Native American-Owned Insurance Firm Bringing HealthComp and Elixir to Expand Service Offerings for Indian Country
July 27, 2022 – Tribal Edge Insurance, a Native American-owned brokerage firm, is excited to announce it has selected preferred vendors HealthComp, a third-party administrator for self-funded health plans, and Elixir, a pharmacy benefits and services provider. These newly formed alliances will bring a more robust benefit offering to Indian Country.
“We are excited to offer these preferred vendors to Indian Country. HealthComp is the nation’s largest third-party administrator and can offer top notch services and care. Elixir, owned by Rite Aid, can bring lower drug costs and accessibility to medications.” said Ted McKenzie, Tribal Edge Administrator. “Access to these higher end services have been out of reach for too long in Indian Country. It’s a win - win for everyone.”
Healthcomp and Elixir both are enthusiastic to be a part of the change, bringing higher quality medical care to a population that has had a difficult time accessing and receiving treatment.
“At HealthComp, our mission is to provide innovative and affordable solutions that improve the quality of healthcare for members, clients, and providers.” said Justin Tran, Executive Vice President, Product Development for HealthComp. “We are committed to delivering affordable plans and compassionate service for as many members as possible. Knowing that they have been historically underserved, it is our goal to become a trusted partner for the Tribal community.”
“Elixir is focused on helping our members achieve whole health for life. We are excited to partner with Tribal Edge in this endeavor because it aligns with our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) and serving those in underserved areas,” said Dustin Jones, Regional Vice President, Client Services for Elixir. “We believe in the value of unique perspectives and in serving members where they are. We look forward to serving members in Indian Country and partnering with the Tribal Edge team to bring thoughtful, innovative care to its members.”
