Claims Administration

Meritain Health (formerly AEI) is committed to providing ASBAIT the resources to help manage the long-term costs of their health benefit programs. By having a focus on current and future healthcare costs, they provide the most value for ASBAIT's members.

We believe the only way to change the rising trend in healthcare costs is to change the behavior of employees, promote healthier lifestyles, and make them better healthcare consumers.

Client & Customer Service

ASBAIT is committed to providing a personal and caring service experience.

As part of a commitment to service excellence, we have structured a client service team to provide ASBAIT member schools with a dedicated Client Relationship Manager, Client Relationship Coordinator and a Client Liaison. This team will closely work with each school and proactively provide pragmatic advice and insight into the ASBAIT program and utilization trends. We have a strong belief that through education and service, we can help ASBAIT member schools to improve the health and well being of their employees.

Dedicated service representatives are trained to assist employees with all aspects of healthcare consumerism. As the emerging role of consumerism in healthcare continues, we place great emphasis on our members with every opportunity made available to us.
