GBG Assist Announces Acquisition Of Quality Health Management

iPMI Magazine Mergers and Acquisitions News: GBG Assist, the in-house Emergency Assistance and Claims Operation of Global Benefits Group has announced the acquisition of Quality Health Management, LLC (QHM), a third-party administrator and cost containment firm, to strengthen its service offerings.

Headquartered in Miami Lakes, Florida and founded in 2000, privately held QHM specializes in reducing the cost of medical expenses, offers provider network access in more than 80 countries. QHM provides customized patient assistance, primarily for international patients seeking care in the United States, as well as patients seeking care globally outside of their country of origin. Following this transaction, QHM’s Principals and their team will continue to serve their clients from their Florida office.

“QHM’s capabilities will integrate perfectly with those of GBG Assist,” stated Mr. Peter Lozier, CEO of GBG Assist. “QHM has strived to combine our caring approach with seeking to keep costs contained efficiently to the satisfaction of our clients,” said Ms. Barbara Sanchez, QHM principal, and co-founder. “Joining GBG Assist will allow us to expand upon those goals.”

“We have built a strong reputation for patient care and cost containment strategies but have been looking to leverage the strengths of a larger global organization to help expand these capabilities to their full potential. With GBG, we are excited about the ways they can provide additional global infrastructure and support,” added Patricia Ziomek, Principal, and Co-Founder of QHM.

The combined GBG Assist/QHM platform will be a leader in cost containment, bringing full control of customer service, claims, and all other insurance processes under a single roof. GBG will own all of its mission critical processes while at the same time enhancing the platform for third-party customers. GBG will continue to use both the GBG Assist and QHM brand names.

Policyholders from GBG will continue to receive services from GBG Assist; ASO and TPA services will be marketed under QHM.
