About Us

About Insurance Design Administrators

With roots stemming from a meeting at Madison Square Garden in 1979-, Insurance Design Administrators’ own journey began in 1983. From our Founder’s living room, IDA grew into three successive locations to accommodate operations. With all staff on-site in Oakland, New Jersey, we are hands-on and accountable to each other to produce the best result for you.

We are a fully licensed Third Party Administrator, and although not required by state or federal law, we conduct an annual SSAE 18, SOC 1 audit because we believe it represents the highest standard in our industry.

IDA has over 20,000 employee lives under active management, having processed over $100M in payments last year. IDA manages over $15M in reinsurance premium across multiple carriers and MGUs, securing the best terms for plans. With lives in 40 states, IDA’s reach is both local and national.  Matching the best network to plans and their priorities, in-network participation is excellent.  Out of network negotiation is energetic. Combined, our clients routinely achieve savings in the 55% to 68% window from initial billed charges.

A proud member of the Society of Professional Benefit Administrators (SPBA), many of our staff are recognized for their expertise, serving on executive boards and steering committees of related associations and vendors.

Powered by original thinking, IDA places you where you belong, in control.
