 Kelsey-Seybold and Boon-Chapman Announce Partnership to Deliver ?KelseyCare?

16 de Enero de 2013

Kelsey-Seybold Clinic, the nation?s first accountable care organization

accredited by the National Committee for Quality Assurance, and

Boon-Chapman, a Texas-based third-party administrator of employee

benefits, announced a partnership to deliver Kelsey-Seybold?s

?KelseyCare? health benefits plan to partially self-funded employers in

the Greater Houston area with 50 or more covered employees.

KelseyCare has been offered to Houston-area employers for more than six

years and delivers high-quality care that is on average 15 to 30 percent

lower in total cost when compared to other health plans in the greater

Houston area.

?Our organizations are combining expertise to offer a high-quality

self-funded health benefits plan to Houston employers,? said Spencer

Berthelsen, M.D., Chairman and Managing Director, Kelsey-Seybold. ?We

are pleased to offer KelseyCare to employers through a well-respected

third party administrator which has served Texas employers since 1961.

Employers will receive high value, improved cost savings and healthcare

quality through KelseyCare administered by Boon-Chapman.?

As a part of the KelseyCare health plan benefits design, Boon-Chapman

will provide employers with member services, claims administration,

comprehensive eligibility systems and stop-loss coverage. Additionally,

employers will have the opportunity to offer employees a variety of

KelseyCare benefit plans including a KelseyCare ?Point of Sale? plan, a

KelseyCare ?Deductible? plan and the KelseyCare ?No Deductible? plan.

?Our success has been built by providing a very high level of

personalized service to meet the needs of our clients,? said Kevin

Chapman, President and Chief Executive Officer, Boon-Chapman. ?Our

clients are looking for a plan design that delivers value for the

dollars spent and Kelsey-Seybold?s KelseyCare benefits plan has an

impressive history of achieving real value for employers and members.?

The KelseyCare Health Benefits Plan shows consistent high performance on

three critical indicators: financial performance, clinical quality and

enrollee satisfaction. An independent benchmarking survey of health

plans in the Greater Houston area has awarded KelseyCare top scores in

clinical quality and financial efficiency for six years. The 2010

Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) survey,

which independently surveys health plan members on their experiences

with all major health plans in the greater Houston area, has rated

KelseyCare among the best in four overall categories:Health Plan,

Healthcare, Personal Doctor and Specialist.

This new healthcare option is the ideal solution for employers looking

to manage benefits costs while continuing to provide employees with

quality healthcare focused on prevention, convenience and affordability.

Employers can enroll in KelseyCare administered by Boon-Chapman now for

a March 1, 2013 effective date.

Kelsey-Seybold and Cigna Healthcare of Texas will continue their

longstanding affiliation to offer KelseyCare powered by Cigna to

Houston-based employers on both a fully insured and self-funded basis.
