What is a Third Party Administrator?
A third party administrator concentrates on running benefit plans so employers can concentrate on running their business! We design, implement, and manage employee benefits programs. Benveo carefully selects provider networks and ancillary service providers for each plan. We process claims, publish plan documents, create and distribute plan ID cards, and handle customer service for plan members. We also ensure benefit plans are compliant with federal regulations. Our clients are provided with relevant benefit information and reports on plan utilization, claims, and performance to help identify cost drivers, manage costs, and meet goals.
Benveo puts control back into the hands of the employer-sponsored health plan or association plan.
Our Goal is simple: Create a platform for employers to make informed decisions about how to best care for their unique employee mix.
Our Mission is to put joy and satisfaction into healthcare benefits.

What is Benveo?
Benveo is an approach to healthcare benefits that employs innovation and insight to craft customized healthcare solutions for a modern workforce.
What makes Benveo special?
Benveo integrates with best in class vendors of healthcare services to provide a comprehensive patient centric service offering. What makes this API driven application so special is the coordination of care and the real-time tracking of
out-of-pocket costs, deductibles and annual maximums.
Finally, Benveo outcomes extend well beyond financial or data coordination to a ground-breaking care solution at the fingertips of every employee, family member and benefit coordinators.
Has Benveo abandoned traditional self-funding?
Benveo is a break away from traditional models of insurance.
PBA West still manages large employer-sponsored healthcare through our partner in Chicago. Our Tulsa office focuses on the unique needs of the small to midsize employee group who would benefit from a modern custom approach to healthcare plan offerings or an association health plan.
Why is Benveo needed in the small group market?
Benveo offers a level of service, communication and connection to the plan sponsor usually reserved for only the largest organizations. A true focus on “Main Street” business makes Benveo one of a kind.
