ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Jan. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — SUNZ Insurance Company announced their partnership with GlobalOptions today. GlobalOptions provides fraud protection to a variety of companies through their progressive Special Investigations Unit (SIU) Program.
SUNZ, a five-year veteran in the insurance industry, offers unique workers’ compensation solutions to Professional Employer Organizations (PEOs) and staffing companies. Throughout the past year, SUNZ has grown substantially, as they have increased their coverage area to a total of 13 states nationwide. With the expansion, the St. Petersburg-based company is now able to write policies along with the majority of the southern United States.
GlobalOptions, serviced by a nationwide network of dedicated professionals, provides fraud protection to insurance carriers, third-party administrators (TPAs), law firms, Fortune 500 companies and the general public. Through their partnership with GlobalOptions, SUNZ will gain access to their highly technologically advanced platform, GlobalTrak™. GlobalTrak is an investigative management and intelligence system that enables TPAs and insured parties to clearly examine and identify any potential for fraud, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Glen Distefano, Vice President and COO of SUNZ Insurance said, “The decision to move our SIU and investigative work to GlobalOptions was simple. Due to our recent expansion and national presence, GlobalOptions will better serve our insured’s needs and the needs of our TPAs. We can have peace of mind knowing that GlobalOptions’ team of highly-skilled individuals, and the advanced systems that are in place, will protect us around the clock.”
The SIU Program provides customers with a comprehensive package including plan development and filing, frequent communication with the claims department, documentation of all fraudulent claims, case preparation and training programs to better educate staff members on fraudulence.
Frank Pinder, President of GlobalOptions said, “From an industry perspective, the combination of SUNZ Insurance Company and GlobalOptions will result in shorter cycle times, higher quality services and staff, and improved policyholder satisfaction. We have the resources and experience to assume a key role in helping SUNZ manage its entire SIU and fraud claims process.”
The partnership between the two companies will solidify the relationship SUNZ holds with their existing clients, while also allowing them to continue to provide exceptional service.
Distefano added, “We strive to provide the best service to our PEO and staffing clients. GlobalOptions will provide an extra means of security to our clients, but can also help to prepare for a seamless investigation when and if the situation arises.”
