One of Canada's Leading Third Party Administrators

Johnston Group is a 'third party administrator', a company that specializes in group benefit programs. The concept behind a Third Party Administrator (TPA) is that an insurance company cannot be all things to all people. As a TPA, we perform many of the tasks typically carried out by the insurer. These include:

  • Plan design and administration
  • Billings and customer service
  • Insured and Self-funded program options
  • Access to pay-direct prescription drug cards
  • On-line administration utilities

Employers choosing benefit solutions with Johnston Group also enjoy the benefits of using a third party administrator:

  • One enrollment and one billing of all insured benefits
  • The ability to change insurance carriers without re-enrollment
  • Access to ancillary products and services, such as Best Doctors® services, group RRSP plans, or optional insurance programs.
  • Customized employee booklets
  • Fast, efficient health, dental and short term disability claim adjudication and payment
  • Control over your employee benefit program

Their programs are cost effective, comprehensive and flexible and put companies back in charge of their employee benefit plans.
