Broker Guy Carpenter has launched a US healthcare & life specialty practice set to focus exclusively on the unique needs of health providers and insurers in this evolving segment.
The practice will consist of a team of more than 50 health, healthcare and life broking professionals and actuaries.
“The US healthcare insurance environment is undergoing rapid and profound changes, especially with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act,” said Andrew Marcell, managing director and chief executive officer of US operations at Guy Carpenter.
“With previously independent coverages converging and new exposures emerging, and to better help our clients adapt to these challenges, Guy Carpenter has integrated its life, accident & health and medical professional liability specialties to form the healthcare & life specialty practice.
“Guy Carpenter is singularly focused on this evolving and specialized market, and is committed to offering clients seamless and innovative coverage solutions across the health, healthcare, life and accident continuum.”
David Rains, co-leader of the healthcare & life specialty practice at Guy Carpenter, added: “Healthcare provider roles have been redefined, medical insurers are facing unprecedented changes and specialty benefits insurers are reacting to tremendous potential challenges in how benefits are sold and distributed. Our team provides all our clients with the world-class expertise, strategic advice and practical solutions they need to reach their full growth and profit potential.”
