Starr Global Accident & Health Insurance Agency has selected data analysis solutions from Benefit Informatics to assess their risk and evaluate underwriting opportunities. The data analysis solution provides online access to utilization information for the underwriting process.

According to Benefit Informatics, the underwriters evaluating employer’s health plan can analyze data at the plan level or drill-down to trigger diagnosis, procedures or individual utilization by high claimants. The new offering also helps Starr Global to monitor or be alerted to claimant activity throughout the year to identify medical management opportunities for plan members.

Starr Global has access to plan and utilization information at several levels. Underwriters can review data from all customers through a book of business view, analyze data from individual TPAs or drill-down to employers and plan members.

James Denison, executive vice president for Starr Global Accident & Health, said: “We are very pleased to have this level of information available to our underwriters. Because Benefit Informatics works closely with our TPA customers, their solutions give us an enhanced level of access to data which results in a more efficient underwriting process.”
