The Quantum Group Files TPA Application
Date:7/15/2008

WELLINGTON, Fla., July 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Quantum Group (Amex: QGP) (http://www.QuantumMD.com) has announced that it has filed an application to become a third party administrator (TPA) with the state of Florida. The Company has incorporated a subsidiary company, Renaissance Administrative Services, Inc. (RASI), to provide administrative claims processing services to existing partners of the Company.

A TPA provides an outsourced solution to companies providing insurance. While the risk of loss remains with the company providing the insurance, the TPA offers the capability to administer the claims process including claims administration, premium collection, enrollment and other administrative activities. Traditionally, a TPA is contracted by a health insurer or self-insuring companies to administer services. The Company expects to receive approval of the application from the state by the end of the year.

Noel J. Guillama, President & CEO of The Quantum Group, commented, "The launch of RASI is another significant milestone for Quantum. We expect to provide greater efficiencies to the process of paying healthcare providers. We believe that Quantum is strategically positioned at the axis of interaction between healthcare providers, payers, hospitals and patients. RASI is the natural next step to our mission and provides us with the opportunity to consolidate multiple payer procedures into a single process for receipt and adjudication of medical bills as well as prompt payment. With our industry expertise and dedication to implement proven technologies and processes, we expect to reduce the time a provider typically waits for receipt of payment by 50% or more by the end of 2009." Currently, providers in the state of Florida wait an average of 28 days to receive payment for services rendered.
