Great Point Partners announced that United Claim Solutions, a GPP II portfolio company, has acquired Tampa, Florida-based INETICO. INETICO focuses on providing health care cost containment services to self-funded, third party administrator and stop-loss clients across the United States and Puerto Rico. The addition of INETICO brings additional resources and capabilities to UCS and will augment its suite of payment integrity solutions.
“UCS’ acquisition of INETICO expands our service offering and further deepens our commitment to the highest level of customer service when addressing our clients’ needs,” Josh Carder, CEO of UCS, stated. “The addition of INETICO brings us a great team, led by Founder, CEO, and industry veteran, Joe Hodges. Joe has a record of exceptional service, products and quality in the payment integrity industry.”
“UCS and INETICO joining forces will help drive innovation in the payment integrity market. The addition of INETICO will add care management and new repricing services to UCS, and will help UCS continue to drive down health care costs for our clients,” added Noah Rhodes, Managing Director at Great Point Partners.
“We believe that together, our two companies will create a leader in payment integrity solutions. Our goal is to work with our self-insured, TPA and stop-loss clients to create a one-stop shop for their cost containment needs. UCS’ savings rates and innovative solutions combined with INETICO’s care and negotiation services will be a driving force in the industry,” commented Joe Hodges, Founder of INETICO.
