Years in business: 11
Location: Greenwood Village
CEO: Jack McClurg (Watch an interview on ColoradoBiz TV.)
Company snapshot: HealthTrans offers health-care management solutions for employer groups, managed care organizations, coalitions, pharmacy benefit managers, workers' compensation plans, government-sponsored plans, retail pharmacy groups and specialty companies. The privately held company processes approximately 100 million claims annually for its clients, representing more than 15 million people.
Notable practices: HealthTrans recently packaged a program to help municipalities provide discount prescription and health-care services to help lower costs for at-need and at-risk populations across the United States. HealthTrans then went after one of the largest markets for at-need and at-risk individuals and won a contract for New York. The company integrated its discount products and services into the city's private sector, including call center, local and community services, social media, grass roots, and public and private education.
Community involvement: HealthTrans sponsors several local and national events focusing on funding cystic fibrosis awareness and research, AIDS prevention and awareness, breast cancer research, stroke awareness and the advancement of student achievement and recognition. The company funded an initiative arranging for 50 disadvantaged families from the greater Denver and Boulder areas to receive a year free of membership in the HealthTrans Access discount health-care program.
