Celebrating 100 Years: WHA Shared Services Program/Primary Resources/WHA Financial Solutions
Originally called the WHA Shared Services Program (WHASSP), then transitioning through the names Primary Resources and WHA Financial Solutions, WHASSP was formed by WHA in 1981 to close existing gaps in the marketplace and help WHA better serve its members.
In the early 1980s WHASSP instituted programs in the areas of management engineering, hospital rate-setting commission legal assistance and Medicare payment maximization. WHASSP offered a number of programs tailored to member needs that provided both economic and technical benefits hospitals weren’t receiving before or for which they were paying premium prices.
By the late 1980s, WHASSP had become a full-service program provider offering employee benefits, retirement services, insurance coverage, management services and information products.
Today the employee benefits, retirement services and insurance offerings that once were provided by WHA Financial Solutions are made available through WHA’s Premier Partner, LMC Insurance & Risk Management. For more information, see their website
