit (SCU)

The Specialty Claim Unit (SCU) is one of Tokio Marine HCC - Stop Loss Group's valued-added stop loss resources for cost containment to the plan via early case intervention. Through partnerships with payors, Case Managers and employer groups, Tokio Marine HCC - Stop Loss Group's team of dedicated professionals can provide access to preferred vendors. Excellent outcomes and effective cost containment are dependent on early notification.


Transplantation has more than doubled in the last seven years. In an effort to combat high costs, Tokio Marine HCC - Stop Loss Group has developed strategic alliances and established preferred rates with the leading transplant networks throughout the USA. Partnering with these networks provides:

  • Policyholders the ability to offer more choices to their employees
