King of Prussia, PA, November 18, 2009 —For the third year in a row, TMG Health Inc. has been named the number one provider of Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) services to the government health plan market by a leading independent research firm. Brown-Wilson Group’s well-regarded guide, “The Black Book of Outsourcing,” has again ranked TMG Health atop all BPO vendors in the category of Medicare and Medicaid Managed Care services.

Jack Tighe, TMG Health’s President and CEO, notes the significance of this latest accolade. ‘With today’s turbulent healthcare marketplace, Business Process Outsourcing is attracting heightened interest on the part of insurers, health plans, and others nationally.
