Insuranceopedia explains Third Party Administration
It often makes more sense for companies to hire third party administration companies that it does for them to try to handle all of the administrative responsibilities themselves. Third party administration firms specialize in administrating insurance policies. They often work as an intermediary between the insurer and the company.
