GB has boosted its size and offering in New Zealand by buying Care Advantage.
Care Advantage has been the specialist injury management division of Southern Cross Medical Care Society and from now on operates as Gallagher Bassett Care Advantage.
Care Advantage is a third party provider for employers accredited under New Zealand’s Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) Accredited Employer Partnership (AEP) program.
The operation provides injury claims management, case management, reporting and administration services for New Zealand employers - the workplace injury needs of more than 40,000 employees.
GB has a long history of working in the New Zealand market and has been a provider of off-shore claims administration services to the Earthquake Commission for more than 10 years, handling thousands of claims.
Gallagher Bassett’s Managing Director Jon Winsbury said the acquisition of Care Advantage would strengthen the company’s offer to the New Zealand business market.
