The EZ Comp team has had the pleasure of working together for over 20+ years! Collaboratively the team has over 90+ years of experience in several areas of healthcare including managed care, provider networks, practice management, dental claim management, behavioral health and skilled nursing within the Workers’ Compensation, Liability and Commercial Insurance markets.
With Stacey Whidden, CEO at the helm this team jointly developed, managed and eventually sold the first dental claim management company in the market. This unique concept was developed by listening to the needs of the customer and understanding their pain points relating to dental claim management and the difficulty finding dentists to accept a work comp claim. Today, dental claim management is a common product that customers view as a necessity and offered by many work comp vendors in the market today however EZ continues to be the market leader in dental claim management due to the longevity of experience managing these types of claims.
What sets EZ apart from its competition? The team is like minded in that it stands strong on their grass roots philosophy of and simply, “its all about the customer, prompt processing of their claims and communication!” It is about making the customer’s life EZ by offering ease of use processes and customization, if necessary. Thoughtful development ensures products that incorporate value, competitive pricing and favorable outcomes.
