The Kempton Group Administrators, Inc.

Jay Kempton – President & CEO; Co-Founder, Free Market Medical Association
Website: www.kemptongroup.com

The Kempton Group Administrators, Inc. (KGA), creator of KPPFree, has been a Third Party Administrator (TPA) of self-funded employer-sponsored benefit plans since 1969. We are still a family-owned and family-oriented company that prides itself in bringing true value to our clients.

Managing a health benefit plan today means more than just processing health claims for members. Self-funded plans are particularly impacted by the rising cost of claims. We do not promote gimmicks; we help you fix your Plan. The job of a TPA is changing. A good third party administrator can no longer focus solely on claims processing, having the highest auto adjudication, or the fanciest software, leaving the cost of the claims themselves on the shoulders of other vendors such as PPO networks. This system of plan management no longer works in our healthcare landscape. Employers can no longer sustain relying on third parties who have a financial incentive to allow claims costs to continue on unchecked.

A fully-transparent third party administrator who believes in promoting and supporting transparent, free market providers is a game changer for self-funded employers. WE ARE THAT TPA.

Surgery Center of Oklahoma
Dr. Keith Smith – Co-Founder, Free Market Medical Association
Website: www.surgerycenterok.com

The Surgery Center of Oklahoma is a 32,535 square foot, state-of-the-art multispecialty facility in Oklahoma City, owned and operated by approximately 40 of the top surgeons and anesthesiologists in central Oklahoma.

If you have a high deductible or are part of a self-insured plan at a large company, you owe it to yourself or your business to take a look at our facility and pricing which is listed on this site. If you are considering a trip to a foreign country to have your surgery, you should look here first. Finally, if you have no insurance at all, this facility will provide quality and pricing that we believe are unmatched.

Transparent, direct, package pricing means the patient knows exactly what the cost of the service will be upfront.
