JI Companies is working with HealthPlan of Texas (HOT), a part of Trinity Mother Frances Health System in Tyler, to provide self-funded benefits administration services to HOT’s major clients. JI has provided workers’ compensation and loss control services to the Health System since 1991.

“We look forward to providing a new dimension in our relationship and broadening the depth of offerings to Trinity Mother Frances,” commented Frances Fey, JI’s CEO. “This relationship is an excellent combination of expert claims administration and superior health care service.”

Under the agreement, JI will perform benefits administration services for the Tyler-based employees of Trane and Goodyear. JI and HOT will also offer employee benefits services to clients throughout east Texas. These accounts will be serviced by the Health System’s medical provider network, with physicians and facilities located in 22 counties.
