About

It’s simple. We’re a technology company — a next-generation technology company. We are working with plan sponsors, insurers and pharmaceutical companies to pioneer new paradigms for delivering group drug, dental and extended health plans, as well as pension plans. Our game-changing SaaS offering empowers you to manage your plan to your best advantage.

Our history tells the story

NexgenRx began operations in 2003, leveraging our unique technology to provide plan sponsors and insurers with independent assistance adjudicating drug, health and dental claims. Over the decades, we developed exceptional claims-processing expertise as well as penetrating insight into the intricacies of plan management, compliance and security, while ensuring we continue to meet individual client needs.

Our experience positioned us to expand our offering to include pension and benefit plan administration and adjudication.

We’ve broadened our client base to include multi-employer union trusts and pharmaceutical companies while developing technology that offers new possibilities to empower our clients.

While we continue to manage claims and plans on behalf of our clients, NexgenRx also enables them to take control of their own plans via self-administration. By being nimble and responsive, we place opportunities for tailored plan management in their hands. Through flexible platforms and constant innovations that drive automation, we help simplify processes and ease burdens.
