Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is a Third-Party Administrator?

A third-party administrator (TPA) is an independent company or entity that provides specialized services to organizations or employers in managing certain aspects of employee benefits and insurance programs. TPAs are typically hired to handle administrative tasks related to employee benefits and claims processing, which can be time-consuming and complex for employers to manage on their own.

What is the difference between an insurance company and a third-party administrator?

An insurance company assumes financial risk and issues insurance policies directly to policyholders. A third-party administrator (TPA) provides administrative services to employers for managing employee benefits but does not bear financial risk. TPAs process claims, handle enrollment, and offer customer service, while insurance companies handle underwriting and maintain financial reserves.
