Adapt With Agility

Combining our thorough analysis with an understanding of your goals, we develop the “story” behind your reinsurance placement and help you view your program through the lens of the markets. We simplify the complex evaluation of structure and pricing options, using our proprietary models and metrics, to assist your selection of the optimal reinsurance program.

As the largest contributor to U.S. GDP, the healthcare industry is constantly evolving, growing and maturing.

Medical payers and providers are learning to adapt to new value-based care arrangements, increasing frequency of large claims due to specialty pharma and gene and cell therapies, competitive pressures from data-driven startups and an ever-present desire to improve medical outcomes while lowering costs.

Similar challenges face group benefits and specialty carriers, who are also keenly focused on product innovation and customer engagement to grow market share.

With our global reach and client base, the Accident and Health team is involved in mortality, morbidity and the ongoing pandemic, along with our Marsh and Mercer colleagues.
