Surgery Center Network (SCN), the network of ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs), has partnered with Gallagher Healthcare to provide its members with a property, casualty and medical malpractice rate estimator, discounted insurance rates and other related services.
"SCN offers a cutting-edge networking model for ASCs by improving the accessibility and transparency between surgery centers, patients and insurance companies," said Cody Vicknair, a Gallagher Healthcare Advisor.
"In selecting Gallagher Healthcare for these exclusive brokerage services, SCN recognizes that our financial size and geographic footprint create strong market leverage with both regional and national medical professional liability insurance carriers."
Through the partnership, SCN members gain access to Gallagher Healthcare's ‘Premium Indication Engine,’ a proprietary physician management system that provides ASCs and their physicians with the ability to utilize online rating software to establish a firm estimate of program premium cost based on the profile of their practice.
SCN members will also have access through an exclusive portal to Gallagher's value-add services, including insurance intelligence data and analytics from Advisen, and direct contact to a dedicated team of healthcare insurance and risk management specialists.
"The partnership with Gallagher Healthcare provides ASCs with yet another benefit of becoming a member of the growing SCN network," said Jeff Blankinship, President of SCN. "Not only do Network members increase their exposure and ability for new patients and payor customers, but now they have access to the medical malpractice estimator and many other valuable Gallagher services. The collaboration between Gallagher and SCN represents the first in many partnerships SCN will announce in the coming months that will significantly expand the breadth of beneficial services provided through the network."
