TAMPA, FL. (January 18, 2023) Leading Edge Administrators and Renalogic Announce Official Partnership. Leading Edge Administrators, a leading third-party health administrator, today announced its exclusive partnership with Renalogic for dialysis cost containment services.

With 20 years of expertise, Renalogic is the leader in containing costs associated with kidney disease. Since Leading Edge’s inception in 2010, maintaining affordable care for its members has been a key company initiative.

“With roughly one in seven Americans experiencing chronic kidney disease, our employer group clients needed an innovative, proven, cost-efficient solution to manage increasing medical claims spending related to kidney disease,” said Shared Savings Director, Jeff Lawmaster. “I think both companies’ missions align perfectly to save the employer groups and their members as much as possible without interfering with quality care. That is a strong statement and one I am proud to be a part of,” commented Lawmaster.

“We’re excited to have Leading Edge as a partner. In today’s economy, health plans are dealing with rapidly inflating healthcare costs, rising operating expenses due to inflation, and weakening demand for their products and services due to the looming recession,” said Scott Vold, Chief Commercial Officer for Renalogic. “Putting cost containment solutions in place should be a part of every health plan’s strategy to help protect their bottom lines. We are looking forward to helping Leading Edge employer group clients do just that,” concluded Vold.

Its focus is creating affordable health care for employers and their employees through a variety of services, including carveout networks such as the one created by its partnership with Renalogic.
