INTEGRA Administrative Group, Inc. Selects ACS To Drive Savings On Ancillary Healthcare Spending

American CareSource Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANCI) has added a prominent new client: INTEGRA Administrative Group, Inc., a national third-party administrator (TPA) based in Seaford, Delaware. American CareSource (ACS) offers a single-source cost-containment service focused on ancillary categories such as dialysis, laboratory, diagnostic imaging, infusion, durable medical equipment and home health.

Through the relationship with ACS, INTEGRA clients are expected to save an additional 7-9 percent on their ancillary healthcare spend, as well as gain access to ACS’ analytics functionality. ACS’ comprehensive network includes 4,900 ancillary service providers at more than 34,000 sites across the United States. As a result of the relationship between ACS and INTEGRA, ACS strengthens its position in the Mid-Atlantic region, where thousands of additional member lives will now have access to its network of ancillary service providers.

“We selected ACS because of its unique focus on ancillary categories and its proven savings results. Working with ACS moves us forward in our mission to control medical spend without increasing costs to our employer groups,” said D. Scott Smith, chief marketing officer for INTEGRA.

William J. Simpson, Jr., president and chief operating officer of ACS, added, “Our agreement with INTEGRA is a significant win for ACS. The company looks forward to bringing the value of our suite of ancillary provider solutions to INTEGRA’s clients.”
