October 25, 2012-CHN PPO Network Providers offered exclusive discount on medical malpractice insurance
Hamilton, NJ (October 25 2012) Consumer Health Network PPO (CHN PPO), a URAC-accredited network of over 125,000 health care providers, is pleased to introduce an exclusive partnership with NJ PURE, a not-for-profit reciprocal medical malpractice exchange.
Under a new agreement, health care providers in the CHN PPO network can now receive medical malpractice insurance at a 10 percent discount from NJ PURE's already competitive rates.
"CHN values the outstanding providers in our PPO network and we are dedicated to adding value to their practices," said Michael A. Morrone, chief executive officer. "I am particularly excited about this partnership because it provides a critical service while rewarding our providers for meeting CHN PPO's rigorous quality control standards," he added.
A not-for-profit reciprocal exchange reinsured by various "A" rated AM Best reinsurers, NJ PURE maintains lower rates by eliminating agent and broker commissions. Backed by more than a decade of industry experience, NJ PURE offers free consultative risk management and loss control techniques to its policyholders.
Eric Poe, principal of NJ PURE, said, "CHN PPO's highly credentialed provider network directly aligns with NJ PURE's approach of reducing risk by insuring only responsible doctors and proactively helping them improve their risk management processes. We look forward to working with CHN PPO providers to provide superior quality medical malpractice insurance at stable, affordable rates."
This is the third partnership forged by CHN PPO to provide select cost-saving opportunities to its network providers. Other partners include Aesbar medical and Windstream Communications.
