Staff Support


PPC Partner Plus associates are primarily healthcare reviewers.  The total staff consists of fifteen associates, which includes fourteen quality reviewers.   We are located in Granbury, Texas.  PPC staff members all have previous experience in the healthcare industry in claims administration and as claims quality reviewers.  We do not utilize trainees since claims experience is a tool necessary for quality review of claims administration.

For staff training on a national level, PPC staff attends the Self Insurance Institute of America, National Association of Health Underwriters and the Health Insurance Association of America.  On a local level, our staff attends and participates in the DFW Healthcare Alliance, Texas Professional Benefit Administration Association, Worldwide Employee Benefits Network, and DFW Business Group on Health.  Founder Nan Coleman attended The Institute of Internal Auditors, Effective Auditing of Health Benefits Administration.  PPC also subscribes to various industry publications.
