As part of the multi-year relationship, IGATE will implement transformational technology and best practice processes to advance the evolution of CNA's current operations in the Long Term Care (LTC) business. Through a collaborative process, CNA will design and implement a new operating model for claim and policyholder administrative services. The Company will administer CNA's LTC business through its proprietary and differentiated IGATE Business Administrative Solution (IBAS).
Sanjay Tugnait, Executive Vice President and Head of Americas, IGATE, said, "This is indeed a transformational engagement and a significant milestone for both organizations. The IBAS solution integrates technology, analytics and our experience in the LTC processes, delivering a transformational operating model to CNA, with enhanced operational efficacy and within a fully customer-centric environment."
Commenting on IGATE's IBAS solution, Sanjay added, "Over the last few months, we have been investing in our Third Party Administration business to build an innovative platform to manage LTC business. We are seeing a strong validation of our IBAS solution among other carriers as we continue to positively impact their business imperatives. IGATE secured the multi-year deal, the largest transaction in the company's history, through a competitive process involving several leading industry players. The solution, currently being offered to the U.S. and Canadian clients as an industry solution, is eventually intended to service global carriers as well."
As part of the relationship, IGATE will provide key claim support, policyholder services, and customer service, while CNA will be responsible for claim eligibility and decision-making.
