Tokio Marine HCC Announces Innovative Solution for Managing Air Ambulance Expenses

Tuesday, May 14, 2019

Tokio Marine HCC today announced an innovative solution for managing escalating air ambulance charges for its stop loss customers. Tokio Marine HCC – Stop Loss Group (TMHCC – Stop Loss Group) is providing access to cost containment capabilities through a partnership with On Call International (On Call), a wholly owned subsidiary of Tokio Marine HCC.

TMHCC – Stop Loss Group strives to provide a one-stop resource for its producers and their clients. Therefore, in addition to offering stop loss products, TMHCC – Stop Loss Group is extending to its producers access to the cost containment capabilities of On Call. And while its producers can access On Call’s services for all of their clients, only their TMHCC – Stop Loss Group’s policyholders can receive On Call’s services at discounted rates.

With more than 20 years of experience in coordinating air ambulance evacuations, On Call utilizes a proprietary network of preferred providers, which allows them to pass in network cost savings on to their clients, members and partners without the fear of large unknown costs or patient balance billing, outside of normal cost sharing requirements.

“Increasing catastrophic medical claims are causing our customers to seek solutions for controlling the rising costs associated with employee benefit coverage. At TMHCC –Stop Loss Group, helping our customers understand and control these costs is our top priority. By partnering with our sister organization, On Call International, we are delivering one such solution focused on managing the cost of air ambulance evacuations via access to On Call’s proprietary network of preferred air ambulance providers,” said Daniel A. Strusz, TMHCC – Stop Loss Group’s President and Chief Executive Officer.
