Third Party Administrator source list.


We did a little something different for this year's third party administrator source list. We decided to leverage the exhaustive research expertise offered by our colleagues over at Judy Diamond Associates--especially since they just wrapped up a comprehensive census of the marketplace, which includes more than 1,200 companies. Since we obviously didn't have that much space, we came up with a formula for whittling down the list to the top 250. You'll find them listed alphabetically on the following pages. To come up with these top 250, we used a combination of employee size, number of physical locations, number of clients, revenue and claims processed, and came up with the following. Because we looked at so many data elements, it's impossible to actually rank them from Nos. 1 to 250. For the full list, go to
