Who We Are

Our Mission

Our Purpose

HealthCare Solutions Group (HSG) has been providing  “Solutions Based” administrative services to self-funded  employer health plans since 1978.  HSG is 100% employee owned and operated.  As an employee-owned company, every member of our firm is committed to providing exemplary service to our customers.


Our outstanding customer service is complimented with our innovative  approaches to plan design, cost reduction and risk management.  We understand the impact that your benefit plan makes on your business and we are committed to providing quality solutions to these challenges.


With an ever-changing health care landscape,  increased health care costs are a major concern for all of us.  We work with you to design a plan that delivers quality health care to your employees while still controlling your health care costs.

Our mission is simple . . . “Help others get what they want or need. . .”  We understand that managing your health plan is more than just processing claims.  We listen carefully to your concerns and address these issues with innovative and creative solutions.  Our goal is to take the frustration out of health care by improving outcomes and  reducing costs.

As a trusted partner in your health care needs, our purpose is to provide the highest degree of service.  Our model is based on personalized service and “one call resolution”.  What this means for the plan member is direct access to the individual who services their account – whether it be eligibility, plan benefits, or claims.

Meet the Management Team

Our management team has over 125 years of combined experience in the self-funded employer benefit plan arena.  Our combined expertise encompasses all aspects of our business.  This allows us to work effectively in providing the best solutions to your health care needs.
