The Fall (October) 2005 edition of Summit Perspectives detailed Summit Re’s new transplant program features with United Resources Networks (URN). Some key points to keep in mind regarding the program are:
- URN access fees are discounted for transplant services on business reinsured through Summit Re. These discounts are not available by directly contracting with URN or through any other reinsurer.
- URN will extend the Summit Re discount fee arrangements to a new Summit Re client who was using URN through another reinsurer.
- A Summit Re client does not have to use URN exclusively in order to obtain the discounted access fees for transplant services where URN is utilized on business reinsured through Summit Re.
- Zero Access Fees (ZAP) is an exclusive URN arrangement with Summit Re. It provides for alternative transplant facility terms with no access fees. These terms can be elected on a case-by-case basis at the time of each transplant referral.
