 NCHN Business Partner Features 



Employee Benefits and Property & Casualty Risk Management and Insurance Strategies and Solutions for Healthcare


As an NCHN partner, Parker, Smith & Feek will support NCHN's mission of supporting and strengthening health networks by providing insurance program auditing, risk management consulting, and insurance solutions relevant to health networks and their members. 


Parker, Smith & Feek is offering NCHN members a free self-insured employee benefits audit that includes a review of their current benefits plan structure compared to industry benchmarks and third-party administration, stop loss, and pharmacy benefits manager re-pricings.

Parker, Smith & Feek’s dedicated Healthcare Practice Group has over 40 years of experience addressing risk management and insurance strategies and solutions to help members examine both the cost and quality of their existing insurance programs. They recognize that tackling such a wide range of challenges for so many types of clients takes a very deep bench of talented risk management and insurance professionals and have assembled a team of experts to serve healthcare organizations. Their Healthcare Practice Group serves a vast array of clients, including assisted living centers, clinics, community health centers, equipment manufacturers, rural hospitals, regional hospitals, hospices, long-term care organizations, mental health facilities, non-profits, and pharmaceutical/medical device companies.
