In 2016, Ascension Risk Services, MissionPoint Health Partners, and US Health Holdings, which includes Automated Benefits Services (ABS), ABS Managed Care Administrators (ABS-MCA) and US Health and Life Insurance Company, joined together as Ascension Care Management (ACM), an Ascension subsidiary. Ascension is the largest nonprofit health system in the U.S. and the world’s largest Catholic health system.
On June 1, 2017, Ascension Risk Services and MissionPoint Health Partners, and US Health Holdings will unite under the ACM brand structure. Automated Benefit Services (ABS) and US Health and Life Insurance Company (USHL) will remain ACM subsidiaries.
We use self-insurance trusts and captives to achieve a risk-financing model that’s more cost effective than commercial insurance. We have achieved significant cost savings in professional general liability (PGL) and workers’ compensation programs by collaborating with Ascension Health Care Excellence and risk management, occupational health and safety colleagues to promote patient and associate safety.
We are also developing new insurance and reinsurance products to support risk-taking by Ascension’s managed care organizations and health plans, and contribute to the value proposition for Ascension’s aligned physicians.
Automated Benefit Services is one of the nation’s leading providers of third party administration (TPA) services, offering world-class capabilities, while remaining committed to delivering service with a personal, customer-centric focus– our telephones are answered by live operators, we invite employers and members to visit us in our offices, and our definition of success is measured by each individual member's positive experience.
ABS services nearly 300,000 employee lives, and processes more than 1.5 million claims for member clients with a total value exceeding $400 million annually.
Through the application of various managed care principles and activities, ABS Managed Care Administrators (ABSMCA) provides value, flexibility and service to members, providers and clients. ABSMCA offers a portfolio of services which, bundled or stand-alone as deemed appropriate for each client, allow the attainment of this goal.

In addition, ABSMCA is committed to providing high level technological resources with high level reporting capabilities staffed by professional information technology personnel.
