Alterna is focused on alternative risk solutions, captive management, and services within the health care industry that maximize any and all insurance-related benefits. Our team of industry experts combines deep medical professional liability insurance expertise with proven hands-on experience in analyzing, developing, and managing group, captive, risk retention group, and other insurance facilities.
One Company Approach
In many cases, captives and RRGs have multiple vendors supporting them. With Alterna, we provide—through one company—the needed expertise and services you need to effectively manage your risk.
Medical professionals typically believe they get better service and outcomes from a company they own, rather than from a giant, national firm owned by stockholders. But they also want the big ideas, the expertise of national leaders, and the financial strength of an established company. Alterna provides physicians and groups looking for alternative risk financing the best of both worlds-ownership, focused expertise, and creative solutions to managing risk.
Kristin Kenny is responsible for leadership and management of Alterna. She is actively involved in industry associations such as the national Medical Professional Liability Association and participates as well as in local and regional forums. She holds a CPA designation and earned a BBA degree at Gonzaga University.
Jonathan McKenzie has more than 15 years of experience in the captive industry, initially with Marsh and more recently with Willis. He has formed and managed multiple forms of captives and traditionally licensed insurance companies in all of the major domiciles, including the District of Columbia, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, South Carolina, and Vermont.
Dr. Tobey Williams spent the last 16 years directly working with physicians to build and manage alternative market companies.
