Liberty Mutual, Negley Offer Behavioral Health Care Agency Package

June 10, 2008

Retail and wholesale brokers working with Negley Associates can now add workers compensation coverage to their clients’ professional liability, general liability, directors and officers liability, excess liability and property policies through Liberty Mutual’s Alternative Markets operations.

Liberty Mutual has over 96 years of workers’ compensation experience and Negley Associates’ experience spans 20 years in behavioral health care. Through this comprehensive program, Negley clients now get access to Liberty Mutual’s workers’ compensation loss control and claims expertise.

“Behavioral health care employees face risks that are far different than those faced by employees in other professions. Our expertise can help clients identify and avoid sources of loss as well as recover faster when a claim occurs,” said Nancy Glennon, managing director for Liberty Mutual’s Alternative Markets.

Negley, an underwriting management firm serving the insurance needs of the behavioral health care industry, also manages the Mental Health Risk Retention Group, which is owned entirely by mental health care providers to offer a stable source of liability coverage.

“Like any other non-profit organization, mental health care operations function on a lean budget,” said Nicholas Bozzo, president of Negley Associates. “By teaming up with Liberty Mutual, we give our clients coverage from a strong insurer and the resources to effectively reduce employee injuries. Using these resources can help clients decrease the amount of money they pay out for temporary workers and administrative paperwork and paying out less for these indirect costs means more money to provide direct services to the people they serve.”
