Professional Benefits Services Chooses United Claim Solutions WatchDog’s Real Time Data and Risk Analysis Tool

Phoenix, Arizona July 27, 2010 – Professional Benefits Services (PBS) implemented United Claim Solutions (UCS) private labeled reporting product, WatchDog, to offer clients an in-depth real time claim analysis, disclosure reporting and plan modeling application. In today’s volatile healthcare market, this private labeled product, using the Planwatch platform, will streamline the reporting process and provide Professional Benefits Services with the resources necessary to monitor and maximize a plan’s performance while minimizing plan expenditures.

“Our smaller to mid-sized TPA clients came to us looking for a high quality data and risk application that was affordable yet user friendly”, said Joshua Carder, President of United Claim Solutions. “With the level of sophistication our proprietary system brings to our clients, it was imperative to bring a private labeled data and risk analysis application of the same quality to the table. By piecing the healthcare puzzle together, our clients now can monitor the claim from billing to payment to reporting to help fight against the never ending insurance cycle”.

“Over the course of three years, PBS has been actively searching for a user friendly reporting package that includes the capability of producing real time reporting and plan modeling for our customers. United Claims Solutions listened and brought WatchDog under their umbrella of services”, said Tom Gottlick, Professional Benefits Services Vice President of Operations.

“The uniqueness of the WatchDog reporting tool is it utilizes weekly claim loads versus just once a year. Our clients and brokers love the fact they can access this data within minutes at anytime and from any location and not have to wait for yearly updates for this vital information. The plan modeling tool has helped our customers on several occasions to achieve a zero increase renewal due to the ability to share actual plan modification savings to our stop loss partners. The staff at UCS and WatchDog is incredible. They have brought my three year journey to an end which has allowed me to focus and grow my block of business.”
