Leading Edge was formed in April 2010 with the goal of offering a wider array of options to plan sponsors responsible for the efficient operation of their plans. To achieve this, we set out to become an independent payer‐advocate with the flexibility to truly act in the best interests of our clients ‐ avoiding the inherent conflicts of carrier‐owned TPAs, or ASO relationships (where the network is the TPA).
We have deep relationships with many of the major national networks (Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Multiplan, etc.) as well as many regional networks and other alternative network solutions. This access gives us the ability to select the network solutions which best matches the needs of each client, allowing us to find that "sweet spot" of the right combination of cost containment and participant coverage.
Built from the ground up on leading edge proprietary auditing and claims processing technology, our Health Benefits Administration is staffed by seasoned industry professionals. Our specialized abilities in stop-loss sourcing, pharmaceutical benefit management, and proven cost-containment protocols provide our clients with perpetually optimized program strategies. Leading Edge provides the capabilities of top-tier insurance companies while still focusing attention on maintaining intimate and highly responsive customer service.
Our first client was a Taft‐Hartley union benefit fund, with over 300 participating employers and seven plan designs across nearly 3,000 employee lives. Since then, our family of valued clients has grown to well over 100 self‐insured entities, representing nearly 100,000 insured lives, in a wide range of areas including labor unions, educational institutions, manufacturing companies, retail stores, home health care agencies, and many other unique niches.
