Volume 9, Issue 21: The Kempton Group, TPA of Self-funded Employer-sponsored Benefit Plans Since 1969

Volume 9, Issue 21

Dear Colleagues,

This month our spotlight interview highlights Joseph “Jay” Kempton, Jr., President and CEO of The Kempton Group, a Third-Party Administrator (TPA) of self-funded employer-sponsored benefit plans since 1969.

In this exclusive interview, Kempton shares his perspectives on the changing role that a TPA plays in the ever-changing health landscape. It’s fascinating to see how he started the Kempton Premier Provider™ program with a true belief in transparency and a genuine desire to change how employers and participants view and purchase healthcare.

This issue also examines the importance of medical travel companions and their critical role as patient caregivers.  We also look at reasons why Japanese lawmakers are pushing for legislation to ban medical tourism to China for organ transplants; how Shija Hospitals are setting up the first ever “Health City” in Manipur; Italy’s new focus on medical tourism; as well as the best dental tourism in Central America — and much more.

It also gives me great pleasure to announce that I will be a featured speaker during the upcoming SIIA International Conference in Monterrey, Mexico April 17-19, 2018. This is an event set to highlight self-insurance business development and partnership opportunities in Latin America. I look forward to reporting my experience at SIIA’s International Conference to our readers.

And finally, the 2018 Health Datapalooza event: I am pleased to invite you to this incredible event and attend the panel representing the interests of jumbo, large and mid-size employers, healthcare purchasing coalitions and their hospital/healthcare partners.  I will be serving as a moderator on Thursday April 26, 2018 in Washington, DC. I hope to see you there!
