Professional Affiliations

Mutual Assurance Administrators (MAA) believes that two minds are better than one. Keeping with that philosophy, we have developed relationships with some of the most progressive and admired third-party administrators (TPAs) in the country. These alliances continually raise the bar and allow for candid discussions regarding operations, systems, and industry trends. These long-standing relationships continue to impact our point of reference. MAA is proud to maintain active membership in the following industry organizations:

HEALTH CARE ADMINISTRATORS ASSOCIATION (HCAA)

The Health Care Administrators Association (HCAA) supports third party administrators through educational opportunities from leading industry experts.  Nationwide, HCAA members include TPAs, insurance carriers, managing general underwriters, audit firms, physician hospital organizations, broker/agents, human resource managers and health care consultants.  No other organization offers more powerful connections through networking, events, and informal relationships. HCAA is the preferred resource for healthcare claims administrators to stay on the forefront of industry and business issues while enjoying an open exchange of ideas. Our President and CEO, Todd Archer, is a past President and current Board Member for HCAA. 

SOCIETY OF PROFESSIONAL BENEFIT ADMINISTRATORS (SPBA)

SPBA is an organization made up of over 400 TPAs operating all over the United States. Members of the MAA staff have spoken numerous times at the SPBA’s national conferences.

QUBIC

QUBIC is a nationwide alliance of independent health care benefit administrators united by common telecommunications, computer, and software systems. Formally associated through a corporation named QUBIC, Inc. the members share the philosophy of business excellence, committing their companies to provide the highest-quality services to their clients. QUBIC strategically combines large-company capability with small-company response to research, develop, and implement market-driven programs that anticipate customer business needs. The organization also provides backup for its members in the event of disasters. MAA is a founding member of QUBIC.

NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF EMPLOYEE BENEFIT ADMINISTRATORS (NAEBA)

NAEBA promotes networking of personnel, plan administration, and joint purchasing of information materials. This organization has also contracted with a national PPO organization to provide managed care opportunities for multi-state companies. The negotiated agreement with NAEBA allows members to take advantage of large group discounts since the NAEBA membership covers in excess of 4,000,000 employee lives. MAA is a founding member of NAEBA.

THE TECHNOLOGY GROUP (TTG)

TTG is a group formed to educate its members on the technology solutions and operating procedures available in today’s benefit administration arena. A small membership of less than 20 members allows the interaction and sharing needed to fully utilize the vast knowledge of its members.

PHARMACY BENEFIT MANAGEMENT INSTITUTE (PBMI)

PBMI is an institute to educate and interact with peers within the Pharmacy Benefit Industry. This group serves MAA in many capacities. MAA participates for the sole reason of finding relief for our clients rising drug costs.

SELF-INSURANCE INSTITUTE OF AMERICA (SIIA)

SIIA is the only national association dedicated exclusively to protecting and promoting the self-insurance risk-financing alternative for both group health plans and workers' compensation programs. Major membership constituencies include self-insured employers (healthcare and workers' compensation), group self-insured workers' compensation funds (SIFs), third-party administrators (TPAs), managing general underwriters (MGUs), excess/stop-loss insurance carriers and a variety of other companies involved in the alternative risk financing business. SIIA provides membership services in four primary areas: information, education, networking and legislative/regulatory representation. The scope of membership, topics and conferences has proved to be invaluable for MAA.

INTERNATIONAL FOUNDATION OF EMPLOYEE BENEFIT PLANS (IFEBP)

IFEBP is the nation’s largest educational association serving the employee benefits and compensation industry. The International Foundation has served as the premier source of education and information to the industry. And because the International Foundation is a nonprofit, non-lobbying organization, we have come to rely on it for objective, accurate and timely information.
