Napa River Insurance Services Announces New Product Offering New York, NY – September 8, 2016 – Napa River Insurance Services, Inc. (Napa River), the third‐party administrator (TPA) wholly owned by Hudson Insurance Group (Hudson), today announced the expansion of its service offerings to include public entities and municipalities. Napa River was launched in 2014 as a full‐service provider of unbundled claims and risk management services to clients with self‐ insured retentions (SIRs). Napa River initially focused solely on the healthcare and transportation industries, the former being hospitals and physician groups and the latter trucking companies.
Napa River is led by Peggy Killeen, senior vice president and chief claims officer of Hudson. Christopher Morkan was appointed as Napa River’s director to manage its day‐to‐day operations in 2015.
“Napa River has grown out of Hudson’s core claims handling know‐how, leveraging its technology investments and best‐in‐class claims expertise,” said Ms. Killeen. “Using this strong foundation, Napa River can provide superior service at a reasonable price.” Christopher Gallagher, president and CEO of Hudson, said, “I am excited about Napa River’s ability to be an active partner in managing claims within the SIR. This is one more way we can help businesses — and public entities— protect their capital. The growth we are seeing is a testament to our people and their expertise.”
